Despite several attempts to land a job, his efforts did not yield a positive result. Presented with an option of relocating from Ghana, Ben heeded the counsel of his brother's wife to travel outside the country to advance his chances of achieving his much desire for a better life.
In an interview with Zionfelix, Ben recounted that he had to sell his taxi to finance his voyage to Italy through the Libyan sea.
