In the video she shared on her TikTok page, @rusababe, the young woman said it appears folks who live in the UK only work to settle tax obligations, as taxes take more than half of their monthly earnings.

This situation, coupled with other challenges, has caused many people, especially foreigners living in the country, to become depressed and frustrated, she said, adding that "UK is not for the weak."

"If you want a country that can make you go mad with class, a country that could make you sit in your room to cry, come to the UK...UK is not for the week oo, sister. Before I left Ghana, I didn't have rheumatism, but now I do due to the stress in the UK," she said.
