Born April 6th to now late Mr. Smart Frimpong (a famous guitarist who used to play with the legendary highlife musician, Abrantie Amakye Dede) and Madam Ogrey at Agogo Asante Akyem, Mr. O.K. Frimpong didn’t find life on a bed of roses from the start. He spent most of his youthful life living with relatives in a house named Kenkey house in Fadama, a Muslim suburb in Accra. He was mostly rotated in terms of feeding between his own parents, uncles and aunties because things were very hard. From such an early age he had made his mind to be the pillar to take his family and the whole of Africa out of abject poverty. He started his lower-level school education at Cosmos Basic School, Lapaz New Market from where he ascended to Aggrey Memorial AME Zion secondary school and then to central University where he got his first tertiary degree.

Aspiring to attain greener pasture he roved to Singapore with a determined mindset of unveiling business prospects but it proved futile. He again ventured to South Africa with a little success of business. This didn’t deter him because he was of the conviction of polishing till you shine and that success does not come on a silver platter.

He again set out to the US where he and his father operated a restaurant for a brief time, left it in his care and went to the UK for further education at Conel College – North London. He got his first ever job which was a voluntary work at Sheltor Charity. As the name implies, it’s a shop that sells various items but gives out the revenue to charity. After only 3 days of work there, the owners decided to make him the manager of the place full time because in those 3 days of work he had been able to triple daily sales and got a solution to their theft problems they had encountered for years. He fixed dummy cctvs in the shop which got the petty thieves thinking everywhere was being monitored and never came back there to steal. Whilst working at the charity shop, he realized what he went through growing up was far better of than what people were facing. From his meagre salary he still decided to buy and ship items door to door for the Osu children’s home. This started his journey of charity.

His gates to success first unlocked when he risked all of his savings and went to China to buy goods for sale in both the UK and Ghana. Business went well enough that after a few years, he was able to establish himself into forex (KLF bureau) which unlatched his conglomerate and his charity called the Smart foundation all named after his father Mr. Kojo Smart Frimpong.

Mr. Charles Ohene Kwame Frimpong believes in making the African dream possible by giving hope, causing positive change and making a difference in peoples’ lives.
