In our society, one who doesn’t go to school is seen as a liability and such a person is not given respect.
Some successful people in the world today including the owner and founder of Facebook is a university school dropout but that doesn’t mean we should all follow that trend.
Over here in Ghana, Ghpage has identified some Ghanaian celebrities who have dropped out of school yet became somehow successful in their respective careers.
Some, however, went back to get their Bachelors and Masters Degree years after dropping out.
Here’s a list of the Ghanaian celebrities who dropped out of school yet became successful.
‘King of the Streets’ Emmanuel Botwe, known by his stage name Kwaw Kese, also popularly called Abodam, is a Ghanaian hiplife artist.
Kwaw Kese is well known for his hit album Abodam in 2007 from which he won 5 awards at the 2008 edition of the Ghana Music Awards.
Kwaw Kesse unknown to many is a senior high school graduate with no university degree and has been considered as one of the best stage performers in Ghana.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr., known by his stage name Shatta Wale, is a Ghanaian-born producer and dancehall musician.
Perhaps, he is the most controversial artiste in Ghana currently. In 2014, he won Artist of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards.
He has one of the largest followers in the country due to his style of music and controversial lyrics.
According to my checks, Shatta Wale is a senior high school graduate from Winneba Senior High School but has since not thought of getting a university degree as he has seen himself becoming a successful musician.

One-half of R2Bees, Paedae aka Omar Sterling dropped out of school at Senior high school level but is one of the well-known rappers in Ghana today.
He raps in English and emerged as an artist of the year in 2013 along with Mugeez at the Ghana Music Awards.
Omar Sterling is currently the President of Starboy Worldwide and many aspire to be like him.
Questions that most tv presenters are afraid to ask people on their various shows, Delay is perhaps the only bold person to ask such questions.
The ‘extremely’ beautiful tv and radio personality has had her own share of controversies.
Delay attended Methodist University and just two months before her graduation, she dropped out.
Deloris Frimpong Manso as she’s known in real life revealed she attended school because of the pressure from society and that she had no real interest in formal education.
Being the producer of tv shows like Afia Schwarzenegger and Cocoa Brown series and now the host of The Delay Show, she says her happiness is in the field of business rather than formal education.
