The vision of the Kwarleyz Group

The Kwarleyz’s Residence is Ghana’s premium accommodation and residences, providing an alternative and sophisticated lifestyle experience to its visitors.

The inspiration behind Kwarleyz’s Residence is what you need to hear. Cheddar in an interview with Bola Ray on his Revealed With Bola Ray show and with Dentaa Amoateng had stated that his father is a rich man but did not pay attention to his mother who he described as a poor woman then.

He went to stay with his mother in her poverty and started selling metal scraps from which he made his money and started this whole development project we see today.

Freedom Jacob Caesar said he did everything possible to turn his mother’s poverty (curse) into a gift and that resulted in the birth of Kwarleyz Residence.

As a special dedication, Kwarleyz Group was named in honor of the founder’s mother, Madame Elizabeth Adjei, affectionately called Auntie Kwarley due to her resilience, affection, and passion.

The Kwarleyz Group’s vision for New Africa is being realized through its inter-dependent specialty companies which focus on the ambitious development and construction of the residential, commercial, and industrial real estate, infrastructure, smart cities, financial investment, and property management in West Africa.

The Journey of Petronia City Development

After honoring his mother with Kwarleyz Residence, Freedom Jacob Caesar (FJC) turned his attention to building his continent, Africa, where he started from a small part of his community.

The philanthropist and industrialist disclosed that building a house just to be on his lips that he is wealthy is not his dream, but he has the vision to develop cities.

“My dream is not to be extremely successful or find all these riches from development, my dream is to develop nations and to impact societies”, Nana Kwame Bediako stated.

According to the CEO of Kwarleyz Group, Petronia, a subsidiary of his brands came about in his motive to use developments to close his country’s deficit.

Explaining further, Cheddar outlined the fact that although the economy of Ghana is bad, there is a huge gap to bridge so that the majority of Ghanaians can afford his houses.

Cheddar’s vision is to reduce poverty in Ghana and Africa as a whole and to increase the Gross domestic product (GDP) to change the economy when everyone is rich, he can call himself a developer because people can afford to buy homes from him.
