KOD, who currently works with Starr FM, first worked as a production assistant for a TV show on Ghana Broadcasting Corporation(GBC) for a short period of time and later left to join the then budding and vibrant Radio Gold.
He left the shores of Ghana later to England to seek greener pastures and to explore other opportunities.
He initially aspired to be a model but unfortunately got hired as a security person and was only posted to fashion houses like Ted Baker, Paul Smith etc.
On one such duty posts, the manager at Paul Smith spotted the sharpness in his outfit and urged him to quit his job as a security guard and apply there as a salesperson and seeing the huge opportunity opened to him; he quickly applied for the position and was successful.
As someone who is celebrating his 40th birthday, many would’ve expected KOD to organize one of the most extravagant birthday parties to commemorate such a salient moment, but Razzonline.com is reliably informed that the fashionista is currently mourning his late uncle.
