For many years, Forbes has featured the majority of the world’s most prominent people who are making a positive impact in the space in which they find themselves.
To have a photo of your work featured on Forbes is a big deal. Forbes is a global media company, focusing on business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle.
Sharing the good news to his social media followers, the visual storyteller wrote;
“I remember telling Kvng Glenn Samm of making a move to get me featured on Forbes then this happens. Words are powerful. Remember to speak positively into your life. Good morning family.”
We asked him what inspires some of his work and he said, “Nothing really, I just try my best to be creative in an african way and bring out something that will stick in the minds of people for a long time”
Aguzey has also been nominated in this year’s Ghana Showbiz and Influencers awards for Discovery of the year.
