Notable Jamaican rapper, Popcaan, had a release of emotional catharsis during his visit to the Cape Coast Castle.
The unruly boss wept while he stood right at the entrance of the 'Door of No Return' at the Cape Coast Castle.
Born Andre Jay Sutherland, the Jamaican dancehall singer and songwriter arrived in Ghana to enjoy activities marking the Year of Return.
YEN.com.gh previously reported that Popcaan was hosted by his Ghanaian friend and business titan, Dr. Sledge upon his arrival and has since visited historic sites including the Cape Coast Castles to connect with the African continent.
During his visit to the slave castle, Popcaan broke down in tears after he was triggered by the imagery of the pains and struggles forefathers of African descent went through.
He posted photos of himself at the entrance of the Castle while urging people to educate themselves about the past and culture of their roots.
''This place and the story about it makes me very sad honestly…. #capecoastcastle GHANA read and educate yourself about your past and history♂️,'' Popcaan expressed with a teary emoji.
Cape Coast Castle is one of nearly forty ''slave castles'' or large commercial forts, built on the Gold Coast of West Africa (present-day Ghana) by European traders.
It was originally a Portuguese ''feitoria'' or trading post, established in 1555.
Popcaan laid a wreath in memory of the men and women who were compelled to endure the slave trade at the time.
In other stories, YEN.com.gh reported that while light and darkness should or cannot be yoked together, it appears the trends with modern Christianity affirms the opposite and the latest is the bold appearance of Nana Agradaa at Rev. Owusu Bempah’s church.
The outspoken female Ghanaian traditional priestess was recently spotted in the church of Reverend Owusu Bempah in a video gaining traction on social media.
Several reports say the popular traditional priestess decided to visit the church to worship and pray with him and his congregation.
