Head of sports at Despite Media, Dan Kwaku Yeboah, has disclosed that he sold newspapers to finance his education in senior high school.
At Swedru Senior High School, where he studied Agricultural Science, he lived under shabby conditions in a single room with his senior brother and sometimes survived a whole day on a meal.
In a YouTube video on his Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV, seen by YEN.com.gh, Yeboah disclosed that he lived predominantly with his senior brother because he was sacked from his father's house.
