Komla Dumor, 2003 winner of the GJA Journalist of the Year, was the only West African newsreader on the BBC World News until his death.

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.
