Nana Aba asked JJ how it feels like to be 73, to which the former president replied, "it feels really great but it could have been much better."

The experienced TV presenter did not allow that statement to slide without any clarification and thus, she quickly asked JJ what could have made his 73rd birthday better.

Rawlings, who is known to be plain and transparent with his opinions and thoughts revealed that he was struggling in body due to the fact that he did not take exercising very seriously when he was much younger.
