Born in a village called Agona, Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region in Ghana, Despite began life as a petty trader selling all sorts of merchandise including; music cassettes, padlocks, feeding bottles, and other merchandise at Dunkwa Offinso. His family background never stopped him from doing something for himself.
For many young entrepreneurs who may identify with him, this must be a wake-up call- your success must not be limited by your place of birth. It is a blessing to have wealthy parents but the unavailability of such parents should not become a deterrent in your own pursuits to build an enterprise. In his own words during a rare recent interview, Despite said, “though I had dreams, I never knew, I will get this far but God has made all things possible.”
KWAME DESPITE WENT BANKRUPT IN 1983
Only the strong-minded few are able to turn their lives around after a major setback such as losing all their investment, and Osei Kwame is amongst them. In 1983, the Nigerian government deported millions of Ghanaians living then in Nigeria, Kwame Despite who was also then living in Nigeria was forced to return to the country and he returned with only, a chain-saw machine and a trident cassette player to start all over.
A HUMBLE SOLDIER
For anyone to achieve this feat of success, it will be quite easy for a bit of arrogance and superiority complex to creep in but not Osei Kwame. In his recent interview he granted Kwame Sefa Kai , Despite attributed his success to the efforts of his dedicated untiring staff and Almighty God. He said to the host, “ Let me laud the efforts of all my untiring workers for their commitment and dedication towards making the Despite Group of Companies a success.”
Despite, later advised the youth to persevere, work hard and never give up. The life experience of Osei Kwame should be a guiding principle for many today; that success is a journey and until the journey is completed, one should never give up in life.
5 Kinds Of Men You Should Never Take Home To Your Parents
You love your parents, right? Well then, heed our words and do not bring these 5 guys home to meet the family.
Any dude older than your dad: This screams of daddy-issues. Either that, or your parents will think you’re a gold digger. Do you really want them thinking either of those things about you? We didn’t think so.
An adrenalin junkie: Your parents won’t be impressed by a guy who wants to take you BASE-jumping or really to do any other dangerous activity.
A drug dealer: What are you thinking? This guy will make your loving parents lie awake at night wondering how he is going to hurt their baby or get you arrested.
A man-whore: Along with the porn star, this is a fella you want to avoid. Your folks will totally be able to tell what kind of man he is (particularly if he hits on your mom)
And finally, there’s the Tattoo Guy: But he’s not just any old Tattoo Guy. He’s a modified, horn-possessing, ear-gauging, spike-implanting creature who’s guaranteed to send your folks into cardiac arrest.
