Currently, the gentleman has become so successful that he owns two luxury cars, his own house, and what he describes as a healthy bank account.
The gentleman who is only in his 20s is known to have at least one mansion, a customized Mercedes Benz car, and runs his own ventures, chiefly Forex trading, that generates money for him.

What Ghanaians are saying
Below were some of the thoughts shared by social media users about Kojo's inspirational story.
You can’t have same license numbers for 2 vehicles. Something is not quite true from the pictures.
@kwakutraderKT replied him saying:
It’s not a license plate. He just covered the number with his name. It’s edited just to block the number.. He own the cars I know him
I believe very soon I'll be appreciative to God just as you're Kojo, I believe all my losses in FX will be recover.
