Here is Why all the Black Celebrities Chose Ghana for the Holidays

The Christmas and New Year holidays in Ghana have been truly critical and noteworthy. A significant bunch of stars in the diaspora trooped into the West African country to spend the season and their exercises via web-based networking media demonstrate they had an a great time!

This was basically made conceivable by Ghanaian-German on-screen character, Boris Kodjoe, who promised to visit his dad’s nation of origin amid the bubbly season with a portion of his prominent dark big name amigos.

“Being that my father was from Ghana and we visited my grandmother, my cousins and my uncles. Every holiday we had makes me really connected to our country,” he said in a video that was shared prior to his visit.

“That’s why I’m so excited to bring 40 of my famous friends, some of the world’s top celebrities to Accra in December, so they can meet the people, feel the culture, connect with the energetic heritage, they can relax on the beaches and tour the castles and then share their experience with the millions and millions of followers around the world,” he continued.

The decision to bring the dozens of celebrities to Ghana follows a request from the Government of Ghana in line with its Year of Return 2019 programme welcoming African Americans and the black diaspora to return to the country where their ancestors were kidnapped and enslaved in America some 400 years ago.

The Year of Return 2019 includes activities spread across the year starting from the visit of the African American celebrities funded by Ghana.

From those who touched the shores of Ghana courtesy Boris Kodjoe to those who independently joined in on the fun, Face2Face Africa shares with you some of the familiar faces who were in town.
