Ghanaians continue to make outstanding waves with their extraordinary feats despite the shared challenge of inadequate financial capital and young Anthony Mensah Dzamefe, is one of many, who have turned their hurdles into medals.
The CEO of Caveman Watches and Timepiece GH, has become a global sensation, notable for his timeless collections.
Prior to owning his own company and producing watches, Anthony Mensah Dzamefe, began life as a Marketing Officer for a hotel in Accra while making media appearances to sell the company’s brand and products.
Mensah Dzamefe would later resign from his job owing to changing circumstances and office administrative policies which he found unfavourable.
He determined he couldn’t make a career working as a Marketing Officer for the hotel and decided to dance to the music of uncertainty.
Despite the obvious hurdles ahead and the expected truncation of monthly income inflow, Anthony Mensah Dzamefe, took the bold decision to quit his 9 to 5 job.
While he resigned his job with a plan, things didn’t unfold as he had expected. The young man was compelled to hustle in the business of selling second hand clothes.
However, fate had something installed for him which began unfolding quickly. And a decision to buy a watch, which he purchased at GHc 50 was the spark that brought his destiny into alignment.
Anthony’s 4-year-old business first began after he bought the watch and posted it on his WhatsApp status.
The adorable piece attracted the interest of a contact, who called to inquire and asked to buy.
Adding a profit margin, he sold the piece and went back to buy more and resell. And from one to two, he sold hundred more of timepieces and birthed his company, TimePiece GH.
His direct work in selling, repairing and servicing watches opened his eyes to the world of watch-making.
Anthony Mensah Dzamefe also came to realization that there is not an African watch brand dominating the industry.
That inspired his urge to start the watch brand Caveman Watches which came into operation in December 2018.
Several months in and the demand has been large both locally and internationally.
Anthony Mensah Dzamefe's philosophy is "know yourself, embrace who you are and accept the fact that the world owes you nothing. That’s how you can brave the odds and make your dreams come true."
He was recently named as the overall Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 and the Emerging Brand of the Year by the Young Achievers Summit 2019.
Meanwhile, following the release of provisional results of candidates who wrote the West African Senior Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 2019, Sarpong Akosua Darkwa, a brilliant school girl has obtained remarkable scores with distinction.
Her brilliance caught the attention of her Member of Parliament who also commented on her efforts.
