The Diaspora Affairs shared on Instagram that,
“The Diaspora Affairs, Office of the President supported this experience in Ghana; recognizing the importance of Arts, Culture, Music and the global diaspora engaging with Ghana. We see the Deputy Director, Dr. Nadia Musah with Kendrick as he prepares to conduct interviews following the release of his new album “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” which is already receiving rave reviews with fellow rappers like Eminem giving it incredible compliments.
This visit is significant because we encourage the Global African & Afro Descendant family to recognize Ghana as the ‘gateway to the ‘motherland” or ”the Black Mecca” where one can reignite their passions, inspirations and connect with people; where one can launch an album, a book, an exhibition, a culinary experience and much much more. To Kendrick Lamar, his beautiful family, his team and friends, and to our Diaspora we say Akwaaba!”
