Who else was loving how Africans abroad came home to the motherland during the holidays? Now that the Christmas and New Year festivities are over, how about we reminisce on how many of your favorite stars kept it lit on social media with their holiday post in the motherland.
First up, Insecure star Yvonne Orji kept it Ghana-Naija style. The actress not only shared posts of her in her home country Nigeria but also in Ghana in the company of Uber boss lady Bozoma Saint John.
Dear future uzzzzband, this is me as the sister of the groom…imagine me as the bride… #TakeYourTimeAndHurryUp • Special shoutout to @deolasagoeofficial for this custom gown.

Visiting the slave castle at Cape Coast, you could feel the hate, the resolve, the despair, the screams, the fortitude and the will to survive of those who came before. This is a history than can never be forgotten and has to be acknowledged. It must be uncomfortable to bear witness because those who witnessed knew no comfort. I stand at the door of return because return we must. Painful as it might be, but we return to the seas for those forever lost in it. Akwaaba – Welcome. #NothingWasEverTheSame #PleaseDontEverTellUsToGetOverIt #NeverForget #ThisIsAmericanHistory #ThisIsEuropeanHistory #ThisIsAllOfOurHistory
Dzzaddy Kofi Siriboe and his brothers Kwame Boateng and Kwesi Boakye were apparently in Ghana for the second time in a row.
This is a fave picture of mine. The comfortable nature of the kids with @kwameboateng and @kwesiboakye tells a story of how they have truly bonded with these kids. 2nd year in a row sharing our Christmas with the children of Great Mission International Childrens home. What a joy! . . . Thank you to our @iyec partners for helping us arrange and co-ordinate everything. #giveback #christmas #christmasparty #orphanage #joy #peace #gifts #africa #myafrica #diasporadialogues #diaspora #k3pr #holidayseason #koshiemills👑

Finally, How lovely did Boris Kudjoe, Nicole Ari-Parker and their lovely kids look in GH
Looking out on a great 2018. I'm making a commitment to doing my best every single day as a man, husband, and father. Started today teaching my kids about culture and history by exposing them to it. We took them to Makola market, the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, and the Independence Arch. It makes me so happy watching them enjoy a country and its people I love. #Ghana #GratefulEveryDay #MetSoManyBeautifulPeopleToday #TheKidsLearnedHowToHaggle #NicoPaidWayTooMuch #SophieGotHerBraceletForFree #MadeMeTakeASelfieWithTheWoman #SmartGirl #LikeHerMommie #AiteoCAFawards2018
