A heartwarming old video of Rastafarian student Tyrone Mharghuy opening up on his desire to represent Achimota School at the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) has emerged online.
The TV Africa interview, which evokes joy, was shared by Paa Kwesi Schandorf, the journalist who interviewed Tyrone Marghuy years ago, apparently after the school denied him admission on grounds of his dreadlocks.

The journalist who shared the video captioned it:
"Time flies! Once upon a time, I interviewed Tyrone and his dad on the morning show at TV Africa, where he spoke about joining the NSMQ team at Achimota. About two years down the line, his dream has become a reality. A case of determination and sheer resilience, isn't it? Good luck to him."
