Since the holidays are unfortunately over, how about we reminisce on what went down during the Christmas and New Year festivities.
It seemed that everyone and their mama in Hollywood/diaspora was in Ghana.
2019 marks 400 years since the beginning of the slave trade in West Africa. Thanks to Boris Kudjoe, Bozoma Saint John and the Ministry of Tourism’s Full Circle Festival initiative aimed at promoting tourism in Ghana and also reconnecting the diaspora with their African roots, your favorite stars such as: Rosario Dawson, Diggy Simmons, Ebro Darden, Gabby Sidibe, Ta’rhonda Jones, Michael Jai White, Anthony Anderson, AJ Johnson, Djimon Hounsou, Naturi Naughton, Bresha Webb among a host other stars were all living their best lives in Ghana.
The UK stars were not left out in all the holiday fun. British Stars such as; Edward Enninful, Naomi Campbell, Liam Payne, Idris Elba, Giggs, Sneakbo, Ozwald Boateng, Ray Blk, Raye, Yinka Bokinni, Reggie Yates, Manny Norte, Twin B, Clara Amfo also enjoyed Christmas and New Year the Ghana way.
Let’s catch up on a few snaps on socials:

It would not be a ‘Full Circle Festival’ without visiting the Cape Coast Castle.

4 GENERATIONS in one photo. My great grandma is 103. She is vivacious, full of fire and she was a SERIOUS business woman – she would bake cakes and sell, she would make bridal dresses and do hair, in 1983 a massive hunger famine, she was the main distributor of food all at the same time taking care of the neighbours children A WOMAN! . They call her Broni nana in her village because of me and WOW if it wasn’t for her fall 2 months ago she would still be washing her things and taking care of herself like the independent boss she is. 💔💔 Her blood is in my blood and this is the most beautiful New Years I could have asked for. I will make you so proud Granny Mary. Ghana forever will be my motherland because of this woman 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭
