Fuse ODG Has Launched A Line Of African Inspired Dolls

Afrobeat artist Fuse ODG is breaking the mould in a BIG WAY, with the star announcing a line of dolls inspired by “historical black women from Africa”.

 

The collection entitled 'The Nana Dolls' was created by the MOBO Award winner to represent "power, bravery, confidence and many other attributes that the younger generation need to know that they already possess,” 

 

 

The collection currently consists of four dolls: Nana Makeba, Nana Yaa, Nana Nehanda and Nana Kuti. In Ghana the name 'Nana' is often used to refer to a king or queen.

 

Fuse, who spear-headed the This Is New Africa (TINA) movement said "OK SO… We present to you NANA Dolls..@HelloNanaDolls We’ve been working on this for a while..a way to educate our young children about their history in a fun way."

 

He continued, "This is inspired by historical black women from Africa. It’s very important how our younger generation see themselves. Nana means Queen or King and these dolls represent power, bravery, confidence, leaders and many great attributes that the younger generation need to know that they already possess.”

 

The Nana Dolls are currently available to order HERE.
