He added that he does not enjoy being on the frontline when it comes to works in his hometown because they believe that when you become a big man from a community like that, people start to “put eyes” on you.
Maya said he has put his brother in charge to be taking care of projects in his hometown instead as it appears he doesn’t want to be on the radar of ill-minded people.
The young man also revealed in the interview that there have been several occasions he was not allowed entry into some places due to the fact that he likes to wear slippers to feel connected to his background as a "village boy".
On how he became Ghana’s biggest Youtuber, Wode Maya said he started his YouTube channel because he wanted to do something beyond the classroom, so he researched things he could do to make extra money and that was when YouTube came to mind.
He said the reason behind interviewing influential men and women in various countries is because he knows Africans look down on themselves, but seeing and hearing one of their own talking about how they made it will motivate the rest of them to turn things around for themselves.
