Ghanaian Reggae and Dancehall recording heavyweight, Emmanuel Andrews Sammini widely known as Samini has completed his tertiary education at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), awaits graduation.
During his time at the school, the “Akye Saa” crooner rose to the high echelons of student leadership in tandem with his political aspirations.
Samini, indeed, put his music on hold and decided to pursue higher education at the GIMPA Business School to put him in pole position for future political roles.
As a staunch supporter of the New Patriotic Party, Samini has made clear his intention to get into mainstream politics and probably toe the line of the likes of John Dumelo, Fred Nuama, et al.
At GIMPA, Samni dropped his celebrity status, studied so hard, made his grades, and eventually was elected as the SRC President.
Samini had Mabel Mensah as his vice president for GIMPA SRC. The musician studied business administration at GIMPA.

Although his tenure as SRC President of GIMPA did not translate into any substantial amount of change due to a lack of funds and resources, Samini was able to channel the energy into his studies.
He did not only graduate as a student leader but also as one of the best-graduating students with a higher CGPA. Samini was one of the best students in his class and the entire faculty.
Samini is expected to graduate from GIMPA next month and venture fully into politics. He has also intimated that he will be returning to music.
