Actors Yvonne Nelson and Prince David Osei were out in the streets of Accra on Monday to market Fix Us, a new movie by YN Productions about the challenges actors put up with.

Directed by Pascal Amanfo, the movie tells the story of three young ladies who take on a journey of faith and fate. When Naadie (Yvonne Nelson), Chioma (Yvonne Okoro) and Jaya (Alexandra Amon) run into each other at an audition, they are bound by their common dream to be movie stars and form a friendship that can hardly be broken.

Coolest Nerd In Africa: Meet ELORM K. FOLI, The Maverick Creator Of The SYDEHASSLE App Set To Revolutionize Ghana…Reveals How His Passion To Help SMEs Achieve Sustainable Growth Drives Him

There are different APPs doing a whole lot of things, but there is an APP from the stables of ELORM FOLI's company, E K Brand Consult, called the SYDEHASSLE – which was created from their need to reach more clients quickly within the shortest possible time.

The brain behind this IT-revolutionary idea is a nerd at heart, blessed with a wife who understands the importance of allowing him to isolate himself whenever important milestones have to be reached. We caught up with the usually reclusive entrepreneur to find out more about his latest app.

Welcoming us to the apartment he shares with his wife in the quiet neighborhood of Cantonments, Accra, we were struck by the jovial enthusiasm with which he discussed ideas which belied the unassuming nature we first encountered.

Elorm was fortunate enough to be raised in a typical middle-classed Ghanaian household where the values of hard work, education, integrity and respect were ingrained in him by his parents. His father was an airline pilot for Ghana Airways and naturally was his role model growing up. “I remember days when my mother would ask my sisters and I to keep the noise down whilst playing because my father had a flight later that night. As a child, that struck me as so disciplined and I always wanted to be like him.” He told us. His mother (a people's person), was a housewife until she decided to learn how to make clothes so she could have a little business for fun.
