An African superstar has insisted he will not change his lavish lifestyle, regardless of what critics and the media say.

Klopp: Why I Won't Compare African Star With Messi

Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who recently joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund, has often attracted negative attention for his extravagant spending, much like Manchester United's Paul Pogba.

During a recent interview with an English publication, the £56 million (R906 million) striker said he does not pay attention to those questioning his lifestyle, and insisted he will not change his ways.  

"I like who I am and it doesn't matter if other people can't accept that – it goes over my head," the Gabon star told the Daily Mirror.

"As they say, 'you only live once'. It's important to know where you come from and where your roots are – the rest is a big bonus."

Aubaymeyang also explained how he feels he is living his childhood dream.

"When I was a kid, I would go to the stadium to watch my dad Pierre play when he was at Le Havre, Toulouse, Nice and Rouen," he added.

"It was incredible. After his matches, I would play on my own in the living room. I'd mimic the fans and then give interviews just like I do today!

"I am living my childhood dream. I think that is something magnificent for a child like me."

The 28-year-old has made three appearances for Arsenal so far since joining the club in January and has found the back of the net once along the way.
