Peeps react to reason Ghanaian brand Kantanka Automobile did not feature in Wanderlust's iconic journey

Ghanaians were very disappointed in the lack of local business participation in the history-making journey that has received international recognition.

Kweku Delali Cyril commented:

Man didn’t want to put his brand to that kinda test with so much publicity. The outcome could be dire.

Derek Asa-Akuffo commented:

Not everyone will believe in your dream, and that's okay. They probably regret it, and that's enough. What if they signed on and their car didn't make it, maybe not even for mechanical reasons? Everyone is responsible for their decisions. Anyway, all the best to the Wanderlust team, especially the lady you've made us all proud.

Kwaku Snr commented:

Maybe Kantanka Cars can’t go on such journeys, and that will be the only reason I see to be fit for not joining. Otherwise, they shouldn’t be going on National Television and asking for Ghanaian support.
