''I didn't attend school and couldn't also learn a skill. I live and serve my brother to acquire the craft from him. I was stationed somewhere in Accra New Town, but they sacked us.
''I've been seeking for a spot to station my belongings and work since then. I have a wife and children for whom I must provide. My children are in school, and I want them to be famous people like [the late former Ghanaian president] Jerry John Rawlings, [former US presidents] Bill Clinton and George Bush. I don't want them to suffer like I am suffering,'' he said.

Ansah, who revealed his family lives in Bekwai in Ghana's Ashanti Region, disclosed he's been sleeping on the street since he relocated to Accar in 2014. He said he sends the money he makes from his business to his family.
