Odartey Lamptey wins court case, meet his new family

Odartey Lamptey wins court case, meet his new familyAfter Thursday’s court ruling that legally severed all ties with his ex-wife, former Ghanaian footballer, Odartey Lamptey looks poised to having a happy new life with his new family.  The 21-year relationship between the ex-footballer and Gloria Appiah hit the rocks in 2013 after DNA results revealed that he was not the biological father of their three children.

Lamptey who had two biological children with his girlfriend, former Ghana’s Most Beautiful finalist and actress Ruweida Yakubu during his separation from his ex-wife also disclosed that he nearly committed suicide when he found out that he was not the father of three kids he catered for 21 years.

“When I was informed that the [three] children were not mine, I know how I felt. Playing the role of a father to children I thought were mine for 21 years and realising otherwise later, I nearly committed suicide. God gave me renewed energy and courage to withstand these pains and today, I can say I have gotten over them all.”

I thank God for taking me through this fight successfully because I didn’t know how far I could go. I’m grateful that the toils that I have gone through for the past 21 years did not go in vain. Though I’ve lost a few properties, I’m very content that at the end of this case, I have retained most of them and I’m still alive too,” he said.

Lamptey owns the Golden Lions Soccer Academy and Glow Lamp International School in Accra.
