Bah-Pna Dahane graduated in 1999 with a Master’s Degree in International Business and Marketing and a minor in Political Sciences & Black Studies from Portland State University (Oregon-USA) and Lyon II (France).
Before heading for his Master’s, Bah-Pna worked as a sports marketing consultant and in 1998 joined the firm Coca-Cola France to work as a sports marketing liaison during the 1998 FIFA Soccer World Cup in his hometown of Lyon (France).

In 2001, Bah-Pna left his job as a Business Specialist in the telecom industry for Sprint PCS (USA) to join Nike France as the head of Basketball Sports Marketing.

In 2009, he set a precedent in African basketball marketing by putting together a very lucrative sponsorship deal between the firm Nike and the basketball powerhouse, the Angola Basketball Federation. As a result of this deal, in 2010, Nike designed the first Nike shoe dedicated to an African country and sold it on the US market: The Nike Hyperdunk Angola.

impact of arts, music, and sports have on youth and the importance for African countries to develop more pan-African based cultural, artistic, sporting, and entertainments events in order to reach the African Union 2063 Goal, which to him is translated in African Union 2033 Goal.
