Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong has been in the news all week for the good and bad reasons and as if he cares, the maverick lawmaker is used to that.
After accusing the EC Boss of getting job through sex, he gave a Car to the ADISCO team in the just ended NMSQ.
Hon. Ken Agyapong is certainly not a good communicator and requires an extensive course in communication studies, but he undoubtedly is a shrewd businessman.
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central is widely known to be wealthy and will probably make the short list of rich Ghanaians currently in the country.
The 53 year-old firebrand politician who’s widely considered to have an acerbic tongue, defines success as “how well you place yourself in society to affect people’s lives”.
From a humble beginning selling P.K chewing gum, chocolate bars, blades and buckets in streets around Circle, Ken Agyapong had an opportunity to travel to Germany and U.S in 1984.
The hardworking young Ken worked two jobs – a bakery and gas station, and earned $400 a week (without a green card).

PHOTOS:3 Secrets Of Osei Kwame Despite That Every Young Man Should Learn
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.
