The Board Chairman of Gensar Energy, Nana Osae Nyampong, has over 33 years’ experience as an entrepreneur in diverse industries, including procurement and logistics, real estate and trucking.

Although the 70-year-old Kamenahene of the Akwamu Traditional Area has worked hard to achieve all his successes, he attributes his training from Adisadel College as the shaping point of his life.

Ahead of the Launch and Fund raising dinner off the Adisadel College Millennium (2000) year group, Nana Osae sat down with Ameyaw TV’s Zeinat Issahaku to share some of his experiences as a Santa Clausian, and how those experiences shaped who he is today.

Nana Osae Nyampong’s first contact with Adisadel College was at age 13, as he reminisces some of the most cherish-able characteristics the school instilled in him, he believes those characteristics were essential to his upbringing.

“I got to Adisadel before I was 13 years old. I was a very fragile boy but five years later, Adisadel had transformed me into a self-reliant man,” he tells Zeinat.

“The school is endowed with a peculiar characteristic, that is, if you go and you are supplanted in the middle of a desert, Adisadel would have taught you how to survive. So my days at Adisadel I cherish them so much. And probably that’s why I attribute all my success, if any to my time at Adisadel,” he added.

Nana Osae Nyampong, who holds a BSc in Business Administration from the University of Ghana, Legon, credits 60% of his success to Adisadel, 30% to his mom and the remaining 10% to himself.

As the Patron of the Adisadel college Millennium (2000) year group, Nana Osae Nyampong is constructing a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) block for his alma mater.

He believes Science is a very important part of our world today, hence should be brought to the doorstep of the younger generation.

“… if I had done science, I’m sure I wouldn’t be facing difficulty in understanding energy solutions now. Now the engineers have to speak to me slowly and I indeed the world is moving towards science so those who come after us must be prepared for the future,” he tells Zeinat in the interview.

Nana Osae Nymapong takes pride in giving employment to 175 people who are more qualified than he is at his company.

He also believes consistency and patience are the two most important qualities any entrepreneur should have in order to be successful.

“Consistency, when you want to grow a business, you must have patience because from seeding to maturity for any business is not less than 10 years. So if you don’t have the patience for your idea to mature, go and do trading instead,” he advised.

SXSW Music Festival Dr Pushkin Aggie Budukusu

What is SXSW Music Festival?

The Outlandish album is finally out, and already Dr. Pushkin is on his way to the SXSW Music Festival. The conscious rapper has been confirmed as a performer at the SXSW Music Festival 2023. SXSW, also known as South by Southwest, is the world’s biggest festival of its kind. The event, which takes place in Austin – Texas, brings together over 160,000 fans to a barrage of musical performances, conferences, film premieres, and several mini-events that characterize art. This year’s event comes between the 10th and 19th of March 2023; it will, as usual bring the What’s Next in Tech, Film, Music, and beyond to patrons of the event and the world.

Which Ghanaian artists have performed on the SXSW Music Festival stage?

In 2019, Africa was prioritized by the organizers of the SXSW Music Festival with an “Africa to the World” theme. The event featured a myriad of Africa’s finest musicians and many others. Representing Ghana was Jojo Abot, Stonebwoy, and Efya. In 2023, Dr. Pushkin is honored to represent Ghana on the show.

In a conversation with Dr. Pushkin, he indicated how excited he was about the opportunity. While commenting on it, he mentioned the crew he’s mounting the stage with. According to the “Lies” and “Wake Up” rapper, Ghana’s undisputed tongue-twist specialist, Budukusu, will join him on stage.

The two rappers have collaborated on three songs off Dr. Pushkin’s latest album. And since they’ve been hanging around a lot lately, they are working some magic as a team. Also on Dr. Pushkin’s crew for SXSW 2023 will be Aggie and AZA, featured on “Forgive them” and “No Regrets,” respectively, on the Outlandish album. Selecta Rah of Club Bantu fame will be the crew’s official Deejay as they mount the stage to thrill and awaken the audience.

Dr. Pushkin’s performance comes on the heals of Jojo Abbot, Efya, and Stoneboy who graced the event in 2019 as Ghanaians.
