The self-acclaimed Queen of comedy and media personality, Afia Schwarzenegger has revealed that her sojourn abroad (South Africa) was not as rosy as some people think it was; it got to a time she sold Waakye to survive.
According to Afia Schwarzenegger, before she traveled to South Africa, she used to sell second-hand clothes, curtains, and table clothes after she moved from the late Veep, Aliu Mahama’s house to stay with her mother in Kumasi at the age of six.
From there, she started selling birthday and love cards at Adum in Kumasi to raise money to fund her education.
But she finally decided to travel outside to seek greener pastures and after a while, she landed in South Africa.
Her first job in South Africa was to wash utensils for a Ghanaian who owns a restaurant there. She also worked for an Indian owned restaurant by washing utensils after she left the Ghanaian restaurant.
Later, she set up her own restaurant and sold Banku to the Ghanaians around. She later moved to sell Waakye because that was more profitable.
Finally, she decided to move back to Ghana where she got lucky and played the role of Afia Schwarzenegger in Delay’s popular Television show “Afia Schwarzenegger” around 2010-2011.
