"People should stop saying that they will only go to Ghana if they’re paid certain amount. The question is what value can you bring to a business in Ghana to pay you that much. If you don’t have no value you don’t deserve nothing."

"People don't understand when they say abroad is hard or difficult. To be honest, in GH,we not working but just pretending that we working. The kind of job or work in abroad is not that easy kuraa. U have to be on your feet for 8-12 hrs depending if u doing overtime. In GH,even construction job,they rest when they tired but u cannot do that unless break time. So abroad is not easy kuraa ."
