Reportedly, the group approached the company with a proposal requesting sponsorship for their ambitious road trip. However, according to them, the CEO declined to meet with them, let alone entertain the sponsorship idea.

This unexpected response has sparked widespread disappointment and led to a flurry of negative commentary on social media.

Many Ghanaians have expressed their discontent with Kantanka's decision, emphasising that using Kantanka cars for such a high-profile journey could have immensely benefitted the company's image and bolstered the promotion of made-in-Ghana products.

The road trip, which has attracted considerable domestic and international attention, would have served as a prime opportunity for Kantanka to show the reliability and durability of its vehicles on a global stage.
