Three years ago, due to undisclosable reasons, I was jolted into the realisation that I had to succeed much earlier than I’d planned. I realised that if I had to wait for the normal rate of advancement in my industry, I couldn’t pay the bride price for the daughter of the rich man I wanted to marry.

In coming weeks, I plan to feature young Ghanaians doing remarkable things and celebrate them with you.

His company provides mobile financial software solutions to a clientele more elite than the English monarchy. What’s got me going gaga is their latest service; Gift Buddy! Gift Buddy is using technology to revolutionize the way newly weds receive wedding gifts. Their mission is to make sure that both newly wedded and bereaved get all their gifts. All of them.
