Multiple award-winning Ghanaian artiste Nana Richard Abiona, popularly known as Fuse ODG, has revealed plans to build a brand new Senior High Schoo (SHS)l in Ghana, as well as refurbish another in Jamaica.
The afro-beat sensation wants to help better the education of Ghanaian children in deprived areas, and has decided to ply this route as a way of giving back to society.
Fuse ODG is partnering with Chakabars to raise £500,000 to build the said Senior High
School in Ghana, with the refurbishment of another institute in Jamaica also being considered.

The leader of the This Is New Africa (TINA) movement disclosed his plans in an Instagram post.
He wrote: "Let's build a school in Ghana. And refurbish another in Jamaica."
When completed the school will serve as a training base for students who wish to learn in the practical educational fields.
Students will be equipped with a number of technical and vocational skills, including hairdressing, sewing and carpentry.
The main idea is to have students who are ready for the job market, immediately they complete school and can use such knowledge to open businesses of their own.
This is not the first time, though, that Fuse ODG is embarking on such an initiative.
In 2007 the UK-based artiste collaborated with a charity called Wood World Mission to build a primary school in Akosombo in the Eastern Region.
