A local vendor who sells popular Ghanaian delicacy, Waakye, which is made by cooking rice and beans together, has taken her branding to another level.
In a video that was shared on the Instagram handle of Hiz_Sarpomaah_Official, customers were made to line up orderly in a queue whilst each of them had specific tags.
This unconventional initiative is thought to have been implemented in order to prevent wrongful overtaking by some customers and ensure that the buying and selling process is completely smooth.

What Ghanaians are saying
When the video surfaced on social media, netizens could not hold back their reactions.
Below were some of the interesting comments they shared:
the_hairmasterz who appears to have been at the vendor before said:
I promise, without the number you’re not getting waakye

Doesn't even taste good I stopped buying from them opposite jerrys pub legos Avenue
Meanwhile, Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia mentioned in a previous report that retailers who sell waakye, beans, Kofi brokeman (roasted plantain), trotro, and all you can think of, would start receiving cashless payment.
He explained that Ghana was moving to a cashless society and further indicated that a universal QR code will be launched by the Bank of Ghana to facilitate the new process.

According to him, this would enable all retailers, regardless of what they sell, to receive money via their mobile, not necessarily cash payment.
