Premier League legend Didier Drogba is also helping build a hospital.

Adebayor, however, isn’t ready to do the same.

“I always do things according to the wishes of my heart and not according to the words of others,” Adebayor said in a Facebook live video .

“I'm sorry that people compare me to Samuel Eto'o and Didier Drogba by asking me why I don't have a foundation or why I don't donate, as if I was the one who brought the coronavirus to Togo…

“I am neither the one nor the other, I am me, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor.
