Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie known in real life as Michael Owusu Addo has being made the Ambassador for the Year of Return.
The Government of Ghana gave a directive to the Ministry of Tourism to give this ambassadorial deal to Sarkodie, according to reports.
Minister of Tourism, Arts & Culture, Hon Barbara Oteng Gyasi also honoured Sarkodie with a Citation for his amazing works and promoting Ghana on the international stage.
All this happened at the ongoing Ghana Creative Industry Forum 2019 at the National Theatre.
Sarkodie earned this covetous nod after he recently promoted the ‘Year of Return’ agenda on an international stage — at the BET Hiphop awards 2019.
After he was declared as winner of the Best International Flow category, the rapper took to stage and said:
“I just want to say thank you to the Almighty God. To my family, this one is for my lil girl Titi…. I think Africa has always had it and it is about that time. This year is the Year of Return and I will urge each and every one of you here to take a trip back home. When you’re coming to Africa, choose Ghana.””
Congrats to him. This is well deserved!!!
