32-year-old Naa-Sakle Akuete has an MBA from Harvard, but the best business professor she’s ever had just might be her mother, Eugenia.
In 2014, Akuete launched Eu’Genia Shea, a line of high-quality shea butters that are packaged in beautiful, embossed tins. Founding her own company wasn’t the path Akuete had in mind while she was in school, but the move proves that the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree.

In his feature film debut The Burial of Kojo, Blitz Bazawule tells a story of two brothers through the gaze of a gifted girl who travels between gorgeous lands that exist in life and death.
It’s not your ordinary narrative film, but a cinematic fable that is surreal, magical and infused with Afrofuturistic elements. Yes, it is complex and yes, it will probably make your brain bleed with its visual prowess, but Bazawule isn’t here to give you normal. He’s here to change the game while rattling your senses with a dose of global and inclusive storytelling. As Bazawule said, “Nobody cares about normal, right?”
When musicians turn to film directing, it doesn’t always work out. Ask anyone who’s seen Bob Dylan’s nearly-five-hour musical romance “Renaldo and Clara” (although that oddity does have its wary admirers).
