Prince Kwamina "Kwame" Francis Ata-Amonoo, who was born in England in 1977, the son of Mr and Mrs Kweku Ata-Amonoo, came from the distinguished royal family of Anomabo in Ghana, West Africa.

As a child he attended Southville Primary School before winning a place at Clark's Grammar School in Clifton.

He excelled in both creative and analytical endeavours and left school with a large number of GCSEs. In addition he was awarded a prize for attaining one of the highest marks in mathematics throughout the UK.

After school he decided not to take A-levels and try to go to university.

Instead, he took on an internship at one of the largest banks in Bristol which became a full-time position after which he joined the Civil Service.

However, the Civil Service did not satisfy his entrepreneurial flair and so he decided to branch out on his own as a businessman.

Many of those who knew Kwame said he was a man of principle and honesty, gravity and dignity were the hallmarks of his character.

Kwame's passions were music, namely R&B, soul and rap, as well as classic cars.

His funeral service was due to be held at St Mary Redcliffe Church on September 1 at midday.
