Playwright and Chief Executive Officer of Roverman Production, Uncle Ebo Whyte in his bid to encourage Ghanaian youths not to give up has narrated how he struggled and sold bread for 3 years in the streets of Accra.
Uncle Ebo Whyte in an interview with News-One disclosed;
“I used to sell bread on my head. These days, people who sell bread sell it with a bit of swag. But in my time it was that round wooden thing and you stuck the bread on one after the other and you tied with flour sack to hold it. I did that for three years to help take care of myself in secondary school.
God has been good to me. I don’t think anybody gave me a chance that I will be where I am today. And that is why I am happy to tell my story. Ghana is hard for particularly if you are a young person looking to the future. You can easily get discouraged but then there are stories like mine where without any big man to help me and connection but with faith in God and dependence on God, somehow opens door here and there. I don’t come from a rich home”.
He concluded by encouraging the youths not to give up on their hustles because it will pay off one day.
“Don’t give up. Just continue working hard and serve well. Also, continue having integrity and being humble. Your time will come. It is God who raises people. I know boys in Nima who train harder than Lionel Messi, but they will never come near him. So, if Messi says he trains hard, I say he should come to Nima. It is God’s favour. It’s God who decides that for whatever reason, He has decided to pick you and make you a big name. That is why we should be humble no matter where God has put us because yes you work hard but He gave you the grace to work hard”, he advised.
