Favorite Quotes from Michael Dapaah

“Throughout the journey there’s been so many different factors. I had to overcome barriers of fear, inconsistency, believing in myself as an individual, and believing in the gift and believing that this could actually happen, and this is actually what I’m supposed to do.” – Michael Dapaah (Big Shaq)

“At that point, I had probably worked at Vodafone for about two years, part-time. And it got to the stage that I didn’t like my job, I didn’t like what I was doing, I just always felt there was more in my heart for me to do creatively.” – Michael Dapaah (Big Shaq)

“So I just kinda just went away, came back, started creating, creating, creating. And you know, thank God we’re here today, and we’ve got more to come.” – Michael Dapaah (Big Shaq)
