President Nana Akufo-Addo hosted a private party for a few African-Americans celebrities as part of the “Year of Return”
The purpose of this event was to make the personalities feel at home and celebrate their return to Ghana as part of the 2019 ‘Year of Return’ program.
The event was held at his Nima residence in Accra, Ghana on Dec 30th, 2019. Among them were Beyoncé’s mom Tina Knowles-Lawson and husband Richard Lawson, actress Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Campbell and Ghanaian-American businesswoman, Bazoma Saint John. Some of them have been in Ghana for weeks, taking part in various activities earmarked for the ‘Year of Return’ 2019.
The program was introduced by the government to encourage people from the Diaspora to visit Ghana and connect with their origin.
The President also launched an extension of the #YearofReturn, which he called ‘Beyond The Return, The Diaspora Dividend’.
