Renowned Ghanaian entrepreneur and economic policy analyst, Senyo Hosi, has attributed his motivation for success to his brilliant siblings.
The former Chief Executive Officer for the Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors who was a guest on Y 107.9 FM’s Y Leaderboard Series with Rev. Erskine revealed that his sisters, who are both accomplished professionals, played a huge role in his drive to succeed.
Mr. Hosi spoke highly of his elder sister, Denyo Hosi, a pathologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, who he crowed as making her alma mater, Aburi Girls Senior High School, popular because of her exceptional performance in the Science and Maths quiz. His second sister, Kafui, is a psychologist in Ottawa, Canada, and is celebrated for her work in black psychology.
“I had very brilliant sisters and I think of the whole crew I’m easily the one with the least on the IQ level. The first, my sister is a pathologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. She really made Aburi Girls popular because she was just brilliant during the Science and Maths quiz and a lot of people took their kids there because of Denyo Hosi. At the time she was just exceptional at the time. We have Kafui also a psychologist in Ottawa and at the frontier of black psychology – pretty well celebrated in the city,” he shared.
The entrepreneur also spoke of his youngest sister, Mrs Dzifa Hosi Montana, who is a lead designer with global payments in Atlanta, and his brother who is a successful realtor. He explained that growing up in a family of such accomplished individuals pushed him to be better and contributed to his motivation for success.
Despite his siblings’ success, Mr. Hosi, who is the only Ghanaian in the family, believes that one’s nationality is important and that every Ghanaian owes it to their country to contribute to making it work. “You’re never them. You’re a Ghanaian, and we all owe it to our country to trigger the change we want to see and be the change we want to have,” he said.
Senyo Hosi, who has served on various public and corporate boards including the Ghana Highway Authority Board and Ghana’s Ministry of Energy’s Ministerial Advisory Board, has been vocal in his advocacy for economic policy reforms in Ghana. He has been credited with spearheading significant policy changes in the energy sector and his expertise has been sought after by various government bodies and international organizations.
