Years after their initial courtship, Ghanaian footballer Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu is preparing to wed his long-term girlfriend, Reggietta Affua Arthur, as confirmed by various sources.
Despite their relationship being kept private from the public and media, the couple has been together for quite some time.
While there is limited information available about Reggietta, it is worth noting that Badu is a highly regarded professional footballer from Ghana. He has represented his country in numerous international competitions, earning an impressive 78 caps for the Ghana national team.
Badu’s journey in international football began when he was called up to the Black Stars on 22nd May 2008. He made his senior international debut on 8 June 2008 against Lesotho, scoring his first goal against Congo in June 2011. Prior to this, he had also represented Ghana at the under-20 and under-23 levels.
In 2009, Badu was selected to play for the Black Satellites squad in the African Youth Championship held in Rwanda. He also participated in the 2009 African Championship of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire and the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt, representing the domestic-based team of the Black Stars.
One of Badu’s most memorable moments came during the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup Final against Brazil, where he scored the winning sudden death penalty. This victory made Ghana the first African nation to win the prestigious tournament.
Badu’s international career continued to flourish as he was selected for the Africa Cup of Nations in 2010, 2012, and 2013. Although Ghana finished as runners-up to Egypt in 2010, they achieved fourth-placed finishes in both the 2012 and 2013 editions of the tournament.
During the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, Badu showcased his exceptional skills by executing a remarkable mid-air volley goal in a group match against Guinea. This extraordinary goal was later nominated for the 2012 FIFA Puskás Award, which recognizes the best goal scored worldwide.
After missing the 2010 FIFA World Cup due to injury, Badu made a triumphant return to the international stage by being selected for Ghana’s squad in the 2014 tournament.
As Badu’s wedding to Reggietta approaches, their love story serves as a testament to their enduring relationship, which has withstood the test of time away from the public eye.
