Some Ghanaians online are questioning why their President, Nana Akufo-Addo, had a meeting with American rappers, Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa.
There are a series of photographs of the three men at a meeting, in some of which they can be seen bumping fists to greet one another.
They discussed how to bridge the gap between musicians in Ghana and the United States, as well as how to promote Ghana’s musical talent, according to Beyond The Return’s Instagram page.
Beyond the Return is a follow-up campaign of Ghana’s Year Of Return in 2019, which encouraged members of the African diaspora to visit the country.
One person commented on Twitter that the president was meeting “unnecessary people” and should “get better things do”.
Another said it was a waste of time as it wouldn’t lead to anything.
A third person said it was an ambitious plan: “Bridge the cap between Artists in Ghana and US? Geez man, that’s. Long stretch! Start with bridging the gap with Ghanaian Artists and Other African artists first! Grabbing for straws.”
Both Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa have been posting about their trip to Ghana on Instagram.
