- In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, the Degree barber disclosed why he chose to study brands and communication at UPSA
The chief executive officer of Reflect Ghana, Godwin Kofi Tetteh, has inspired many Ghanaians with his success story as he graduated with a Master's Degree in Brands and Communication from the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) on Friday, October 20, 2023.
The professional barber with two branches in Accra has gone viral after giving his lecturers, course mates and friends haircuts during his graduation ceremony.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Godwin Kofi Tetteh said that every CEO should always pursue new courses to promote their business.
I decided to cut my lecturer on my graduation to bridge the gap between white Color and menial jobs. If you know the Degreebarber, you will understand that I have always advocated pursuing one’s passion but never undermining education.
I do not believe education is an end in itself, as many people do, but rather a tool to pursue any career journey one is involved in.
So yes, pushing and promoting student entrepreneurship is another reason for doing that haircut. I believe if every student has that mindset of creating jobs rather than looking for jobs, our unemployment problems in Ghana will be reduced drastically
The Degree Barber, as he is popularly called, shared the video on social media with this caption;
One is a Barber, and the other is a DJ. They both graduated with Masters in Brands and communication studies from UPSA today. Here they are doing what they love most. If they say, you can’t, ask them why not.
