Ghanaian content creator, Wode Maya has shared his excitement to see his fellow Ghanaians embarking on a road trip from Accra to London which he calls “beautiful”.
Speaking on TV3’s Twitter space with Helen Appiah-Ampofo, the YouTuber mentioned that he has been following the buzz on social media on the issue and would love to put a documentary together for them provided he is given footage.
“I’ve really been following and it was interesting to see Ghanaians going on an adventure like that. I was so impressed and I wish I could do a full story on them; on the whole journey if they actually documented it. I can just get the footage and do a proper documentary for them,” he said in excitement.
According to him, Ghanaians are not super adventurous so he is exhilarated seeing some people take up such a cause.
“I’ve been following and I was so excited to see that happen, especially knowing that it’s coming from Ghanaians because I believe that Ghanaians don’t like adventures like this,” he stated
What put the digital media influencer in utter awe was the fact that these Ghanaians “tried climbing Kilimanjaro” which is the tallest mountain in Africa and is located in Tanzania. Apparently, having experienced how tough it is to go on such an expedition, Wode Maya appreciated their efforts a lot.
He indicated that “To see that they even tried climbing Kilimanjaro… I was on top of Kilimanjaro and all I can say is that I won’t do it again. When I got up there, I asked myself, ‘Who sent me?’ It’s beautiful to see Ghanaians come up with such an initiative. I’ve been following and I can’t wait to meet all of them in person when I return to Ghana.”
Switching the conversation a bit, Wode Maya talks about how absurd it is for Africans to struggle when it comes to touring their own continent.
“It’s ridiculous for an African to struggle to travel within Africa. It’s really not easy travelling within Africa; tickets are expensive,” he highlighted.
