The year 2019 has been dubbed the ‘Year of Return’ by the Ghana Government to mark 400 years since the slave trade ended.
Many African Americans are expected to visit Ghana to commemorate the occasion.
The likes of Boris Kodjoe visited Ghana as part of programmes earmarked by the Ghana Tourism Authority aimed at inviting persons of African descent to Ghana.
According to the Marketing Manager of Royal Senchi Hotel, Emmanuel Kojo Mensah, Boris Kodjoe’s visit to his facility was a great endorsement.
“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. This is a big endorsement you can not buy with money or get but it takes a good name and goodwill and this is very important for Ghana and our tourism industry”.
He also hinted that World Music Power Couple, Jay Z and Beyoncé are likely to visit his facility when they touch down in Ghana.
“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.
