Partey has converted to Islam because of his Moroccan girlfriend Sara Bella and revealed in a recent interview in his native Ghana that he has taken on the name Yakubu.

“I have a girl I love, I know my side chicks will leave me but it’s no problem,” he joked in an Instagram video posted by Ghanaian journalist Nana Aba Anamoah.

“I grew up with Muslims so at the end of the day it’s the same thing. I’m already married and my Muslim name is Yakubu.”
