A young Ghanaian man who calls himself J.E. Special and wears suit to hawk 'asaana' on the street has found his own way to turn a so-called blue-collar-job into a white-collar one.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh's Nanaday, J.E. said that he chose to venture into the female-dominated asaana business after doing different jobs that came with myriads of challenges and lesser pay.
"I worked different jobs in the past but they were not paying me as much as my current hawking business does. The first day I started, I was shy but the money gave me courage to continue," he added.

U see is most women say good dos knowing that it's only men's responsibility to make sure they eat.but my little advise to today's slammed gueen is that now that men are selling asaana on the street they should also have better things to do than moving to and fro like snapper which always fetch themselves diseases and death at last.
