One young man from Ghana called Kofi Avinu has defied odds to shun a career in international diplomacy to become open a shop that sells second-hand clothing.
A short documentary made on the Kofi's story was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of Joy 99.7 FM in which the young entrepreneur described what motivated him to make the great move, among other things.
Kofi indicated that he obtained a masters degree in international relations but has chosen to abandon the path it leads, which is international diplomacy to pursue what his heart desires.
According to the young ambitious man whose shop is reportedly located around the American House at East Legon, his passion is to see people wear good clothes.
The young man went further to explain that he does not like the idea that most people prefer to buy brand new clothes that are expensive when there are cheaper alternatives that serve the same purpose and even last longer.
"It just makes more sense for people to spend less on clothes that would take more time to wear out than to go buy something very expensive that would take a very short time," Kofi Avinu whose company does home deliveries said
In other news, an unnamed middle-aged man from Ghana has been captured in a viral video passionately washing his wife's underpants and teaching the public how it's done.
This is not a common observation in average Ghanaian homes as washing is still regarded as chores that are expected of women, although that is changing in recent times.
It is almost unbelievable that a man would transcend the point of simply washing dresses in the house to washing the underpants of his wife.
