How memorable and surprising can a birthday be on a Monday?

Istanbul Basaksehir forward Emmanuel Adebayor has gifted Ghanaian comedian Funny Face memorable birthday gifts that include a blank cheque.

Just before his side's Turkish Super Lig meeting against Yeni Malatyaspor, the Togo international took to social media to celebrate his friend who turned a year older and revealed his presents for him.

The 2008 African Footballer of the Year and the Accra-born entertainer have been friends for a long time, with the former Arsenal star buying the comedian a customised Range Rover back in 2012 as a birthday gift.

"Happy birthday to my good hommie and brother, Funny Face. We all know how much I care about you," Adebayor wrote on Instagram.

"For your birthday, I don't have much to give but there are two things I would like to say: I want you to go visit my friends from Hisense Ghana pick any item from their store and tell them I sent you. They will be waiting... I would like you to the nearest Access Bank in Accra, there is a blank cheque waiting. It is for you to write any amount on it. Please remember we promised not to finish each other's money, so be reasonable. Anyways, help me wish my brother Funny Face a happy birthday. May God bless your hustle."
