His early life
Despite being born in the town of Kibi, Abedi grew up in the norther outskirt of Accra which
is Dome. He attended Ghana Senior high school in Tamale. Abedi also came from a
family with football lineage as he is known to be the brother to Kwame Ayew (ex player for
Hearts of oak) and Sola Ayew (ex player for Black meteors).
It was not a surprise when his sons took the same path. There is not so much on Maha Ayew as she keeps a low profile but we know she is the backbone of the Ayew family and she is wonderful at that.
We hope to see her keep supporting the family like always so the country sees more great
things from the family.
