The Fisher Boy

Stephen “Kwaku” Ghansah, MP and World Cup hero, announces his candidacy for President of Ghana. Ghansah grants reporter Ama Danku an exclusive interview. Although always vague about his unusual past, he opens up about his beginnings as an orphan and fishing slave that overcomes those difficult circumstances. In his life, he encountered the most evil in people but also the good. His indomitable spirit and faith in God allowed him to achieve the impossible. You will experience despair, anger, joy, and inspiration through Kwaku’s story.
