Yesterday was a sad day for Ghanaian boxer Emmanuel Tagoe as news indicated he has been an ‘Odartey Lamptey’ in disguise for the past 14yrs fathering a child that is not his.
DNA test can be a life saver but also a heart breaker to many. Imagine being in the shoes of Odartey Lamptey who fathered three kids without knowing they were not his. Odartey’s case, DNA tests proved that all three children by his ex-wife Gloria Appiah, were not his, leading him to attempt suicide.
Well the story with Ghana’s ‘Game Boy’ isn’t different though.
Yesterday, renowned sports journalist Saddick Adams Obama broke the shocking news to Ghanaians on his facebook wall. According to Saddick, the boxer had been fathering the child for the past fourteen (14) years only for a DNA test to reveal that he was not his biological child.

Saddick added that, the boxer had been fathering the child for the past fourteen (14) years only for a DNA test to reveal that he was not his biological child.
Well, we are clueless as to what prompted the boxer to go for the DNA test and how the boxer was taking the matter now.
However, Ghkasa.com chanced on a comment by one Marilyn Asante which reveals that the lady was forced out of home by Tagoe’s actions which made her end up in another man’s bed.
Marilyn wrote; According to the lady, Emmanuel Tagoe after making love to her that fateful night beat her up and tore her clothes after a misunderstanding. The lady ran to a neighbour’s house half naked and collapsed in the arms of this neighbour while sobbing uncontrollably. With the said neighbour rubbing his hands on her bare back and her breasts firmly pressed against his chest, they both became aroused and ended up having sex that night. The guy withdrew before ejaculation or so she thought.
How is she to blame
But what is with sports men and fathering another man’s kid?
