It is interesting how people would spend years in school struggling to get certificates only to realise later that their passion is in something different from what they learned in school.
Popular twin brothers, Emmanuel and Samuel Appiah Gyan graduated Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). The school has been nicknamed by its students as “Kwame Tech”.
Now, instead of securing jobs with their certificates, they chose to be photographers. They started their photography career under a brand called SwagOfAfrica.
Having obtained degrees in Post-Harvest Technology and Landscape Architecture from KNUST, one would have thought that Emmanuel and Samuel Appiah Gyan would have been utilising their knowledge in the field of agriculture and environmental design respectively. However, the young men chose to venture into photography alongside blogging.
It cannot be said that their certificates were useless because somehow, studying at the university broaden their knowledge on certain things which has eventually landed them the opportunity to work for the presidential office.
Anyway, this particular directive leads to a debate on its own. You may share your thoughts later in the comment session below.
Back in school even before they graduated, the duo became popular as a result of a ‘Twinsdntbeg’ brand which metamorphosed into ‘SwagOfAfrica’ which is making waves globally now.
SwagOfAfrica is now the official photographer for the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo and also the official social media managers for the second lady, Mrs. Samira Bawumia, among other top celebrities.
