"Me I don't care oo, because me, I won't sleep in the heat. They say now the dumsor is your local, is it's a localised fault or something like that, yes, na we dey do am, na we dey caused am. Everybody will sleep in darkness today," he said while laughing.

Ghana is currently facing challenges in its energy sector, which has occasioned the return of Dumsor, an intermittent power supply.

While the government claims the situation has been resolved, citizens' personal experiences suggest otherwise, as they continue to reel in heat due to the power cuts.

Netizens hilariously react to the young man's claims.

Netizens who came across the young man's video reacted with funny comments.

The video posted on TikTok by @ghfishman had raked in close to 20k likes and over 2k comments in less than 24hrs, as of the time of writing this report.
