A week ago, American rapper and record producer, Chance The Rapper made his anticipated visit to the motherland. An experience he describes as ‘life-saving’.

On January 5th, news of Chance’s arrival in Ghana had social media talking and in a week, the rapper experienced more than he hoped for.

After the Chicago-based rapper was picked from the Kotoka International Airport by fellow rapper Vic Mensa, he excitedly shared his arrival with his followers on Instagram.

How Accra saved the life of Chance The Rapper?

The following days, Chance and his friends made a trip to the Adom Waterfall situated in Obosomase and located close to the source of the Tsenku waterfalls to enjoy Ghana’s lush scenery. He also made a stop at the Jubilee House, Freedom Skatepark, Gallery 57 inside Kempinski Goldcoast Hotel, the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park & Mausoleum, Front/Back, Republic Bar, and the Labadi Beach which he documented in the video below.

But the BET award-winning artist who was christened with the Ghanaian name “Nana Kofi Boa-Ampensom” didn’t only visit for fun. Over the weekend, the hitmaker went on a family history search.  According to a post on Instagram, the church where he worshipped was built by his family years ago.

He revealed that the leader of the church, whom he described as Bishop Nkansah, was an acquaintance of his great grandmother. Chance The Rapper revealed that his family has also built a school in Jamestown.

In another post, he wrote, “my great grandfather was a Pan Africanist and a captain under Marcus Garvey.”

Meeting and working with Ghanaian creatives in the music industry was another initiative Chana undertook during his week-long visit to the nation.

From working with Darko Vibes, King Promise, Black Sherrif, Manifest, and Sarkodie, Chance lent his voice and talent to songs Ghanaian music lovers can’t wait to hear when released.

Evidently, Chance The Rapper had an amazing time in Ghana as he’s been proudly advocating for more Diasporans to visit and experience the motherland too.

In a reply to singer Jeremih on IG, Chance hinted at coming back to Ghana in July with a much larger group and invited the singer to join.
