Popular Ghanaian YouTuber, Berthold Kobby Winkler Ackon aka Wode Maya, was in tears during an interview.
He shed tears while recalling the memories of his late dad in an interview with Kafui Dey on GTV on Friday, July 8, 2022.
Wode Maya talked about how his father contributed to his success as a YouTuber when he decided to change the negative narrative of Africa.
“My dad has been very instrumental in my success as a YouTuber. Everything I have done so far was his idea. I remember how he gave me his car to go shoot the video where I spoke about how China is taking advantage of Africa.
“It was after I shot that particular video that my dad called me ‘Ghana baby’. Prior to that, he had never called me by that name before. From that, I can confidently say that my father gave me his blessings to do what I am doing before he died,” he stated.
Wode Maya broke down when he remembered his father’s words of encouragement and his favourite hymn.
“I also get emotional when I sing that hymn, ’will you anchor hold in the storms of life’ because that was the song my dad used to sing to us when we were challenged and when things got good, he sang ‘daa n’asi’ to remind us to always give thanks to God,” he recalled.
