The successful actor added that after his years of homelessness, he relocated to a house owned by a Ghanaian man overseas with his friends, who were also from Kumasi.

From there, he got a recommendation for Concert Party, the entertainment show that started his acting career.

I lost both parents and moved from the Ashanti region to Accra. When I came to Accra, I had nowhere to sleep. I slept on empty boxes at New Town for over seven years until my friends from Kumasi and i were privileged to get a house of Ghanaian overseas to lodge.
