Benjamin Aidoo, the man behind one of 2020's most popular viral videos, the ‘dancing pallbearers’ meme, says he would be honoured to 'take Ronaldinho, Lionel  Messi and Diego Maradona to their final home’.

Aidoo set up Nana Otafrija Pallbearing and Waiting Services in Accra in 2007, aiming to bring some joy into the funeral service by celebrating the life of the deceased with music and dance.

The company have now become famous beyond Ghana and all over the world, with one video of their service in particular finding popularity on social media.

In an interview with the Foot Mercato, Aidoo who admits to being a Barcelona and Chelsea supporter was asked jokingly, which footballer he would most like to take to their grave.

In response, the Ghanaian said: “I wish them a long life, of course, but if I had that chance, I dream of driving Ronaldinho to his last home.

"Then Maradona and finally Messi. Ronaldinho is a player who has always impressed me."

"It would be a tribute from the dancer that I am to the dancer that he was in the field."

Asked about Luis Suarez, Aidoo admits he find it difficult celebrating the success of the Uruguayan despite being a Barcelona fan.

That's because the former  Liverpool man helped Uruguay denied Ghana a late goal that could have led Ghanaians to the 2010 World Cup semi-final with a deliberate handball.

"I'm divided. I am ashamed. I feel so bad," he said. “Whenever I see this player, even when I hear his name, Suarez, I am sad.

"Because a hand from Suarez made my Ghana team return home without being able to play in the semi-finals, which was terrible.

"We have a saying here for Suarez. The name Suarez means the impossible. If you want to achieve something or go somewhere and Suarez is there, it means that you will not succeed. If you really want something and Suarez is there, you can never reach it."
