    You paint a great picture here Patrick. As you say, artists have been talking about development for many years. It is time that Africa's creative arts adds to its development. A refreshing way of thinking.

    We must invest in an education curriculum that prepares our youth for entrepreneurship, that encourages them to think and question and innovate. Many of us were educated purely for passing exams and this becomes a problem later. We also need education policies that promote the education of girls and make general primary education accessible to all.

    Capital injection in the youth population to a did to foster youth employment in Africa is needless to say a continueing white elephant projects. This practice has been ongoing more than 4 decades and still no enormous impact. The reality is, African youth truly feel curious about WEST. No matter how much money or resources spent, 99 percent at some point will want to leave that investment to out WEST before realizing the hidden reality about migration to WEST. For Africa to ultilize its youth population, world bank should try motivating dual national of Sfrican living abroad to consider entrepreneurship ventures. See Akon Lighting as an example, he develop the work ethics and have the insight what hardworking in the West can do. Spending millions on youths in Africa has minimal effects because they are still been dictated by the corrupt leadership and rogue governments. 99% of Africans engagement online is sway on non educational surf, such as facebook, movies, viral vids, sex, dating, and solicitation. I am an African living in America and still have big heart for African growth but the current status core in Africa on social engagements is still a question.
