The reaction of a Ghanaian content creator after finding out that a thrift clothes seller is a university graduate has gone viral on the internet.

The video that has since gone viral and was sighted by YEN.com.gh on TikTok captured the moment the content creator was taken aback after the thrift clothes seller revealed he was a University of Cape Coast graduate.
Pressed for more answers, the young man explained that he became unemployed after a bank he was working for was declared insolvent.

As a husband and a father, he then opted to sell thrift clothes so he could cater for his family.
Quizzed as to whether he is open to take up another job should he get the offer, the young man responded in the affirmative.
He added that he would prefer to travel abroad rather than be given GH¢10,000 to stay and work in the country.
The emotional video of the young man's hustle had raked in over 500 likes and 17 comments at the time of writing the report.

YEN.com.gh reached to the content creator, Mahamuda Halidu popularly known as big cedi where he revealed that no individual has reached out to him with the aim of providing a job offer to the UCC graduate.
He added that his ambition for interviewing hawkers most often was premised on his desire to shed light on the plight and hustle of Ghanaians.
"I aim to shed light on the untold struggles and pain of ordinary Ghanaians, giving them a platform to share their experiences and fostering understanding and empathy in the broader community.
I believe that storytelling has the power to create positive change and ignite conversations about social issues".
