Asante Kotoko legend, Stephen Oduro has disclosed that the founder of International God's Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim was his football playmate during childhood.
According to Stephen Oduro, the controversial man of God was a better player during his childhood days and expected him to pursue it as a career.
He explained that he preferred to be on Obinim’s winning team than become his opponent since his side was always victorious.
Speaking in a recent interview, the former RTU player touted Obinim who was his neighbour as a very good player who chose the path of God.
“Daniel Obinim who today is a Bishop now was my neighbour and we were born in the same house, theirs was next to mine and a few other boys in the hood. He was a very good footballer but today he’s doing the work of God”, Stephen Oduro said.
He added, “Although people said I was a good footballer, I knew there were better players than me. I knew Obinim, for instance, was better than me, so if I don’t play on his side then I don’t play at all because I know they will score and beat us.”
