Premier League legend Emmanuel Adebayor mesmerised Nigerian on social media after speaking in a clean and clear Yoruba language.
The 37-year-old was born to a Nigerian parent in Lome and has spent most of his life in Togo except for moving abroad due to his football career.
He spent time playing for Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Crystal Palace before embarking on a fresh journey to Turkey.
During his three-year reign at the Etihad Stadium, Adebayor was sent on a short-term loan deal to Real Madrid where he lifted the Copa Del Rey before returning to England later on that season.
However, despite spending little or no time in his fatherland, no one would have imagined the striker could speak Yoruba fluently talkless of imagining him speaking in parables.
While posting the video on social media, the former Gunners and Spurs man accompanied it with a caption that reads:
"Seyi Emmanuel Adebayo salutes to all my Nigerian brothers and sisters. Only love."
The 37-year-old has been clubless since 2020 after parting ways with Paraguayan club Olimpia after the outbreak of COVID-19 last year.

The 36-year-old Togolese is without a club having left Paraguayan outfit, Olimpia, in July 2020 despite having a deal with them until December last year.
However, the club-less striker has been showing off his wealth in terms of his fleet in his home country.
