UK-based Ghanaian Collins Owusu has announced that after his first few weeks abroad, he has lived in the past with some regrets.
Speaking to DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Collins stated that he was employed and had a comfortable life on a salary of 16,000 cedis before leaving Ghana.
Collins said he received an invitation from a relative and decided to travel, but upon arrival found that London was overrated.
“People who knew me from my job asked why I left because I was fine in Ghana. When I got here I cried and regretted it. I wanted to go back but couldn’t find 2000 pounds so I stayed. At the time, I was making about 16 to 20,000 Ghana cedis in a month, including my part-time work. I didn’t need to come here, ”he revealed.
“I even wanted my girlfriend to come here, but she refused and she broke up with me, which made me stay. But I’m grateful for the breakup because if I had gone back the breakup would have happened anyway, ”he added.
Collins currently owns a shop on the outskirts of Birmingham. He is also involved in the export of second-hand clothing to several African countries, including Ghana.
