Nana Kwame revealed that when he first settled in Ghana, a local chief gave him a piece of land to start farming on until they eventually sold off parts of the land. Luckily, he could keep the piece of land on which he farmed.

Nana Kwame added that his wife liked the piece of land, so they went to see the chief, Nii Okai, for the paperwork for the four plots of land. He asserted that he was made to pay about $139 for each plot of land back in 1998.

After buying the land, he planned to transform it into a transport yard, so he went into the transportation business by driving big trucks, which earned him about GH₵1,400 weekly.
