“For drink whisky is not my favourite drink, for brandy I like Cognac but I am slowing down on that. Before it was either Star or Guilder from Kumasi but now I’ve fallen victim of Accra Club (Club Beer) very cold and with a touch of Sprite.”

“I do my own mixes,” he added jokingly.

We all know people who like this Club and Sprite mixture a lot. Well if you do it means you have something in common with Ghana’s former president John Kufuor.

On his favourite meal he said, “before I used to like fufu but now I have come to the point where it’s just a bit of rice or ‘pona’ yam.”
