Tributes to Eshun quickly appeared on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, including from the Asante Kotoko Sporting Club, for whom he once played.

The club said it was "saddened by the news of the passing of our 1990 FA CUP winner, 1990 CAF Champions League semifinalist and ex Black Stars [skillful] winger ,Robert Eshun."
