Bawumia meets Idris Elba to discuss future of creative arts economy

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and acclaimed actor Idris Elba recently collaborated to explore the future of financial inclusion for Ghanaian creatives.

Their discussion, which took place at the Jubilee House on February 15, 2024, centered on harnessing the potential of Africa’s dynamic creative arts industry by seamlessly integrating Ghanaian artists into the global financial landscape.

One particularly promising initiative emerged from their dialogue: the introduction of a new financial system leveraging blockchain technology. This innovative solution aims to empower African artists by streamlining and securing global payments for their work, irrespective of their location or distribution platform.

Dr. Bawumia expressed optimism about the transformative potential of this system, citing Ghana’s robust digital payments infrastructure as a significant advantage. He emphasized that the forthcoming launch of this system later in the year would open doors for Ghanaian creatives to flourish on the international stage.

The Vice President commended Idris Elba for his dedication to bridging the gap between African creatives and the global market, recognizing his efforts as instrumental in advancing the creative industry’s financial inclusion agenda.
