Mr. Amoabeng, who chronicled his move from the military to the corporate world, said it was not simple.
He stated in his story that he faced a lot of obstacles that stymied his desire to become a successful entrepreneur.
However, Prince Kofi Amoabeng confessed to Benjamin Akakpo on Joy News’ Prime Morning Show on Monday that his success came after he divorced his wife.
He explained the situation by saying that his divorce ‘fortunately’ provided him the opportunity to focus on his business, which led to his success in growing his empire.
“Because I didn’t have the family burden, I could even devote more of every time I had to build the company. Yeah because when my kids were home, naturally you’ll come and play with them, you listen to their problems, you try to solve their problems at school, school issues, but all these things ‘luckily’, and I say luckily in inverted commas, my wife took them away,” Mr. Amoabeng explained.
The businessman also revealed that the demands of his business commitments kept him away from his family, resulting in a rift between him and his children, which he regrets.
Prince Kofi Amoabeng also took questions about his new book, ‘The UT Story: Humble Beginnings,’ which was just released.
Regarding the now-defunct UT bank, Prince Kofi Amoabeng expressed his happiness with the situation, attributing everything to God’s will.
