To the Ghanaian youth, the roles of an Ambassador has never been clearer and felt than during the office of the Ambassador of France to Ghana, Her Excellency Anne Sophie Ave. Not only has she consciously broken some misconceptions in the Ghanaian mind about her homeland, she has in a short time consciously made France and the French language desirable to most Ghanaian youth.
Her France in Ghana show was the best way to go. Her Excellency, earned her space in the hearts of most Ghanaian youth as she made her guests and close friends influential creative arts people Ghanaians generally adored.
From there, her undying interest in the creative arts and sports industry of Ghana has been admirable. But the industry that has felt her impact the most has been the much ignored creative arts industry of Ghana. From making appearance at shows, participating in dance trends, hosting of exhibitions at the Embassy and now projecting some of the biggest exports in the creative arts industry in France for a show.
The take over of the French media and space by Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Ghanaian photographers, influencers, bloggers and event team ahead of the event in Paris, is one that can be appreciated and encouraged. Ghana music together with some key players and enablers get to travel and cross bothers into a larger market. Which only paves the way for more of such events across the globe.
In my interview with Her Excellency on Oneplay Africa as part of the International Women’s Day Celebration, She made it obvious that making an impact in Ghana and especially among the youth is a priority of hers. So far her intentions to sell Ghana’s creative arts is applaudable.
Congratulations to Her Excellency, her team, organizers, supporters and the enablers in Ghana and in France for the initiative. The creative arts industry is appreciative of her immense contribution to the space.
