During The African Development Bank Conference in Marrakech this fantastic Gala Dinner was hosted by the Taj Palace. It was an amazing evening with music from John Legend, Youssou N'Dour as well as a spectacular fashion show celebrating creative talent from three of Africa's top designers. At the event the Made in Africa Foundation presented a special award to Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank. Ozwald Boeteng was interviewed that evening by BBC World News and he also launched his film 'Our Future, Made in Africa. You can view the film on U-tube or The Made in Africa Website.
The extraordinary amount of work that went into this show was overwhelming and the performances outstanding. It was fantastic that Marrakech was chosen to host this important week of inter country relationship building, knowledge sharing and debate.
Being born in Uganda and growing up in Nigeria, my life has been effected by African politics and I have been involved in many discussions on how this great continent can inter trade and harness its wealth. After all I was made in Africa! It was fantastic to be able to be involved in this inspirational week and hear new views and opinions from different generations.
Watch this space as Africa goes from strength to strength and better road, rail and airlinks are developed.
