American action film star Wesley Snipes says he is on his way to Ghana.
The actor, famous for his hit movies like Blade, Demolition and Passenger 57 among others, disclosed his intention to visit Ghana when he met Gabby Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the NPP and cousin to President Akufo-Addo, and said: “I am on my way to Accra.”
In a video seen on social media, Wesley detailed that he always had Africa at heart, emphasizing on his relationship to the continent, during a conversation with Gabby which has been taped.
In his speech:
“You know that my teacher Dr John Hendrik Clarke, the great grandmaster sat many a days under many conditions the great grandmaster Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana and they told me as a grandson of them… always keep Mother Africa in the heart, a united Africa. So to honouring my elders, I am on my way to Accra. The Daywalker is coming to Accra…,” he said in the video.
Snipes visit has been linked to the “Beyond The Return” initiative which has been introduced by the government as the follow up to the “Year Of Return” campaign which has seen several Hollywood stars visiting Ghana last year.
Wesley was among several personalities who met with President Akufo-Addo in Davos, Switzerland, where the President is participating in the 50th-anniversary celebration of the World Economic Forum Annual Meetings. Watch the video below.
