Ghanaian YouTuber and influencer, Wode Maya, known for his engaging content and insightful vlogs, has extended an olive branch towards Kantanka, the Ghanaian automaker, after a past incident that raised eyebrows.
In an affirmation of his forgiving spirit, Wode Maya has expressed that he genuinely accepted the CEO’s apology, considering the matter a thing of the past.
“It’s genuinely in the past now. We all make mistakes and learn from them. I don’t believe in holding onto this for an extended period. We’ve moved beyond that,” Wode Maya conveyed.
To underscore the sincerity of his acceptance, Wode Maya recounted how he had shared an image of a car produced by Kantanka on his Facebook page even before the apology was issued.
“Even before he apologized, I saw one of their cars they posted on Facebook and I reposted it for people to check it out. I actually don’t have anything against them as it stands right now. Since he apologized, there’s no need to hold this back,” he disclosed.
When asked whether maybe their behaviour towards him in the past could be justified by the fact that they get ridiculed by people for their products, the former engineer pointed out that that should not be an excuse but rather, a platform to prove all haters wrong.
“I don’t think you need to treat people this way because of what the general public thinks about your products. This is a platform to prove them wrong. I believe I shouldn’t be a scapegoat and no one should just because they are laughing at your products. I don’t think it’s the right thing to do. As a business person, you have to take advantage of every opportunity you get in order to get your brand out there,” he stated.
He continued, “First of all, that’s why you have a research team to know the person who is coming to profile your company; get to know what they do and who they are before you say ‘No’ to them. I don’t think people laughing at your products should give you the opportunity to say ‘No’ to a chance like this because when we were coming, it was for free and the platform that we had could have helped the company.”
