In the initial video, Shamo said he came from Tafo-Ahenebronum in the Ashanti Region.

Ibrahim Abass first visited Shamo on the streets with clothes and other items. During the visit, he asked the man to come live with him so he could help him. However, Shamo declined the offer.

In the latest video shared by Ibrahim Abass, Shamo now lives with him, and he is doing well. He added that when Shamo is well, he will speak for everyone to hear or see him.

He showed a clean-shaven Shamo cooking and lifting weights at home to show his well-being.
