Van Vicker is a Ghanaian radio personality, actor, filmmaker, and philanthropist. He starred in several successful Nollywood and Ghallywood movies, becoming the face romantic features in the late 2000’s and early 2010’s.
Sharing a picture of himself adorned in an academic gown, the multi award winning 43-year-old actor wrote, “21years later, here I stand before you with 3 achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory. 1. 1st class honors. 2. Best Student in Strategic communication. 3. Best Communication Student Award.”
Who would have known Vicker had no tertiary education experience given his stellar performances on screen?
He continued, “The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enroll at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001.”
“My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education getting that degree was just a matter of time. I complete my Masters program this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to go even beyond, God willing. I thank all those who supported me and is supporting me during this journey. #educational #theyounggodfather.”
