A young Ghanaian man has used his lived experience to motivate others after he opened up on how his journey to becoming a renowned barber began.
In a video on TikTok, Frank Obiri Yeboah, the founder of Britain Haircut located in Konongo said his quest to become a barber was not easily achieved as people tried to discourage and even talk him out of it.
"When I started, people used to discourage me. My classmates used to come to where I was working just to laugh at me. I remember that one woman advised me to quit the job because it wasn't lucrative.
Despite the naysaying, Frank said he was determined to make a difference and also prove that barbering is also a lucrative business.
