Owusu-Koramoah is shown watching a young boy play football at a market in Accra, Ghana. The boy imagines himself playing with the superstars of the NFL as he runs past vendor after vendor. Running back Saquon Barkley, wide receiver Justin Jefferson, linebacker Fred Warner, and defensive lineman Cameron Jordan appear in uniform.
Owusu-Koramoah wasn’t shown in uniform, instead in his kente gown, looking down upon the boy and his imaginary game. Owusu-Koramoah has become a fashion icon for his traditionalist outfits.
The commercial ends with the boy stumbling on a training facility for NFL Africa and chatting with Super Bowl legend Osi Umenyiora about the beautiful sport. Umenyiora fostered and promoted the program throughout the continent.
Last season, Owusu-Koramoah and Ogbo Okoronkwo traveled with NFL Africa. The pair helped run training camps for undiscovered football prospects. Working for Ghana and other African countries means a lot to the young linebacker. It’s awesome to see his love reciprocated in campaigns.
