Kwesi's childhood passion faced impediments due to the financial burden involved in taking lessons to become a qualified pilot.

''My mum has always been my biggest supporter, and she knew I always wanted to be a pilot. What she didn’t know was I'd been learning how to fly and kept it as a surprise for her,'' he posted.

After bagging his private pilot licence, Manny decided to take his mother on his first flight as a late birthday surprise to her.
