This ranking was done by the richlifestyle website who said  “the beautiful game of football has made many African footballers very rich; with success and fame these players have some of the sexiest African women in their lives. Not like European WAGs (WAGs refer to wives and girlfriends of sportsmens) who enjoy fame and a sort of notoriety in the media, most African WAGs are very low-key; they stay out of the public eye.”

Richlifestyle’s ratings put Menaye on top of the list. The Canadian-born Ghanaian model, entrepreneur and philanthropist won the Miss Universe Ghana in 2004. In 2007…

With her degree in marketing from York University, Toronto, Canada, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Business  Science (BBusSci), MBA, and Master of Marketing Research (MMR) she not only is the most beautiful but the most impressive wife on the list…Talk about beauty with Brains!  Sulley sure is one lucky husband…

ToureFrontier market specialist Silk Invest has launched a fund offering African footballers wealth management solutions.  The African Opportunities for Footballers Fund, domiciled in Luxembourg, will primarily invest in African markets.    “Africa is at the heart of the investment thesis and we believe that African footballers have a big role to play in further developing the continent,” Zin Bekkali, group chief executive and CIO, said.   According to the company, the idea behind the fund is to help African football players benefit from growing African markets while building a savings plan for their post-career financial needs.    As part of the strategy, former Arsenal player Kolo Toure is collaborating on the new fund, working with the investment team that includes 11 different African nationalities across the continent.   “Kolo is keen on investing in Africa. Toure is currently the lead investor of the fund, with others expected to start investing.

While mainly targeted at African footballers, the fund is open to other high net worth investors.
