My name Kevin was a mistake: KP Boateng

Published on: 10 November 2017

Ghanaian player Kevin Prince Boateng has stated that his name KEVIN was a mistake.

According to him, his name should have been KELVIN not KEVIN.

”I should actually be Kelvin” and not Kevin as widely known in the world of football," he said “I do not like my first name. That was a mistake in the birth certificate, nobody knows that yet. I should actually be Kelvin. That would, of course, have been a top name: Kelvin-Prince, “Boateng revealed speaking to German radio station HIT RADIO FFH on Thursday. “I would not have had to play football at all, because the name alone is already stellar. And then they wrote that wrong in the hospital, “said the half-brother of World Champion Jerome Boateng further:” So my name was Kevin and then it stayed like that”.

”My mom was operated immediately after birth and could not intervene. I broke her pelvis when I came out. I really wanted to get out.”
