In the interview, he said:

"You must bless others when God rewards you. I started from nothing at all. I can still picture myself in the barren wasteland of Ashaiman. I spent the most of my time in Liberia, where neighbors welcome visitors and allow them stay in their houses."

According to Michael Blackson, the school in Nsaba near Swedro is ready to receive applications for the position of principal. The well-known comedian added that the employment includes accommodation in a post on Twitter.

Mr Blackson continued by saying that he made the decision to reduce his wasteful spending and save money for worthwhile and significant projects. The school, he mentioned, is one of such projects.

During the interview, he added that:

"In the United States, men would spend this money in clubs. It costs about $20,000 to rent a portion of a club in Vegas. In a year, it could certainly pay for half of my teachers' salaries. I am cutting down on other things that weren’t necessary and putting that money towards something that is necessary."

The school will be free for all students, he added. Tuition costs would not be paid by students who enrolled at the academy.
