"The work is difficult, it is not easy, but once you get paid at the end of the month, you will be so happy," he said with smiles.

At the time of writing, the video had gathered over 5,000 views and 92 comments.

Travel abroad if opportunity arises - Expert advises

Counsellor Daniel Fenyi, in sharing his expert opinion on the matter, urged Ghanaians, particularly the youth, to travel abroad if presented with the opportunity.

"I encourage every youth to travel abroad if the opportunity comes their way. It is about your destiny, your dreams and your family. If you stay in Ghana, in the name of patriotism, hunger and unemployment will kill you and your children. If genuine opportunities come your way as a youth, travel out and seek a better life elsewhere"
