Wode Maya helped me get my first payout from YouTube of about $20,000 – Dr Likee


Ghanaian actor and skit maker Ebenezer Akwasi Antwi, better known as Dr Likee, has shared how he received his first payout from his YouTube skits with the assistance of fellow YouTuber Wode Maya.

In a clip from an interview with Emelia Brobbey making the rounds on social media, Dr Likee shared that his first YouTube video brought in an impressive amount of about $20,000, equivalent to GH¢304,000.

Narrating his experience, Dr Likee recounted how Wode Maya had sent him a document to take to the bank.

He said he didn’t fully understand the contents of the document and was shocked when he was handed around $20,000 in cash.

“Wode Maya called me and said he had sent me a document through WhatsApp to take to the bank.

“I didn’t even understand the document or what it was about. The moment I showed it to one of the staff at the bank, he asked me to sit down. Then I saw him counting out dollar notes for me. I wondered what I had done, after which, he put the money in an envelope and gave it to me.

“I was shocked at first because I didn’t know why he had given me the money, I even thought it was a trap. By the time I got home and counted the money, it was in the region of $20,000,” he narrated.

The actor expressed his deep gratitude to fellow Ghanaian YouTuber Wode Maya, who was instrumental in guiding him on how to leverage social media to enhance his career.

“That was when I called Wode Maya to thank him. He advised me not to listen to messages from people discouraging me and to focus on making skits, that if I do it well, it will be profitable for me,” he said.
