Grammy Award winning Ghanaian afro beats star, Fuse ODG has disclosed that he is building schools in Ghana with the help of British Singer, Ed Sheeran.
The ‘Azonto’ hitmaker made the statement in an interview with CEO of Luc Belaire, Brett Berish as part of Belaire’s video series Self Made Tastes Better.
“So he came, we linked up together in Ghana, spent a week together and that’s when I got to understand him. He’s just a free person who just loves good vibes. And he loved the energy of Ghana”. he said
“He loved our food, loved the music – I introduced him to a couple of artists over there. I took him to the school. He loved the school, he loved the idea that it started as an orphanage, then it turned into a primary school and it’s a school that’s free for the whole community to come. So these disadvantaged kids who usually can’t afford education now have a chance for an education,”
He added that: “So straight away he contributed to us buying buses and building a bridge that connected the community to the school….To this day we’re still working on the school together”.
He also indicated that his vision of Africa is one of amazing progress, far removed from the usual stereotypes seen in the media.
