Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported, Incredible Zigi, born Michael Amofa, has gained international prominence for his wide range of dance steps and ability to create.

Amofa is credited as the creator of the Pilolo and Kupe dance steps as elements in Afrobeats/Azonto, which have been infused in choreographies by internationally acclaimed musicians and dancers, including American singer and dancer, Janet Jackson.

But he did not attain the feat on a silver platter. He had to defy odds and push against his father's original desire to become a doctor.

In a separate story, an American Ghanaian author, Isaac Addae, has notched another academic milestone as he earns a PhD in Business Administration and Management from Morgan State University.
