DIASPORANS MAKING A DIFFERENCE
I had a chance to see Fuse ODG speak in person at the Georgetown Africa Business Conference this year, and I must say, he’s doing great work that is inspiring change in the African Diaspora.
Nana Richard Abiona, better known by his stage name Fuse ODG, is an Ghanaian English hip hop recording artist. He is best known for his 2013 single “Antenna” which peaked to number 7 on the UK Singles Chart. Born in London and raised in Ghana, Fuse returned to London for his secondary education, where he attended the Archbishop Lanfranc School, Croydon. He grew up in Mitcham, South London.
T.I.N.A., which is an acronym for This Is New Africa, is a concept which urges Africans in Africa and the diaspora to use their skills and rebuild their communities to show the world the more beautiful side of Africa. Fuse wears this term so proudly on his hats and his clothes.
In 2015, Fuse decided to go to Accra, Ghana and purchase a home. Symbolizing his return to Africa to reclaim his past.
