In an interview the richest Youtuber in Ghana said;
“It all started when I got tired of how Chinese people see me as a Black man coming from Africa,” “They thought that nothing good comes from Africa; Africa is a warzone area so I decided to take this upon myself to change the narratives. So I decided to quit my job. I’m an aeronautical engineer. I decided to quit my job, go out there and promote Africa in my own way as a black man telling the African story.”
“That is where I listened to my dad and decided to talk about the Africa-China relationship, and from there, my whole YouTube channel escalated. I mean, I thank my mom for supporting my dream but I also thank my dad for giving me that idea to become who I am right now.”
“Digital content creation is something very lucrative, it’s something I think it’s worth more than being an engineer, being a doctor, being a pilot,” he said. “People tell me to go and look for a job. ‘Why are you in front of the camera?’ I just wanna tell people out there that I can literally employ you, let you stay in your room, and then pay you every month.”
“…Our people here are signing contracts that will benefit their pockets so China has seen that and they are going to feed you with money because money is not the problem in china so they are gonna pump in money for which they know that if they are giving you 1 billion dollars, at the end of the day, they are going to earn 5 billion dollars, so they don’t care.
“It’s about time the leaders in Africa will think twice and say that we are gonna sign deals that will benefit the people of the continent but not our pockets…If we don’t take care, they [China] will soon colonize the continent.”
Wode Maya’s videos usually start with AIYA MAYA, AIYA WODE MAYA, which means “oh my god” in the northeastern Chinese dialect, and with the unstoppable rise of digital content creation in today’s world, Wode Maya is so proud of choosing that path.
