As a result, the talented beat-maker who trended on social media after he sued CAF for using his beats without his consent transferred his funds to his Fidelity account, but the transfer was unsuccessful.

Determined to make his purchase amid the setbacks, Spiky decided to lodge in a hotel in Ho to ensure that his funds were ready the next day to make his purchase.

Spiky said:

"The first car I bought with my money was a 2003 VW Golf GTI 1.8T. I went to Ho to buy it. It was a very interesting story. There was no Standard Chartered Bank branch in Ho, so I had to transfer the money to my Fidelity account.
The bank didn't complete the transfer, so I had to stay in a hotel (mind you, I didn't have money), so if the transaction hadn't been completed, I would have been stranded in the hotel. But alas, everything went well, a lot of other things happened on the journey back... Lol"
