YEN.com.gh earlier reported that, though many consider selling coconut as menial work, Kweku Frimpong aka Obolo has made gains after 29 years of selling coconut at Tema in the Greater Accra Region.
The father of four was introduced to the business by a friend after he moved to Tema and now travels to Agona Swedru in the Central Region to make a bulk purchase and returns to sell the load at his base in Tema.
In an interview with DJ Nyaami of SVTV Africa, Frimpong disclosed that he has been selling for 29 years since he was introduced to the business in 1992.
