Tears Flow: Wode Maya Gets Emotional After Remembering His Deceased Father’s Contribution To His Success On Live TV



Wode Maya has carved a niche for himself in the era of the new media and technology.

Born Berthold Kobby Winkler Ackon, the Ghanaian YouTuber is among the most followed YouTubers in Africa.

He revealed in an interview with Kafui Dey on GTV that his late father had a hand in his success.


“My dad has been very instrumental in my success as a YouTuber. Everything I have done so far was his idea. I remember how he gave me his car to go shoot the video where I spoke about how China is taking advantage of Africa.

“It was after I shot that particular video that my dad called me ‘Ghana baby’. Prior to that, he had never called me by that name before. From that, I can confidently say that my father gave me his blessings to do what I am doing before he died,” he revealed.

Maya shed tears in the course of the interview after he recalled his father’s words of encouragement and his favourite hymn.


“I also get emotional when I sing that hymn,’will you anchor hold in the storms of life’ because that was the song my dad used to sing to us when we were challenged and when things got good, he sang ‘daa n’asi’ to remind us to always give thanks to God,” he recounted.
