Year of Return: I’m here to inspire – WWE’s Kofi Kingston

Born Kofi Sarkodie-Mensah, the first Ghanaian and African to become WWE Champion arrived in Accra on Thursday, 30 May 2019 and is expected to depart on Sunday, 2 June 2019.

African-Americans with Ghanaian descent are expected to return to the country as a means to boost tourism and ensure that Ghana’s hard-won pan-African reputation is not lost.

During his stay, Kofi Kingston would meet President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, visit both his paternal and maternal hometowns in Ejisu and Atwima Techiman, and the Manhyia Palace, where he would pay homage to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene.
