The most anticipated annual list of young Ghanaians, 50 Most Influential Young Ghanaians, which is curated by leading PR & Rating firm, Avance Media, has been released.
Currently in its fifth year, the annual ranking by Avance Media has helped highlight the works of young Ghanaians across the world and has seen notable personalities such Anas Aremeyaw Anas (2015 & 2016), Kow Essuman (2017) and Prophet Daniel Amoateng (2018) voted as the Most Influential Young Ghanaians in the previous years.
Honourees cut across diverse sectors with these inspiring young change-makers and leaders making great strides as entrepreneurs, musicians, activists, media personalities, social entrepreneurs, public servants and politicians.
According to Prince Akpah, founder and MD of Avance Media, “the list serves as an encouragement to young Ghanaians who are accomplished in their industries and continue to build a distinguished brand for themselves and influence over others. This list also urges those honoured to continue striving harder so their stories can inspire other young people to also contribute their quota to the development of Ghana and the continent of Africa.”
