One thing is common between these big names and aside from them being prominent within the Ghanaian media space, these individuals are all business moguls who earn their fortune from various endeavors.
Also, between them, one is already a billionaire (in dollars) whereas the other is a millionaire (in dollars) but certainly, all are billionaires in cedis.
Who are these individuals?
