Appiah to unveil clothing line
Ghana captain Stephen Appiah will today unveil is clothing range when his brand is launched in Accra to support his charity foundation, StepApp.
The 26 year-old midfielder says proceeds from the clothing line would used to help expand the activities of his charity foundation in aid of the needy across Africa.
“StepApp is a brand I created in July 2006 shortly after the World Cup. Deriving from my name, StepApp (“Step Up”) also represents an ideology that I have always stood by ever since I was a child.
“This was a principle that encouraged me to persevere, so as to attain greater heights from my challenging background.
“After the 2006 world cup, I decided to make StepApp a household brand because I was overwhelmed by the support I received from the entire Ghanaian community and the world at large.
“I thought it would be good to give something back and as a health conscious person and a fashion lover, I decided to fulfill my desires by starting a foundation to give the underprivileged access to basic medical health care and a clothing range to share my fashion sense with my fans,” says the Ghana captain.
