UK based Ghanaian artiste, Fuse ODG has expressed readiness in hosting the much awaited TINA Fest dubbed ‘This Is The New Africa’ in January 2019 which will project Ghana’s rich culture.
Fuse ODG speaking on Citi TV last Thursday disclosed that he is putting together a couple of projects to help make Africans proud of who they are with a concert on January 4, 2019.
The Grammy Award winner who recently released his ‘Bra Fie’ (Come Home) single that features Damian Marley, has disclosed that the concert dubbed ‘Tina Fest’ [This is the new Africa] will display the rich African culture, including wearing Kente cloth.
On changing the negative narratives about black people he said: “We need to learn to unlearn some of the negative perceptions about Africa and being black.”
He further noted that racism by people outside the African continent is not appropriate and he gets worried anytime he hear about that.
“People still have funny perceptions about the black race and there is the need to fix this wrong thinking,” he said.
He has also launched black dolls which portray different African personalities and evoke the spirit of true Africanism.
The dolls which are based on historical stories of black women with amazing stories will also be available in school at Akosombo so the pupils would have the opportunity to play with them in their lessons.
