Ghanaian in Canada decides to come home

According to her, when she was in Canada, she once visited Ghana, and her grandmother told her to return home.

“When I came to Ghana eight years ago, my late grandma told me to return home. After I returned, I became very depressed in Canada. I was no longer happy. Eating became a challenge. So I returned in 2023 with my last child.”

Empress Ghadafi added that she was not in support of Canada’s position on LGBTQ and did not want her children to think it was on.

“I brought my youngest child because I do not support LGBTQ. In Canada, they make children believe they can do whatever they want. I want my last child to have Ghanaian values.”
