“Predict the future by creating it, dream bigger than life, love unconditionally.”

There are not many men who can live up to their own motivational quotes. Ato C. Yankah Jr. is one of them. Born in Kiel, the son of a Ghanaian heart surgeon lived in Germany, Africa and America and worked with everybody, from Pierre Sarkozy to famous Hollywood A-list youngsters. But the Nephew of former UN General Secretary and Nobel Peace Prize Laureat, Kofi Annan, has more to offer than just an impressive CV. Whether it is consultancy, music industry or fashion: the man of action is used to make a name for himself. Starting off with writing and producing the German Boyband Bed & Breakfast in the 90’s, he now is the founder of the well-known Gentleman Blog Gentleman’s Essentials and I am Ato.

What makes Gentleman’s Essentials different from other inspirational blogs? 

Ato: “There are a lot of luxury blogs or inspirational blogs on the web. But for me, Gentleman’s Essentials is embodying that emotion that I get from watching James Bond. I see that gentleman who embodies that codex of gentleman rules, but who also messes around in the best places. I wanted people who love this lifestyle and mindset- because for me lifestyle and mindset need to go together. I deeply believe in having virtues and values, mindset and behavior. If Gentleman’s Essentials would be a product, I would see it, as a handmade refined, quality product.”

What can we expect to see from you in the future?

In 2019 I plan to reach the next phase for Gentleman’s Essentials Intl. There are two projects in particular which I’m very excited about. One is an app, which will be the perfect travelling companion for any gentleman. The second is a book that I currently call “Endangered Species”.  I will be interviewing amazing personalities from around the world who have been very successful in their fields, but have maintained their gentleman game. A very important side of this book is that it’s dedicated to my late uncle, the former secretary general of the UN, Kofi Annan.
