UK-based Ghanaian musician, Fuse ODG, is on a mission to spread his wealth to some underprivileged kids in the country.
The artiste through his New Africa Nation initiative, started an orphanage in 2007 which has now been turned into a school.
Speaking on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM, Fuse ODG said that the school built in Akosombo has 250 pupils currently enrolled.
“A lot of them [the student] are grown now because we started this in 2007. We’re working on the secondary school and we’re actually raising funds for it,” he told Mamavi Owusu-Aboagye, host of the show.
Fuse ODG, born Nana Richard Abiona, stated that the pupils don’t have to pay fees, however, some parents who feel the need to contribute are allowed to help.
“It’s not compulsory if you can’t afford it. A lot of the kids even stay over because they have nowhere else to go,” the ‘Antenna’ hitmaker stated.
According to him, the expenses are taken care of by himself and funds raised by his friends. He revealed that some of the proceeds he got from ‘Boa Me’ the Ed Sheeran song he co-wrote, others from his songs and shows, are put into taking care of the school.
