The driven man believes intimated that he has been living purposefully and creating positive habits.
Asogonnde shared that he arrived at the decision to open Eben bar knowing that it is practically impossible to go anywhere in Accra for a fun night without witnessing drinking and smoking.
John said his bar will serve well-crafted cocktails and a premium glass of wine accompanied by entertainment, delicious food options, games nights, karaoke, movies and other activities.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, John opened up about the major factors that made the decision to quit drinking and smoking easy.
He said: "The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, a deep conviction, strong willpower, discipline and sacrificing certain relationships for the greater good helped me".

"I lost quality time with my family. Although we're now reconnected, the void has been created. Also, I lost so many opportunities and most importantly my focus/ambition", he added.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Sugar Tone was one of the prominent music producers in the early to mid-2000s producing some of the biggest hits of the time.
Among the songs he produced were Bandana's (now Shatta Wale) Moko Ho, Daseebre Gyamenah's Settei, Reggie Zippy's Virgin and For Sale, and many more.
For someone with such a profile, one would think Sugar Tone will be living a very decent life even after going off the radar.
But that has not been the case for Sugar Tone who was also known as ST. For him, life has been tough and unpleasant.
A video has popped up on social media showing the veteran music producer is living like a destitute.
