Boateng says he speaks Turkish, German, English and Italian, and understands French and Arabic.
In a feature trailing a show about sexy sportsmen, the website of the television network DStv listed Boateng as one of the top five sexiest African sportsmen.
Boateng is a keen singer and dancer, and has said that his singing and dancing idol is Michael Jackson. He enjoys Choreography, and singing. As such Boateng performed a dance routine involving Michael Jackson's trademarked Moonwalk for a packed-out San Siro of 88,000 spectators upon AC Milan celebrating their eighteenth Scudetto, and sang an a cappella live on beIN Sports television to celebrate their eighth birthday.
