Businesses Owned By Dr Osei Kwame Despite

Sharing is Caring

Dr Osei Kwame Despite who is popularly known as Despite is regarded as one of the richest personalities in Ghana is one of my great role models. I am publishing this post because the of the youth who always have a doubt that hard work pays. But I can assure you that hard work really pays. Note hard work is relative.

The level-headed businessman was born on 2nd February 1962 at Agona Wiamoase in the Ashanti Region.

Kwame Despite is one of the most successful and richest business moguls in Ghana.

He started little as a petty trader, dealing in music cassettes, padlocks, baby feeding bottles and other merchandise at Dunkwa-Offinso.

After years of struggles in the village to make it in life, he joined some friends to seek greener pastures in Lagos, Nigeria.

Unfortunately for him, he has to return to Ghana in 1983 as part of the 1 million undocumented Ghanaians who were expelled by the Nigerian government aka. Ghana must go.

Upon his return, he started a timber contracting business but failed miserably as his trip into the forest was his last, the timber fell and completely destroyed his chain-saw machine.

That didn’t stop him, he ventured into the music business with Despite Stores, marketing and distributing audio cassettes all over Ghana.

That was his real taste of success and has over the years built Despite Stores into the Despite Group of Companies, one of the biggest conglomerates in the country.
