“I am here to wish you a quick recovery…and it is so sad we lost Alex but I’m sure he is in good hands and God is in control let us pray for his soul to rest in perfect peace.”

“I’m praying for you as well to get back on your feet quickly so that you can move again, dance again.

“I’ve been watching you on YouTube, Instagram keep doing what you are doing and make sure you make our brother Alex happy wherever he is and I can guarantee you.

“Much love from Togo, and we are all Africans so we have to be together in sad moments and the good moments we have to enjoy together, Peace and one love,” Adebayor signed off.
