His passion to promote indigenous African Culture and fashion inspired him to establish a contemporary African fashion movement called Kvngs Of The New School, an all-inclusive group of models and what he terms “Afrocentric/Afro futurist-inspired creatives”.

The group gained international recognition when it was featured in a BBC Africa documentary after catching the eyes of many patrons at Afrochella, a music celebration in Ghana with their unique appearances in 2018.

GlennSamm sums up his perspective on the fashion industry with this, “if you want to succeed in the fashion industry, you must not only be blessed with the physical qualities and features, you also need to work considerably hard to satisfy the fashion directors with your personality traits. It is not always about how stout, tall or attractive features you have, it requires more than that.”
