Award-winning coach Paulus Shipanga has diverted his attention to opening an entertainment spot called Tate Pau’s in Khomasdal.
As football matters are still at crossroads with infighting and players not having played any premier league soccer for the past two years, Shipanga has opted to turn his free time in creating something lasting which is family oriented where friends can meet and relax. “I’ve always been into entertainment, I like bringing people together to socialize and have fun. I like keeping families together. Meeting new friends, enjoying life with the little you have. Life is too short not to appreciate family and friends,” he explained.
Weah, as he was known in his playing days, feels that Covid-19 has changed people’s mindset and the way of living. For him, it has made him realize a lot and how to adapt and survive. “The pandemic has made me realize a lot, how to hustle better. Life is too short. But, the good part is I refused to be dictated by Covid-19. I love life and I enjoy every single second of it. I like social media because it keeps me closer to my friends that I couldn’t see,’’ referring to the fun side of him he usually posts on social media.
The former Black Africa coach informed this reporter he is not yet ready to walk away from the beautiful game when the dust settles down. “I still have a lot to offer in my coaching career, so I’ll definitely be involved somehow in football structures. Business-wise, I’ll also do that when I have time. I aim to have a sports bar,” he narrated.
Shipanga recently held a family fun day which proved to be a huge success and now plans to have a similar one in his hometown Walvis Bay, summer bash in Usakos, golden oldies in Windhoek and a colour party before the year wraps up.
