Visitors to the Golf Park in Achimota, Ghana, cannot fail to notice Frank Dei’s beautifully painted pots, which transform the serene environment of the park into a variegated landscape of evocative forms and colours. Presented in pairs and arranged in several rows and columns, the wide range of pots on display beckon to prospective buyers like beautiful maidens flirting with suitors. Dei’s flowerpot business is reflective of the entrepreneurial spirit of many young Africans, especially in developing countries, who strive to cope with scarce job opportunities and high unemployment rates.
