Being chosen to design and build a sculpture for not so mean an institution like the 37 Military Hospital gives proof to the fact that your works are distinct, valuable and great. This is the story of Mustapha Dimson as told by himself.
Mustapha Dimson is the brain behind the design and construction of the breathtaking sculpture on the premises of one of Ghana’s premier hospital facilities; the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.
Ghbase TV caught up with him to understand how he was selected for this prestigious work and how his journey to prominence started.
The interview session which was anchored by Ghbase finest, Adwoa, had Mustapha Dimson narrate how an unflinching desire to pursue excellence ultimately reaps the reward.
Speaking specifically to how he was able to secure the contract to build the sculpture for the hospital, Mr Dimson said it all started when he decided in 2015 to quit his job and pursue the long tedious journey of entrepreneurship.
According to him, he left the job simply because the financial dividends he was making was nothing to write home about and believed in the starting of his company, Nimus Portfolio, which through several job searches landed him with the BIG contract.
Speaking on how he got the deal to build the sculpture, Mr Dimson laughingly remarked “It was Favour.’ According to him, he met a man in his church who is an employee of the hospital. The hospital, then, had set up a committee to commemorate their 75th anniversary and needed a monument to mark the milestone.
He was introduced to the committee by this church member and later met the Chairman who encouraged him to focus on the work and not the money.
“I had someone who beleived in me and was a source of encouragemnet even when I had not signed the contract,” he said.
After a year of showing his works, working on the preliminary sketches and relentlessly pursuing the deal, the contract was awarded to him after the committee was pleased and convinced he was the right person for the job.
Mustapha Dimson mentioned determination and focus as the values that helped him not to give up on the deal after countless back and forth. As a religious person, he made mention of how he had to depend on the sayings in the Bible to stay resolute in his pursuit backing it with hard work and commitment.
He later showed some of his recent works and encouraged Ghanaians to patronize local goods and support local entrepreneurs and artists to succeed.
