Socialite and media personality Sheilah Gashumba has extended a heartfelt suggestion to the well-known singer Bebe Cool, urging him to nurture his son, Alpha Thierry Ssali, into Uganda’s version of David Beckham.
The young Alpha has garnered significant attention and admiration on social media, particularly following his outstanding performance, which culminated in Express FC’s 1-0 victory over Soltilo Bright Stars in the Uganda Premier League.
Alpha’s exceptional skill, exemplified by a masterful first touch and a stunning goal, has earned him widespread acclaim. Sheilah Gashumba believes that it’s high time the Gagamel boss, Bebe Cool, began documenting his son’s football journey, much like the father of British football icon David Beckham did. This documentary could serve as an inspiring resource for future aspiring footballers.
Bebe Cool expressed immense joy as he witnessed his son open his scoring account for Express. Regrettably, he couldn’t be present in person to share this special moment.
Bebe Cool has invested his resources not only in his music career but also in supporting his son’s burgeoning football journey, showcasing his commitment to his family.
Alpha commenced his football journey in the Proline Academy, under the ownership of former Cranes footballer Mujib Kasule. Graduating from the academy, he has played at various levels and recently joined Express FC at the start of the season. His performance for the Red Eagles has garnered attention and admiration.
Nevertheless, it is essential that Alpha’s father, Bebe Cool, endeavors to shield him from the often unpredictable world of social media.
Excessive praise and criticism can potentially have adverse effects on his career and hinder his development. Sheilah Gashumba’s guidance underscores the importance of nurturing Alpha’s football talents with care and consideration.
