Dr. Osei Kwame Despite- CEO of Despite Group of Companies
Dr. Osei Kwame Despite- CEO of Despite Group of Companies Dr. Osei Kwame Despite is a levelheaded businessman with a very good background in music production, he is well traveled and knows the broadcasting industry like the back of his palm.Interestingly, for one who owns a conglomerate of media houses, he is very media-shy. Dr. Osei Kwame Despite is a serial entrepreneur and has had tremendous success in setting up businesses across several industries. Beginnings Born Osei Kwame in 1962 at Agona Wiamoase in the Ashanti region, but affectionately called 'Kwame Despite', he started life as a petty trader, dealing in music cassettes, padlocks, feeding bottles and other merchandise at Dunkwa-Offinso. After years of painful struggle in the village to make it in life, he joined other friends to seek greener pastures in Lagos, Nigeria. He returned home to Ghana in 1983 with millions of other Ghanaian refugees who had been forced to flee Nigeria due to the political tension in the West African country. And guess what? He returned from Nigeria with only a chain-saw machine and a trident cassette player. He started a timber contracting business with the chain-saw machine but fate dealt a cruel hand on him when the machine was crushed by a falling tree on his first business trip. Undeterred, he turned to his cassette selling trade until he resolved to solidify his vision to diversify his business. It is indeed a characteristic of every human to err, but that saying went worthless when Osei Kwame 'Despite' was thoroughly assessed by the Canterbury University and conferred on him a Doctorate Degree of Human Resource on 28th April, 2013. Business mogul and owner of the Despite Group of Companies was elevated to the status of a Doctor by the Canterbury University for his continuous contribution to innovation, provision of job opportunities and relentless promotion of the Ghanaian Culture. The citation which was signed by Archbishop Sir Dr. Paul Hanson, Primate of Africa and Most Rt. Rev. Dr. Prince Kudolo (Archbishop of Ghana) landed the lofty prize into the hands of Doctor Osei Kwame 'Despite' for portraying himself as person millions can emulate in the society. Speaking in an "ambushed" and exclusive interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on PeaceFM's Kokrokoo Morning Show, Mr. Osei Kwame was full of gratitude to God for his current state of well-being considering his lowly beginnings. Asked who Osei Kwame really is, the gentle and unassuming CEO of the DGC described himself as a humble, quiet and a hardworking man, who does his possible best not to direct unnecessary attention to himself and also stay away from trouble. He expressed his appreciation to his family, friends and everyone who in diverse ways played a role in his life. "Let me also laud the efforts of all my untiring workers for their commitment and dedication towards making the Despite Group of Companies a success...I want to advise the youth to persevere, work hard and never give-up...I am very careful dealing with the weak and poor because anything can happen at any moment and situations change," he said. Staff and management of PeaceFM, OkayFM, Hello FM, U2, Neat Foods, Despite Stores and U-TV wish Osei Kwame Despite a HAPPY 50th Birthday celebration. May the good Lord continually protect you and your family and may He shower you with good health, long life and immeasurable divine favour.
