The Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and renowned British actor, Idris Elba have met to discuss possible ways of expanding the creative economy of Africa.

The meeting also focused on the financial inclusion of Ghanaian creative arts and devising strategies to integrate them into the worldwide financial ecosystem.

The Vice President in a Facebook post on February 15, 2024, underscored that “Many African industry players are locked out of the global payments ecosystem and we therefore discussed the proposed implementation of a new system leveraging blockchain technology to assist them and ensure that they get paid for their music and arts no matter where in the world it is used commercially”.

Today, I met with celebrated actor, Idris Elba and his team, and we had a meaningful dialogue on the dynamic and expanding creative arts economy of Africa. Our focus was on the financial inclusion of Ghanaian creative arts and devising strategies to integrate them into the worldwide financial ecosystem.

Many African industry players are locked out of the global payments ecosystem and we therefore discussed the proposed implementation of a new system leveraging blockchain technology to assist them and ensure that they get paid for their music and arts no matter where in the world it is used commercially.

Given Ghana’s relatively advanced system of digital payments, the new system is expected to be launched in Ghana later this year. My thanks to Idris Elba for his commitment to the development of the African creative arts economy.

Dr. Dawumia, the flagbearer for the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) speaking at his lecture dubbed ‘Ghana’s Next Chapter: Selfless Leadership and Bold Solutions for the Future’ at the University of Professional Studies in Accra on February 7, 2024, promised to create digital platforms for Ghanaian artistes if he becomes Ghana’s next president.

He justified that such platforms will boost tourism and the creative arts industry.
