    Son of Prince Boateng and Christine Rahn. Kevin-Prince’s maternal grandfather and footballer Helmut Rahn were cousins. Kevin represented Germany at youth level, but chose to play for Ghana at senior level.

    Kevin-Prince’s half-brother (same father, different German mothers) is German footballer Jérôme Boateng.

    Helmut Rahn is a German football (soccer, if you want) legend in the world champions’ team in 1954 and the grand-uncle of Kevin Prince (according to German Wikipedia); perhaps Kevin Prince could have followed him, but he decided to play for Ghana …

    (But I think he wouldn’t have made it into the German national team; too many strong players in the midfield)
