- A lady who travelled to Canada does not have a place to sleep except for hotels, which she has to pay for
- A friend promised to temporarily host her until she found a place, but the friend did not show up at the airport or answer her calls
- The lady, therefore, sent a message to social media influencer Nana Tea to help her secure a place in Canada since the hotel fares were eating into her budget
A lady who left Ghana for Canada has been left stranded after the person who promised to host her for a while disappointed her.
The international student said her friend, who had promised her a temporary place to lodge, was not answering her calls after she got to an airport in Canada.
Social media influencer James Annor Tetteh, popularly known as Nana Tea, shared a screenshot of the inbox message the lady sent to him asking for help.
"I came to Canada as an international student. A friend promised me a stay at her end upon arrival so that I can take time to look for accommodation. I got to the airport, and she refused to pick up my calls. I am in a hotel, but the cost is too much. Please can you post it on your page if I can get help with accommodation?"

In his caption to the screenshot, Nana Tea lamented that this is becoming rampant since he had received similar distressed messages in previous months.
"This is the fifth time I have gotten this type of case in less than three months. Please, those friends promising their friends a short stay, and when they get there, they won't answer their phones or switch off their phones, should kindly stop it. You put these people through a lot," Nana Tea said.
