A gentleman from America who visited Ghana was captured in a video as he was on a radio station in the US seriously arguing that Accra was cleaner than New York.
The man appeared extremely impressed by what he saw in Ghana that he was proud bragging about the country to the American world.
In his own words:
"I've been to a lot of places. Ghana was the first, for the sake of a better term, 'developing country' where, literally the people selling fruit and food on the street was the cleanest...was cleaner than New York.
"We drove from Accra all the way to Cape Coast and I didn't see any trash. We stopped at a rest stop with a lady and the two kids cleaning the join making sure everything was clean. The rest stop was cleaner than what we see here."
See the video below:
The video stirred mixed reactions when it hit social media.
DoN BabsKing sought to made it clear that the cleanliness the man experienced was not in every part of Ghana:
Buh not everywhere in Ghana is dirty though.Y'all live in slums and ghettos dats why lol
Kasoa _kanye_West made a hilarious joke to the man making the argument:

Unmesswithable took the chance to hit back at the man who made the joke about Korle:

The gentleman making the passionate statements was not the only foreigner recounting his experience in Ghana.
