Mr. Kwadwo Asamoah, a Ghanaian man living in Germany, revealed that family members always put pressure on them since they think life is perfect outside the home, which explains why they are unable to make any substantial progress for themselves.
Even if the majority of Ghanaians believe that those outside the country are prosperous and have more money, he asserts that Ghanaians living in Germany and other nations are dying from pressure in their apartments.
He stated the following on Ambassador TV:
“Life in other countries is different from the perception that majority of Ghanaians hold because the pressure we go through alone can kill you”
“There are some Ghanaians in Germany who don’t have even 1 euro and these people are dying because of hunger, stress and pressure”
“I have been in Germany for some years but Kwadwo I can tell you that I don’t have anything at home because the family is not supportive. When you travel and your family is not supportive it can affect all your dreams”
“It is very disheartening that some family members including friends, wives and others are sending our pictures to juju just to charm us. When you send them some money then they will use it to charm you”.
“it is gradually becoming a normal thing to hear that Ghanaians living in Germany and other countries die in their rooms. Sometimes when I hear such news I find it difficult to control my tears but there is nothing we can do about that situation”
“Majority of the people I know including myself have regretted the decision we took. We quit our jobs in Ghana just to travel to other countries to make money but the stress we are going through and the pains are unbearable”
“There are some Ghanaians who want to come back home but they have no money for even plane ticket meanwhile their family believes they have made it in other countries”
