Floyd Mayweather sparked social media in Ghana on fire when the undisputed boxing champion was seen in images rocking a Ghanaian flag. This set social media in Ghana on fire as it may have seem as though it was an indication that the rumour that he will be coming to Ghana may be true. And he rocked the look more than once embracing the Ghanaian flag.
One look was a shirt made of various flags including the Ghanaian flag. The other look was him in an all black leather suit and pants wearing a scarf, again with various flags, notably the USA and the Ghanaian flag.
It’s been identified that the scarf is actually an LV Flags Fur Scarf sells for $13,900 (GHC77,000) for a mini version which is 35 x 165 cm (Length x Height). A maxi version which measures 55 x 270 cm (Length x Height) costs $37,000 (GHC206,000). In fact, Ghana is most likely not on his list, the pieces are items from a Michael Jackson tribute collection by Louis Vuitton designed by Ghanaian Virgil Abloh.

This is probably not anything to the heavy weight boxer, however after prices wear revealed, the Ghanaian social media went into a frenzy, firstly obviously why he would spend so much money on a flag, and secondly about LV selling Ghanaian paraphernalia.
The reactions has set discussions all over various facebook groups. However, Let’s not forgot, Mayweather is a millionaire, spending such money is nothing. But also let’s not forget, he is a public figure, and it’s more than likely he was giving the scarf for free as PR for the company, possibly even paid to wear it. Don’t get caught up in the hype.
About them selling Ghana paraphernalia, take that upon President Nana Akufo Addo.
