“One wish I’d want to have for my 74th birthday is to see myself on a billboard as a brand ambassador. I wouldn’t want to die before I am mounted on a billboard, where I wouldn’t see what is being done for me. I’m prepared to be a brand ambassador for your products. Use me whiles I’m alive and not when I’m dead and gone,” he appealed to brands in a viral video.”
Earlier, Fred Amugi publicly disclosed his 74th birthday wish, which is, to be captured on a billboard, advertising for brands before he dies.

The actor who was emotional while talking about receiving his flowers before his demise stated “one wish I would love to have for my 74th birthday is to see myself on billboards as a brand ambassador. I wouldn’t want to die before I’m mounted on billboards when I wouldn’t see what corporate Ghana did for me.”
“So, corporate Ghana, here I am, I’m prepared to be a brand ambassador for your products. Use me when I’m alive, not when I am dead and gone,” he said.
