AAG mourns Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey

The Advertising Association of Ghana and indeed the entire advertising fraternity in Ghana and across the world has been thrown into a state of shock at the news of the sudden passing of one of the giants of the profession – Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey.

Jake, was one of the founding pillars of Advertising in Ghana. He begun his career in Lintas West Africa and rose through the ranks, eventually becoming Managing Director of Lintas Ghana and Afromedia Ltd for many years.

He was recognised around the world for the pioneering role he played in several advertising campaigns notable among which were several behavior change interventions.

He was indeed the first President and one of the founders of the Advertising Association of Ghana in its current form.

His sudden demise is a monumental loss to the advertising fraternity. The Executive Council and the entire membership of the Advertising Association of Ghana extend deepest condolences to Jake’s family on the loss of this great Ghanaian.

May his soul, rest peacefully in the Lord.
