Ghanaian rapper and businessman, Nhyiraba Kojo Sika, known in real life as Rashid Joseph, has recounted how he used to work as a head porter in Kaneshie in Accra to fend for himself.
According to the rapper, he went through frustrating and exhausting moments as a head porter popularly referred to as kayayo.
During this period of his life, Joseph, who was not famed as Nhyiraba Kojo Sika at the time, significantly suffered under the pressure of challenges from his deprived background.
Despite the adversity, Joseph never gave up on himself as he moved to the city to work to change his poor living condition.
Now, Joseph is a popular rapper known as Nhyiraba Kojo Sika with thriving businesses and a magnificent mansion.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Nhyiraba Kojo Sika recounts how he used to wear his cap to cover his face when he used to work as a male porter in Kaneshie to avoid being seen by his friends.
Nhyiraba Kojo Sika indicated that he did not want his friends to identify him because they could send word back home that he works as a porter in Accra.
''This is how I used to wear my cap when I used to hustle as a kayayo in Kaneshie to prevent being seen by my friends because I didn't want them to send word back home about the kind of work I was doing,'' he revealed.
Rapper Nhyiraba urged the youth to be resilient in the pursuit of their dreams as he reflected on his growth.
''But today, I don't work as a head potter again. So, if you're a youth working as a kayayo or mate, know that it will take a while but it won't be forever, things will change,''
Nhyiraba Kojo advised that when things begin to change for the better, detractors and pessimists would attempt to explain their source of wealth by claiming their riches is a result of rituals, but they should pay less attention to them.
