“I just want to say thank you to the Almighty God. To family, this one is for my lil girl Titi…. I think Africa has always had it and it is about that time. This year is the Year of Return and I will urge each and every one of you here to take a trip back home.” he said.

He also wore a silk floral bomber jacket from Ghanaian designer, Atto Tetteh to the event at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Georgia, United States

Ghana’s year of Return is a program spearheaded by Ghana’s government to reconcile people of black descent and the diaspora to Africa through series of events and programs. It was launched by Ghana’s President, Nana Akuffo-Addo earlier in the year to mark 400 years after the first slaves arrived in America.
