My name is Nana King. I am a writer and a film maker. Living in California with my wife and family. 22 years ago I bought a piece of land at Aplaku, just after the Weija barrier off the Winneba road. It was on a perfect spot. On a hill overlooking the whole city with the ocean in sight. It was the best spot anyone can dream of. I wanted to start building right away. But my wife was not interested.
She’s heard too many horror stories about family and friends just duping people overseas of their hard earned money. People have been known to commit suicide after finding out what they thought was their house in pictures was not theirs at all.
I contacted an architect friend my wife knew who took $7000 for the construction of a wall around the plot and a design for a house. It didn’t take long before she found out this guy took twice the amount for the job. She has been vindicated “I told you they are all the same. No I am not doing this, let find an already made house and buy. The project came to a standstill for over ten years.
The land wouldn’t survive in present times. It’s a blessing we came back to it after that many years. The walled plot just sat there and became a forest until God gave us Mr Omari. Chris has his own businesses and is married to my wife’s cousin. He said “don’t worry I will manage the project for you. He was able to calm my wife’s fears and she trusted him.
