When quizzed about whether he was the first to ride in a limousine on the streets of Accra, Nelson said he could not confirm that but to him, it signifies that ‘hardwork pays’.

“I don’t know whether my limousine was the first limousine to come to Accra or Ghana,” Nelson told the Graphic Online in an interview.

“But er, its something that when I saw it, I loved it I said oh, this car one day I will buy some, you know and I said if I buy this car to Ghana the people who are doing sports, it will encourage them to work hard because everybody likes beautiful things. It will encourage them especially the children also who will say one day I will buy some. It’s still in very good condition”.
