In life and even in death, Dumor was an inspiration to many, a clear example that there is no such thing as overnight success, but success was a sure thing with hardwork and perseverance.

"You can always have big dreams but you also have to have the patience to achieve them. You can make it wherever you are” - Komla Afeke Dumor | The Boss Player
