On Monday June 5,  he explained that he had encountered lots of challenges while many people had discouraged him but his girlfriend “supports my business”.

Narrating his story to ClassFM, he revealed that he had been in the business for eight years, choosing to sell bread because he had realised Kumasi lacked properly branded bread for consumers.

Mr Boateng recounted how he started the business with GHS 1,470 – a loan his mum secured for him for the purpose of producing and selling bread.

According to him, initially he would end up burning several loaves because he didn't know how to bake bread.

He however attributed his success to his determination and perseverance, saying he had managed to put up a big bakery in the Ashanti Region with 200 employees and 21 vans for supplying bread to various locations.
