Conan O’Brien, the famed American comedian and media practitioner, was in Ghana months ago sampling the nation’s culture, history, and people, in commemoration of the “Year of Return” movement.
O’Brien’s visit, which was at the invitation of the Embassy of Ghana, saw Team Coco’s headman take to key historic sites in the country, engage in a number of activities with a number of Ghanaian celebrities including calling on popular cooking show, MacBrown’s Kitchen, a quick witty cultural lesson with comedian Kalybos, trips to Kumasi, the Osu Castle and beach, the Makola market, as well as interaction with the buoyant movie poster and coffin-making industries here.
2019 marks a significant year in the history of Africa’s diaspora as it commemorates 400 years of the commencement of the infamous trans-Atlantic slave trade. O’Brien adds to an extensive roll of global stars who are trooping to the country that Nkrumah-founded nation that has become a beacon of democracy and an economic powerhouse on the continent.
