 Highlife legend Amakye Dede has revealed that his experiences in  his early years in Nigeria inspired his popular song "To be a man na wah". Speaking on 

 Joy FM, the multi-award winning artiste said  he traveled to Africa's most populous country in his youth to make a living. 

 Amakye Dede explained that life there was not easy and apart from doing odd jobs, he was part of a group that played in hotels to earn money. 

 He claimed that  Nigeria expelled Ghanaians from their country at that time. 

 According to him, he and the band performed at the hotel one night. 

 But when they woke up the next morning, about 80 hotels, including the ones where they played, had burned down. 

 He noticed that the fire had also destroyed their tools. 

 The singer added that one night he heard a knock on his door and was shocked to see a Ghanaian who had been stabbed with a glass and was bleeding profusely. 

 This and many others, said Amakye Dede, influenced their decision to move back to Ghana, albeit empty-handed, adding that "you had to run for your lives". 

 He claimed that as he says in the song To be a man na wah, Nigeria taught him that  being a man and making a living is not easy. 

 "There are many challenges  in the world that man faces," he added.
