It is not a constable fact the the late Shomo Quaye was a highly devoted fan of Accra Hearts of Oak, having spent his whole life supporting the 2005 CAF Confederations Cup winners.
However, ghanasportspage.com has made a critical observation from how the late football fan was mourned by way of tribute by both Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
Following Shomo Quaye’s tragic death on Wednesday, his darling club Accra Hearts of Oak were the first to take to their Twitter to express their sadness over the untimely death of their staunch fan, but how they recognised him, compared to that of Asante Kotoko, a club the late Shomo would never want to support, raises a little concern.
Accra Hearts of Oak, despite using the club’s official social media handle to mourn the passing of their fan, never used any colours of the club, nor the club’s crest to feature the picture used. Comparatively, Asante Kotoko took time, designed a special flyer, using the club’s crest and its colours to show solidarity, joining their arch rivals in mourning the late Shomo.
Whiles this seems not to have caught the eyes of many, ghanasportspage.com wonders if Hearts of Oak’s recognition given their late committed fan is really befitting.
Could they have done better? Well, we think the Phobians could have at least done if not just as their rivals did, at least a better one considering the commitment level of the late Shomo. Looking at the two releases by both Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, one wonders whether Shomo was a Kotoko fan or a Hearts of Oak fan.
The late Shomo Quaye was laid to rest on Thursday afternoon.
