Ghanaian Vlogger, Wode Maya joins 5 other popular YouTubers to cover the 2023 World Economic Forum in Davos

Ghanaian influencer and Youtuber, Wode Maya along with 5 global YouTubers have arrived in the Switzerland city of Davos to cover this year’s World Economic Forum.

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2023 will see some 2,700 leaders from 130 countries, including 52 heads of state/government and business leaders attend the meetings.

Despite the presence of media personnel at the event, the invitation of digital content creators to broadcast the forum is a novelty in itself which the Forum started in 2020.  Lily Singh, Dan Howell, Indian creator Bhuvan Bam, Mexican influencer Juanpa Zurita, Dianna Cowern of the PhysicsGirl channel have been invited in the past.

Wode Maya (real name Berthold Kobby Winkler Ackon) was listed along with influencers from Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, India and the Middle East on the website of the organisation which was established in 1971 by the German economist Klaus Schwab.

“The 2023 YouTube delegation is the largest group of social media creators ever to participate in the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, where they’ll be bringing the issues driving the agenda to the attention of a vast new audience,” a portion of the statement read on the website.

The theme for this year’s event is “Cooperation in a Fragmented World”.

An excited Wode Maya shared the news on his Twitter account and wrote: “I just arrived in Davos Switzerland as part of the 6 YouTube Creators that will be covering behind the scenes of this Year’s WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM!”

The Forum described Maya as a man “on a mission to change the narrative of Africa by showcasing its many cultures and lifestyles.”

It added that “his focus on Africans contributing to the development of Africa has led him to visit countries the length and breadth of the continent, interviewing several regional leaders along the way.
