He told YEN.com.gh's entertainment team the expenditure in maintaining his 14 cars, especially the Mercedes-Benz models.

"Maintainance is not easy, especially for Benz cars, particularly the one with ballon shocks. And if it's 4matic, that one is crazy expensive. Plus, you won't get genuine parts like the shocks to buy in Ghana."
"I had one V12 and one V8 biturbo. I can use two hours to get to Kumasi with that one. The shocks started worrying me, and I couldn't get some to buy in Ghana. So I had to sell them off."
