2019, dubbed the “Year of Return”, marks 400 years of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade and a lot of African Americans have taken it upon themselves to “return” to their roots in commemoration of the anniversary.
As part of this initiative, Boris Kodjoe led 40 other Black American Hollywood stars to the country a few weeks ago for tourism and philanthropic work.
Reports coming in from Emmanuel Kojo Mensah, the Marketing Manager of Royal Senchi Hotel, indicate that Beyoncé and Jay Z will be the next set of people to visit the country.
“ I am told that with the visit of Boris Kodjoe and the rest, people in the states are discussing the Royal Senchi Hotel because they have seen pictures videos and other images Boris and his guys took when they came to our facility.
Jay Z and Beyonce who saw and liked the pictures, I am told, are planning a visit to Ghana and for that matter the Royal Senchi Hotel. This year the Tourism Ministry says it is the Year Of Return and we are all up for it,” he said.
Boris Cudjoe and his friends from Hollywood resided at Royal Senchi when they came for their visit.
The ‘Year of Return”, earmarked by the Ghana Tourism Authority is aimed at inviting persons in the Diaspora to visit Ghana.
