He has dressed up as a rock to film cocoa smugglers along Ghana's western border, has tackled sex trade and corruption in the Ghanaian judiciary, child adoption, abuse and trafficking, illegal gold mining, and trafficking in albino body parts, among other issues. In Ghana, he is a superhero, the modern day crime fighter who wears facemasks and wigs in public to protect his identity.
