Like any other school, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has played its part in raising able men and women for the Ghanaian society. Through its vast list of programs offered, it has trained individuals who have contributed immensely to the country’s various sectors.
Education seeks to provide the foundation for individuals to evolve into their true natural selves and in as much as an individual may pursue a particular program in school, this doesn’t necessarily translate to them pursuing a career in that line.
There’ve been many instances where one’s program of choice only helped in understanding that’s not the right field to be in regardless of societal pressures saying otherwise. Many people tend to graduate from school and divert to other fields that are nowhere close to the academic path they pursued all their lives and invested precious time and money in.
We cannot be quick to judge that it was a complete waste of time as that program, although was not the right fit had a role to play and added a form of value, one way or the other because, the path to life isn’t always a straight road and sometimes, one needs to take the wrong paths to finally get on the right path and you have to be appreciative of the journey
In this article, we seek to dive into the academic path of a few of our Ghanaian celebrities who were products of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the programs they studied and see if what they are currently involved in has any connection to these programs;
The first on our list is Sister Derby
She is legally known as Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu. She had her basic education in Accra at Christ the King International School and proceeded to pursue her secondary education in Wesley Girls’ High School. She then gained admission to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where she read Publishing Studies. Deborah is been a TV presenter and is currently a musician and I believe she applies her knowledge from her program of study in a career one way or the other.
Having been born on the 17th of May 1979, Christ Attoh, legally known as Chris Keith Nii Attoh had a part of his basic education at Achimota School and then Accra Academy. He continued to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where he studied Painting and sculpture. Now Chris is an actor and a businessman and has been a TV presenter and one can argue where the painting degree comes in but hey, you still got to appreciate the journey.
Nikkie was born on the 5th of September 1985 and attended DEKS International school in Tema. She is an old student of Holy Child High School and read Visual Arts, She was admitted to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology after secondary school to study Communication Design with a major in Graphic Design. Nikkie is currently an actress and has worked for various production houses. There’s no doubt her acquired degree plays a role in her current career path.
He is legally known as Lukeman Ekow Baidoo. He is a native of Kotokuraba in the Central region and had his secondary education at T.1 Ahmadiyya in Ekumfi. After secondary school, he gained admission to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where he read Quantity Surveying and Construction Economics. He is currently into music and what he does has no connection to the program he pursued in school.
Claudia was born on the 17th of June 1980. She gained admission to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology to study Economics and Law. She is the founder of Glitz Africa Magazine and has had a number of work experiences in the banking sector. There’s no doubt, Claudia, for sure puts her acquired degree to work.
John had his basic education in Accra, Christ the King International School, and attended Achimota School where he studied General Science. After secondary school, he was admitted to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where he pursued a degree in Civil Engineering. John is currently an actor and a businessman and his program of study in school has had little to nothing to do with what he’s currently into.
