In his bid to promote African music and products to the world, Ghanaian-British Afrobeats singer, Fuse ODG is encouraging parents and guardians to start purchasing dark skinned dolls at the expense of the white ones for their daughters.
At the GAME shop in the Accra Mall, had Fuse ODG launching his Black Dolls named ‘Nana Dolls’.
He explained that the white culture is dominating the black’s even on their own land because kids can’t have access to certain things related to their culture with an example being an African Doll.
‘It’s nice for our kids to see these kind of toys that look like them and feel like queens, princesses and feel like they are beautiful as well. This is why these toys are so important. They promote self-love,” the artiste maintains.’
Fuse further revealed that the dolls were all named after prominent African women such as Yaa Asantewaa, Nehanda, and Miriam Makeba.
‘Nana means Queen or King and these dolls represent power, bravery, confidence, leaders and many great attributes that the younger generation need to know that they already possess, Fuse added.
This is a good step towards the right direction and we entreat all Africans to support the ‘New Africa’ where we all will be extremely proud of our culture and heritage.
