According to Ghanaslayers.com, the young man who now holds the coveted title, graduated from Mfantsipim in the Central Region and started his legal education at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) in 2013.
In 2017, while doing his internship at Daily Guide upon graduating from GIMPA, Akpene sat for the entrance exam of the Ghana School of Law, passed and was admitted in the same year.
Subsequently, the young man completed his professional law course in 2018, got called to the Bar in 2019 and now works with the Amua-Sekyi & company.

Meanwhile, a 15-year-old Ghanaian, Adom Appiah, who is an author and a philanthropist is using sports as a tool to touch many lives in South Carolina, specifically Spartanburg.
When he was in 7th grade, his teacher urged Adom and his classmates to spend a fraction of the time they spend in class embarking on a social project.
That was the beginning of the journey as the young Ghanaian started this project relentlessly.
