KSM in the CommunityKSM is just as passionate about the youth as he is about entertainment. He feels a particular kinship and concern for young people in Ghana and in the last 10 years, he has been a key part of many youth seminars and workshops where he often speaks about developing and maximizing potential. He has also written and published a now popularly acclaimed book "Unlocking the Job Market" that describes how to transform a talent into a skill as the key to tapping into, creating and generating employment in Ghana. His seminars and lectures have been an avenue to giving back to the nation he loves so much, his service to his nation; as he strongly believes that "national service" is and should be lifelong.

Kwaku Sintim-Misa, known popularly as "KSM" is the founder and CEO of Sapphire Ghana Limited. In addition to this, he has also been involved in radio presenting, acting, directing and is most noted for his satiric stage performances most notably "Saga of a Returnee", "Afia Siriboe" "Politically Incorrect" and his seriously funny rendition of "Kwame Nkrumah" where through satirical, comical characters he brings to life subject matters that are often taken for granted.Professionally, he wears many hats; a proud nationalist and an 'edutainer'. All the different hats do the same thing - use comedy and other engaging media platforms to create awareness of pertinent social and national issues and our responsibilities as Ghanaians in recognising and addressing them.He believes that making things funny doesn't take anything away from how serious things are; in fact, comedy has been his greatest communication tool because it allows people to let their guard down. His one man shows have made people laugh but hopefully left people thinking. What people may not know is that KSM is also a very spiritual man and believes we all have the power to influence and touch each other and are gifted in our various ways.
