Andrew Takyi-Appiah

The Managing Director (MD) of Zeepay, a leading mobile financial services company, Mr. Andrew Takyi-Appiah has been named Africa’s Fintech Leader of the Year by Business Insider Africa.

Mr. Takyi-Appiah is one of a number of business leaders across Sub-Saharan Africa who have been recognised by Business Insider for playing instrumental roles to the growth and advancement of the region’s economic landscape.

As a consumer choice award with significant market leaders, Mr. Takyi-Appiah beat stiff competition from the likes of Tayo Oviosu of Paga Pay Nigeria; Olugbenga Agboola, CEO and Co-Founder of Flutterwave; and Dare Okoudjou, founder and CEO of MFS Africa.

“As a consumer choice award, I am highly honoured to be recipient of this prestigious honour. This speaks to the number of impressed users we have. I do dedicate this honour to the users of our platforms and our hardworking team at Zeepay,” he said.


Prior to co-founding Zeepay in 2016, Mr. Takyi-Appiah worked at UT Bank Ghana as a General Manager. In the past he served in top roles at other outfits including PwC Ghana, PwC UK, Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, and GTBank.

Today, Zeepay is the largest cross border remittance aggregator on the African continent with an annual turnover of US$900million circa 2021. This award, he noted, is also a testament to how as a nation the fintech regulations and legal systems are strong enough to produce giants such has Zeepay.

“We are a young and fast growing company and we can only get stronger from here. This year, we plan to do more in terms of remittances and our mobile money service which is now in the top three in Ghana. Thank you to all who have supported us all these years.”
