@akyeasammy: I never write for your tweet before, but Charley I feel it’s a smart move, just don’t retire totally just stay on the low and invest in the right people. Retiring at your peak is always a smart move man.

@Atopa_Gangster· Nooooo.

@GnarlyEbb: I knew this already is about to go down Ghana.
