Is Raphael Chukwu one of the Richest Ex-Downs players of all time? (See his business ventures).

Football is a good business on its own, but for some people, it is the only way to reach their goals. Most footballers grew up in poor places and saw football as their only chance to change their lives. Well, some people were born lucky, like Kaizer Motaung Jr. and Bamuza Sono, who started playing soccer because they loved it.

Well, we might as well add Raphael Chukwu to the list of football players who come from wealthy families. He doesn't need praise because people who saw him play know what kind of goals he scored. If you ask any football fan or expert, they'll say he's one of the best foreign strikers to ever play in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

During Chukwu's time in the PSL, his generation made salaries that, by today's standards, are way below average. During that time, he was one of the best players, so it's no surprise that he got paid well. Many football players from that time have nothing now, and they all say the same thing: "We made bad investments" and "We were paid peanuts."

Raphael Chukwu is still living a more than comfortable life, mostly because he comes from a rich family and made smart investment choices. He is actually a member of a royal family, and he didn't get into football to make money. When he retired, he would run some of the businesses that belonged to his family.

He also set up a telecommunications business in Nigeria because he knew there would always be hard times ahead. When South African telecoms giant MTN first came to Nigeria in 2001, he joined forces with them. As one of the directors of CantStop Telecommunications, he spends most of his time in the boardroom these days.

He is definitely one of the wealthiest former Mamelodi Sundowns players. The telecommunications industry is very profitable, and he also gets dividends as a director.
