Veteran American actor Wesley Snipes will visit Ghana this year as part of government’s 2020 ‘Beyond The Return’ initiative to further attract Diasporans not to only visit but also invest in the country.
The actor who is otherwise known as Daywalker for his role in the award-winning film ‘Blade’, announced his visit saying, “I am on my way to Accra.”
“You know that my teacher Dr. John Hendrik Clarke, the great grandmaster sat many a days under many conditions the great grandmaster Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana and they told me as a grandson of them… always keep Mother Africa in the heart, a united Africa. So to honouring my elders I am on my way to Accra. The Daywalker is coming to Accra…,” he said.
He was captured in the video together with Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Wesley was among a number of personalities who met with President Akufo-Addo in Davos, Switzerland, where the President is participating in the 50th anniversary celebration of the World Economic Forum Annual Meetings.
