Wode Maya, a recognised Ghanaian Youtuber, told TV3 New Day that people should focus on his contributions to society instead of how he dresses.
Wode Maya mentions that he is doing his part to promote the country, but people concentrate on this appearance.
“I have over 100 people in Kumasi that are going for free education because of me. I have university students for that I pay their fees. I paid a lot of school fees in January.
“I do things that really matter. It’s not about physical appearance. People are telling me that I’m wearing slippers. Even when i was in the village, I never had slippers.”
Additionally, Wode Maya narrated an incident which reinforced his decision to dress down. He had the opportunity to meet a millionaire for the first time during his stay in China. Unfortunately, bypassed the rich man at the gate because he was dressed casually in a shirt and shorts. Instead, he went inside to fawn over his employees (managers) because they were decked in suits.
“I don’t want to look rich. I want to create wealth. I want to impact people’s lives. You can talk as much as you want, but I’m just doing my thing. I’m not seeing anyone,” Wode Maya concluded.
