John Jnr @johnd_jnr I’m glad you have finally arrived. It’s been months, weeks, days and hours of waiting…..You look just like we imagined. Infectious smile, bright eyes, curly hair and chocolate skin. Before I get all emotional and write a whole book, lemme let you have these few words to guide you. You can do anything you want and be whoever you want to be just like how my dad allowed me to explore…. Never give up. Always aspire to be better and do better than before. Be a beacon of kindness and truth in this world. Don't have hate in your heart or carry grudges. It is not worth the time and effort it takes when there are so many things in this world to enjoy and love. Do not let others influence who you choose to be, both as a person and in a career, because it is not their life to live, it is yours and it is the most beautiful thing. Think outside the box JJ. Be a risk taker just like I am and don’t be afraid to fail. Failure gives you experience. Use that experience to conquer the world. Let God be your best friend and let Him guide your steps. I will start reading the Bible to you soon and that’s when you will understand how mysterious God works. And one last thing….I really don’t know how to change diapers, so please don’t laugh when that’s happening. I want to be better than my father….and I want you to be greater than me. Love, John Setor Dumelo, your Dad.

Published

on

Akwasi Frimpong, Ghana’s first skeleton athlete, who is also the country’s second Winter Olympian says he is proud to be featured in the official Olympic film ‘Crossing Beyond,’ which was filmed during the Olympic Games PyeongChang 2018.

The film which was done by award-winning documentarian Yi Seung-Jun made its World Premiere on Tuesday, October 9, at the Busan International Film Festival in Busan, South Korea.

“Almost 3,000 athletes competed from 92 countries. To be one of the five featured was special and an honor. I hope my story will inspire others to follow their dreams,” said Akwasi Frimpong who had just returned from the event, which he described as inspiring.

Frimpong, who is currently training for the upcoming skeleton season with his goal of using the season to help prepare for the 2022 Winter Olympics, says director Yi Seung -Jun and his team did a great job putting the film together.

“After watching this documentary, I have come to realize that our adversities, hardships, and obstacles were put in our way to inspire and give others hope,” Frimpong says. “I hope more people get the opportunity to see the documentary, especially the youth, and know they have what it takes to be successful, to know that they have what it takes to be champions and to know they have what it takes to cross beyond obstacles to fulfill their dreams.”

More than anything, Frimpong says he is thankful his story meant so much and made such a positive impact on the 2018 Winter Games. He hopes his message will continue to inspire others in the years ahead, both through competition and by example.

“I left something positive behind during the Olympics. I’m glad I can bring joy and a smile on the face of people in South Korea,” Frimpong said.

“Reaching a billion people individually will be impossible, but this documentary will help reach a billion people. The Billion people who were told success was unattainable, or the billion underdogs who refuse to give up.”

‘Crossing Beyond’ will make its international premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival in November. For more info from Akwasi’s camp contact Robby Messer at [email protected]

He has engaged in many humanitarian efforts with orphanages and NGOs, including New Life Orphanage Ghana, Good Shepherd Orphanage Ghana and USAID Ghana.

His documentary film, ‘Ebola’, was one of his humanitarian efforts after the Ebola outbreak hit West Africa in 2014.

It was a very sad moment for the actor as his homeland was one of the countries hit by the deadly virus.

The film was meant to educate people in areas affected by the disease.

The film was totally financed by Eddie Watson himself and was distributed to most media houses in countries affected plus others in the region of publication and also on the internet without a single charge from the actor.

He launched the ‘We Need Help-Ebola’ campaign the same year the film was shot with the Twitter hashtag #WeNeedHelpEbola.
