“I was going to keep it simple but I’ve got a lot on my mind! I just feel I need to vent out! I need to talk to someone, anyone! My heart is heavy! It’s my birthday but I don’t know what I’m celebrating! I cried my eyes out this morning. I’m just a young man trying to be successful in this life! Take care of my son and my responsibilities. I’m not in competition with anyone! Anyone who knows me, knows how pure and genuine I am! That’s how my mom raised me. In 2018 I managed to start a car rental company. Things were good until Covid hit. Then business dipped for like 2 yrs. Sold the cars and decided to invest in a night club in Ghana hoping to strike gold once again. But things didn’t work out as they should, or maybe not just yet! Friends and family didn’t support me much.”
