A young Ghanaian man has evoked tons of pleasant reactions on social media after a frame emerged of him carrying a pan filled with smoked fish.
According to social media user, Naris Narison, who shared the photo of Yohane Amarh Ashitey proudly carrying the silver bowl stashed with smoked fish, Ashitey is the current regional manager for Huawei.
Naris Narison revealed, along with the humbling photo he shared online, that Ashitey was assisting his birthing mother with her business.
Although this shouldn’t be treated as a big deal because children are expected to support their parents’ enterprises, Narison’s account has erupted with reactions after he shared it online.

Narison also recounted that Ashitey was neither ashamed nor embarrassed by his mother's peasant business.
He added: ''He took it to town and sold it as if it was his job."
Obviously, Ashitey had not forgotten about his humbling start in life and was not going to permit his current thriving state to cloud his sense of judgement about assisting his own mother.
Ashitey's act of humility has inspired many social media users.
