Michael Blankson, a comedian and actor from Ghana with a US base, has been seen hawking goods on the streets of Accra, Ghana, in an effort to draw attention to the country’s rising food prices.
In the now-viral video, the Hollywood actress is seen buying a tray of groundnuts from a woman and selling them to onlookers.
He had already bemoaned in a string of tweets how expensive living was in Ghana in comparison to the United States.
The actor from Coming to America will return to Ghana this year after seeing the daily craziness of street vendors there in 2020.
Strangely, he was able to sell some of the groundnuts to passing drivers who enjoyed his company.
