It’s that time of the year on the Ghanaian calendar known as the “Year of Return,” where influential personalities—usually blacks from the diaspora—flock to the nation to experience the culture and reconnect with their roots.
The newest visitors to the nation’s coast are well-known American basketball player Dwayne Wade and his wife, Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union.
The pair were photographed at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra with their daughter, Kaavia Wayde, where they received a hearty greeting.
It is unknown why they are there, but according to rumors, they are there to see Adinkra Group CEO Diallo Sumbry take office as Nkosuohene (Chief of Development) in Nyame Bekyere, a community in Ghana’s Eastern Region between Adawso and Koforidua.
They were dressed in off-white clothing and smiled for the cameras as they responded to applause from the crowd. Each of them was decked with the “Year of Return” saches that are typically worn by foreign celebrities when they visit Ghana.
Additionally, a group of “Adowa” dancers performed a captivating cultural show for them at the airport.
Watch the video of their arrival below.
