The Management of Golden Sunbeam Technology Valley, a Ghanaian owned Company, has initiated an innovative and ambitious business investment in the Agribusiness industry worth USD 3 million dollars to train the youth in work based skills to transform and empower them to be self-reliant and self-employed to meet the food needs of the populace.

According to Mr Emmanuel Ohene Opare , the  Chairman of GSTV, the agribusiness project is expected to create over one (1) thousand jobs within the short to medium term, grow the national economy and provide sustainable returns for investors or donors. Providing details at the launch in Accra, Mr Ohene Opare explained that the total cost of the Project is USD 3million and in three product lines – Piggery, Aquaculture and Green house vegetable farming situated in Ayi Kumah in the Shai Osudoku district in the Greater Accra Region and Essam, near Akyem Oda in the Eastern Region. The Company has already invested USD 1 million dollars to acquire 50 acres titled land, secured it with a 1.6 kilometer wall, fully gated with CCTV cameras installed overseeing the whole land. In addition, it has procured over 120 KVA off grid solar equipment to mitigate the risk of electricity failure, sunk boreholes with solar pumps to provide water for the project. In order to boost its Fish farming initiative, it has constructed an initial 20 ponds for tilapia and catfish production.

The additional funding of USD 2m is expected to expand the Project particularly in the areas of Greenhouse Farming technology, fish processing and canning machinery and other infrastructural works.

“we have had to resort to crowdfunding to drive this ambitious agribusiness initiative because of its relative low cost and to give as many global citizens the opportunity to create wealth and jobs within the agribusiness value chain” Mrs Monica Ohene Opare, the CEO of Golden Sunbeam Technology Valley, further explained as reason for using the Crowdfunding platform. According to Mrs Opare, Global investors in the Project are not only contributing to developing the agricultural value chain eco system and creating jobs for thousands of people but will also earn a decent 25% return on their investment (in GHC) per annum for a minimum period of 3 years.

She urged the Government to support such patriotic initiatives with tax reliefs and other incentives to enable more enterpreneurs to venture into the Agricultural sector. “we intend to engage Ghana Exim Bank, NEIP and UstartProgram for the necessary support” she intimated.

The Crowdfunding campaign is expected to begin in December 1, 2021 and end in January 31st, 2022. The minimum amount to invest is GHC 1000 and maximum GHC 20,000 for a tenor of 3 years minimum. The media campaign is expected to be launched on Social Media and national dailies platforms shortly. Mrs Monica Opare encouraged donors and investors to support such worthy projects for the benefit of millions of people as more Youths are expected to be trained to acquire practical skills in Green house farming, Aquaculture and Piggery to grow the Agricultural value chain Industry and deepen food security within the sub region. As she puts it “hardworking interns will be supported with work based skill training as paid interns in production, processing and marketing of the various projects to start their own business as OUTGROWERS for the main project on the main campus”

SXSW Music Festival Dr Pushkin Aggie Budukusu

What is SXSW Music Festival?

The Outlandish album is finally out, and already Dr. Pushkin is on his way to the SXSW Music Festival. The conscious rapper has been confirmed as a performer at the SXSW Music Festival 2023. SXSW, also known as South by Southwest, is the world’s biggest festival of its kind. The event, which takes place in Austin – Texas, brings together over 160,000 fans to a barrage of musical performances, conferences, film premieres, and several mini-events that characterize art. This year’s event comes between the 10th and 19th of March 2023; it will, as usual bring the What’s Next in Tech, Film, Music, and beyond to patrons of the event and the world.

Which Ghanaian artists have performed on the SXSW Music Festival stage?

In 2019, Africa was prioritized by the organizers of the SXSW Music Festival with an “Africa to the World” theme. The event featured a myriad of Africa’s finest musicians and many others. Representing Ghana was Jojo Abot, Stonebwoy, and Efya. In 2023, Dr. Pushkin is honored to represent Ghana on the show.

In a conversation with Dr. Pushkin, he indicated how excited he was about the opportunity. While commenting on it, he mentioned the crew he’s mounting the stage with. According to the “Lies” and “Wake Up” rapper, Ghana’s undisputed tongue-twist specialist, Budukusu, will join him on stage.

The two rappers have collaborated on three songs off Dr. Pushkin’s latest album. And since they’ve been hanging around a lot lately, they are working some magic as a team. Also on Dr. Pushkin’s crew for SXSW 2023 will be Aggie and AZA, featured on “Forgive them” and “No Regrets,” respectively, on the Outlandish album. Selecta Rah of Club Bantu fame will be the crew’s official Deejay as they mount the stage to thrill and awaken the audience.

Dr. Pushkin’s performance comes on the heals of Jojo Abbot, Efya, and Stoneboy who graced the event in 2019 as Ghanaians.
