I thought it would be funny if one of the collectors had my face. I didn't think anyone would buy it, so I set the initial price at 3 dollars, on purpose so no one would buy it. The first upload at the end of December only dared to promote 4 days ago," he explained.

Ghozali is not only a lucky person, but is persistent and consistent. Apart from taking selfies with up to 932 photos, he also likes to compete, one of which is a logo making competition.
