Oppong-Nkrumah, who officially announced his decision to contest for a shot at the 2016 elections on Sunday April 5, is finally getting to lace his boots for a political career that has been on the cards for years.
The young broadcaster, and entrepreneur’s decision has been hailed and given a seal of approval across the political divide.
Born on April 5, 1982, to Mr Kwame Oppong Nkrumah, Head of Treasury of the National Investment Bank, and Mrs Felicia Oppong Nkrumah, a Teacher, he hails from Abora Aboase near Saltpond in the Central Region.
He had his secondary education at the Pope John Secondary in Koforidua and studied for his first degree at the University of Cape Coast.
He subsequently enrolled for a Master’s programme in Marketing at the University of Ghana.
He joined JOY FM in 2007 as an intern after being spotted by Multimedia Broadcasting CEO, Mr Kwesi Twum, while making a presentation at the University of Cape Coast.
From very humble beginnings, he’s grown to become a highly respected young achiever.
