Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
American rapper, T.I arrived in Ghana with his wife and crew on Sunday, December8 as part of the Year of Return initiative by Ghana’s Tourism Ministry.
T.I, real name, Clifford Joseph Harris Jr touched down at the Kotoka International Airport amidst drumming and dancing.
The Year of Return initiative will see lots of African-Americans in the diaspora visit Ghana to experience and learn about their roots from Africa.
The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia.
The arrival of enslaved Africans marked a sordid and sad period, when our kith and kin were forcefully taken away from Africa into years of deprivation, humiliation and torture.
While August 2019 marks 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in the United States, “The Year of Return, Ghana 2019” celebrates the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic slave Trade who were scattered and displaced through the world in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
Meanwhile, American pop star, Cardi B, has also finally touched down in Ghana ahead of her Livespot X Festival performance which will be taking place later this evening.
The concert, which has an array of Ghanaian stars billed to perform alongside her will take place at the Accra Sports Stadium.
