Steve Harvey, the famed American comedian, actor, author and broadcaster has arrived in Ghana as part of activities marking the government of Ghana’s “Year of Return.” initiative.
Harvey, who arrived in the country Thursday August 15 with his family, joins a tall list of famous persons from the diaspora who have made that all important trip to the motherland to remember 400 years since Africans were first shipped to the Americas to work as slaves, in what is known as the most egregious chapter in the history of the continent.
His trip has, so far, seen him meet Minister of Tourism, Babara Oteng Gyasi and the Year of Tourism committee at the W.E.B DuBois Centre in Cantonments, Accra.
Already, the likes of Naomi Campbell, Boris Kodjoe, Idris Elba, Bozoma St John, Edward Enninful, Anthony Anderson, EBRO, Samuel L. Jackson among others have made the all-important trip to the country, and more people are expected in what many predict will be a mass exodus back to Ghana.
Also on Mr. Harvey’s itinerary are trips to cultural touchstones and historical relics like slave castles on the nation’s shores.
