Mandiaya spoke about the importance of self-represention as a people and the need to create contemporary versions of historical events for mass consumption.
Often the history of Africans are documented by foreigners whose racial bias create far from accurate accounts of political occurrences.
With this background he (Mandiaya) founded Chaka Orleans Heritage Foundation(COHF) to re-document African history and empower the youth to take up initiatives to develop themselves and their communities.

He also spoke about the importance of the Naa gbewa documentary which is meant to educate Ghanaians especially those from Northern Ghana about their connection to each other thereby promote peace and unity.

The long term aim which is raising funds to build a university in honour of Naa Gbea to help facilitate development in the area.

The Naa Gbewa documentary is the first in a series of more historical documentaries about Africa to be made.
