Nana Richard Abiona, better known by his stage name Fuse ODG, a British-Ghanaian singer, songwriter and rapper, was on the Big Conversation on 3Music TV earlier today, where he discussed his plans to launch an educational app and also create an initiative that will help Ghanaian artistes develop their craft over time in order to make it marketable to the world.
As an advocate for promoting Africa and focusing on children having the right elements in their upbringing, he mentioned a project he is planning to launch called School Of New Africa (SONA). This is an educational app designed specifically to teach African children about their history. This application is meant for children over the age of seven. He explained that parents can sign up their children to have access to this educational software, where they can deposit tokens in their wallets that will serve as rewards for their children as they learn about their past. Fuse is rehabilitating schools in rural communities, promoting the Year of Return, and organizing Accra-based festivals. He has also produced a line of dolls inspired by strong African women to instill pride and acceptance and inclusivity in children.
Fuse went on to say that the government should pay extra attention to the creative industry because diasporans come to Ghana for the experience they get from the country, which is heavily influenced by music. Following that, he underlined the need for Ghanaian artistes to spend time together in order to build trust and transparency among themselves, which will allow them to tap into the knowledge that is easily available from conversations about brand partnerships, record and distribution deals.
Fuse became the first Ghanaian to win a Grammy Award in 2018 for co-writing Ed Sheeran's Divide album which won the Best Pop Vocal album.
