As everybody knows, Ronaldinho's life had some strange twists in 2020. He presented false documents in Paraguay and that made him spend five months behind the bars. But when he was released, he was not struggling financially as it was supposed. Actually, he was making tons of money.
That money came from him making a great use of his image. Showing his face in the Atletico Mineiro stadium and launching his brands of geneve and wine gave him good incomes, but what made crazy money for him was music, being the face of the rap group Tropa do Bruxo. And a good reason for that was something he did in those five months.
He wrote the lyrics of the rap songs in his free time in the cell. And when the time to come back home came, he used them with the band and in just three weeks, the two singles have made more than three million views on YouTube. He loves being a composer and focused his energy on that in his worst times.
The former player, world champion with Brazil in 2002 and amazed the whole world with his skills looks like he found himself again, an identity privilege that not many players have after retiring. Now he is 40 years old, and it seems his second life is just beginning and might become as successful as the first one.
