Though it is an issue of concern to government and citizens, hawkers could ‘care less’ once they are earning money. Da Hammer is confident that vendors of his product; A1 Bread will soon be provided with alternative means of selling to ensure they don’t add to the menace of hawking. Da Hammer who is the Vice President of A1 bakery revealed that the street vendors earn more than 100 cedis per day, a trade which makes it easier for one to get his own car through hard work. Hammer who recently joined the bread business has groomed some of the best Ghanaian Hip Hop or Hiplife artists, including Obrafour, Tinny, Kwaw Kese, Sarkodie, Ayigbe Edem, and others.

A true investment bank and asset manager bank, like Databank, which is only licensed by the SEC and not the BoG, cannot do what a universal bank does. So why bring Databank into a different set of regulated companies?! It is a totally different business model with a different set of natural competitors.
