A conference for young and entrepreneurial entertainers dubbed ‘Pempamsie’ has ended on a promising note at the W.E.D. Dubois Memorial Centre. ‘Pempamsie’ is the next stop in the entertainment education, where you gain truly useful information about the industry.

“One of the things that inspired me to organize the conference was the challenges I faced as an individual coming up in the entertainment industry. There were a lot of people who helped me along the way, without their support, nothing would have been possible, so it’s just a question of giving back to the society. Making an impact in the lives of this young people and encouraging them to believe in themselves and to be creative and that they will also go and create further and meaningful impact in not only in their own lives but in the lives of the greater community”.
According to Nana Agyei Parker, one of the things he wants to achieve with the yearly conference is to start dialogue among the young and to give them the platform to realize their potential.
