Nana Kwame Bediako was born in Kumasi, Ghana. He attended Accra Academy before moving to Apam Senior High School. He studied business at the Waltham Forest College, United Kingdom.

Business career
Bediako started his business career when his rich father gave him and his brother some money to help their mother who was broke.

While his brother bought eggs and bread with the money, Bediako bought two hens and started a poultry business. The business grew and he sold 200 eggs a month.

Once at the Waltham Forest College, UK, he started selling clothes to fellow students and within a short period he bought his first car with profits he made from the business.

Later he diversified his business to scrap metal collection and sales before venturing into telecommunication sector in 1999. He established a company which billed people for online transactions during the dotcom era.

An India investor offered to buy the company with £327,000 but he declined on the advice of his lawyer. The investor later returned with an offer of £410,000 which he accepted.

After adding the money to his savings, he realized that he had made his first million pounds and thought that if he built a good company, he could make a lot of money.

With his first million pounds in hand, he claimed that God told him to go to Africa and he returned to his home country, Ghana where he started Kwarleyz Group with diverse interests in real estate, finance and property management.

The Kwarleyz Group is the developer of the Wonda World Estate in Accra and the proposed Petronia City. The Kwarleyz Group has constructed 500 units of residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
