Anthony Owura-Akuaku, also known as Nenebi Tony, is a writer and researcher hailing from Ghana, West Africa. His work intricately explores the convergence of law, business, media, and culture. In his acclaimed book, "everything that happened and the people who made it," Nenebi Tony artfully profiles Ghana's top 10 most influential entertainment brands of the 2010s. Currently a Graduate Entrepreneurship Fellow at the University of Arkansas, he is diligently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Finance.
