In an interview on SVTV Africa with DJ Nyaami, Theophilus mentioned that it was always a dream to live abroad and took the opportunity to join the Black Stars supporters union to support the team in Brazil.
They were ready to travel out and came with dollars, but I had GHS20. So I stayed in Brazil and met some people who helped and adopted me. Eventually, I got my work permit and began working.”
Moreover, Theophilus indicated that it is easy to get documents in Brazil than in other Western countries. Speaking about work and salary in Brazil, Theophilus mentioned that he makes about GHS6000 as a machine operator.
