Debrah Sarpong, a phone repairer, who later turned into a shoeshine boy and subsequently ended up at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as a student studying science in accounting and finance, has finally graduated.

At the age of 12, on the street of Kumasi Amakom, Master Debrah started the hustle on a bad note by pushing drugs.

Though he was not a user of the drugs, he distributed the drugs. When later he realised the dangers involved, he quit and began repairing phones before moving to the shoeshine business.

The shoeshine business became the game-changer which literally set him up for studies at KNUST.
