Adom FM’s Kwame Oboadie says his life took a turn after high school, but his desire to continue his studies motivated him to overcome the obstacles.
They had to work hard to make ends meet as the third of five children raised by their mother, Maame Biamah, in menial occupations.
Afia Amankwa Tamaklo interviewed him about why he sold bread at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle VIP station.
He claims he was previously accepted into the University of Ghana (Legon) for his first degree.
“I had course mates who couldn’t believe their eyes, but I didn’t care since it covered the bills.
“I usually sleep in the station on Fridays, so I can resume my business extremely early the next morning,” he said in the interview
Desperate for time, he sought a transfer from the main Legon campus to the Accra City Campus.
Then his mother died just before he graduated, leaving him heartbroken.
“I took my final test on the same day she was buried in 2013.” I wept so hard because I wanted her to be part of my success story,” he added regretfully.
But he believes that all of these difficulties have made him a stronger and better person.
In fact, he was one of the first people in Accra to sell A 1 bread before he began working at Multimedia.
