David Boanuh is the founder of Beautiful Stories, a filmmaking start-up and a former student of Ashesi University.

Getting into Ashesi University, David focused on entrepreneurship and design thinking but later changed his career aspirations entirely.

“Taking the mandatory FDE class in my first year at Ashesi propelled me into the world of videography,” said David. “During the course, my team decided to make a video to explain our final solution and I was put in charge of that. That was my first video and it was terrible, but it was then that I fell in love with videography. I kept making videos even after the course and by my second year, I was certain I wanted to build a career in film-making.”

He told The Ashesi Bulletin.

Since then, David has worked consistently as a freelancer for Unilever,a world leading consumer good company. A year into the partnership, he has produced social media and television ads for multiple Unilever brands; Baileys, Vaseline, Blue Band and Geisha including his biggest ad campaign yet for Rexona, Be the next champ campaign.

The ‘Black is King’ film by Beyoncé has received a lot of attention from people across the globe. In Ghana, the buzz is even intense because it features dancehall artiste Shatta Wale who did ‘Already’ with Beyonce on the ‘Lion King; The Gift’ album.

Shatta Wale’s presence on the project has been well celebrated by a lot of Ghanaians because it is seen as a major exposure for the Shatta Wale brand, as he also markets the country on that front.

Apart from Shatta Wale, there other Ghanaians who also contributed to the making of the ‘Black is King’ film. They are Blitz the Ambassador and Emmanuel Adjei and David Boanuh.
