Actor Boris Kodjoe Took 40 Famous Friends To Ghana For Christmas

Wonder why you say many famous black celebrities in Ghana this Christmas? 2019 was declared ‘A Year of Return’ by Ghana’s president Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo. But this wasn’t the only reason the American stars headed to Ghana. This year also marks the 400th Anniversary of the start of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

For the most recent Christmas and New Year break, quite a few American stars chose to jet set to Ghana. And this was all down to Ghanaian-German actor, Boris Kodjoe.

Kodjoe, whose Ghanaian father took him to the country to spend time with family in his youth, wanted his famous friends to experience the culture and that the country has to offer.

Among those who flew to the country for the festive season with Kodjoe and those who were their otherwise were Anthony Anderson, Jesse Williams, Bozoma Saint John, Rosario Dawson, Diggy Simmons, Djimon Hounsou and Jidenna.

Idris Elba, Tarrus Riley, Naomi Campbell, Edward Enninful and Ozwald Boateng were all also in the country for the festive period.

In a video posted on Instagram ahead of the trip, Kodjoe said: “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 added: “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.

Ghana launched its Year of Return 2019 programme, an initiative to encourage members of the black diaspora around the world to come back to Africa, specifically Ghana, hence another reason why the majority of them made the trip.
