Popular Adom FM presenter, Kwame Oboadie, has recalled a turbulent stage in his life when he first moved from Kwahu in the Eastern Region to Ghana's capital, Accra, to seek greener pastures.
Determined to change his fortune for the better, he sold mangoes and saved towards his journey to Accra, he said.
In an interview on Adom TV, the Ghanaian on-air personality established that he had to sleep in a car at a fitting shop with a friend for over a year when he arrived in the capital.
Oboadie recalled writing a letter to his uncle to move and stay with him in Accra before embarking on the journey, albeit, without his uncle's consent.
However, his uncle declined to offer him accommodation when he arrived because he'd not replied to his letter before Kwame Oboadie embarked on the journey, he said.
''When I arrived in Accra, my uncle told me he couldn't accommodate me because he'd not replied to a letter I wrote to him before coming. I didn't have money to return back home. My uncle left me stranded without money and asked me to go back. H sat in a car and left me,'' he recalled.
''I trekked from Kata Hostel at Kwashieman to Abossey Okai where I met some indigenes of Kwahu. I met friends and narrated my situation to them; I didn't want to go back.''
''A friend I met was sleeping in a fitting shop ... after we ate in the evening, he offered me a spot in a car at a fitting shop where he slept. He had already occupied the back seat. We slept in the car for almost a year and half,'' he said.
