After being turned down for entrance to Achimota School due to his dreadlocks, Tyrone Marhguy, the teenage Rastafarian, has triumphantly returned to the lips of Ghanaians—this time, for academic achievement.
Unexpectedly, Marhguy did exceptionally well in the 2023 West African Senior Secondary School Examinations (WASSCE), earning an astounding eight As.
Marhguy and fellow student Oheneba Nkrabea were accused of discrimination after Achimota rejected him in 2021, sparking a national controversy and a social media firestorm.
The Human Rights Court declared that the school’s policy regarding dreadlocks was inappropriate and an infringement on Marhguy and Nkrabea’s ability to practice their religion.
But Marhguy’s most recent academic achievement has overshadowed this success.
Social media is buzzing once more over a picture that went viral showing his purported WASSCE results, which highlights his remarkable success in eight disciplines.
Although Marhguy and Achimota School have not formally announced the results, the announcement has undoubtedly generated praise as well as a revived conversation regarding the original disagreement.
In a post on X (formerly Twitter) to celebrate his achievement, Tyrone wrote, “Odds against odds. 8As bagged!! We did family; we made it!
