Ghanaian man sells roaster corn in suit and tie
The man identified as Sosu Patrick, earns a living by selling roasted corns on the streets but he does this well decked in a suit, a tie that depicts his national flag and a wide brimmed hat, to match.
According to a Ghanaian celebrity photographer, Kobby Blay, who captured Patrick's savvy street hustle, the 40-year-old vendor is not ashamed of roasting the popular street snacks which he compliments with plantain and coconuts to go with it.
Popularly called SP, Patrick says he does not compromise with hygiene, style and branding as he goes about the trade he has been on for years.
Patrick went further:
“I do this to take care of my family and I am not ashamed of it. I have children who are in school and I have to take care of them.
I have a quite a large farm and will soon complete my house. I don't compromise on health as I don't want my customers to blame me for cholera.”
Accra's best known corn seller also says he hopes to make his trade into a very big and popular brand.
