4. Samini

Musician Samini arrived in Canada to perform at his ‘Samini Live In Calgary’ show and has since been stuck in the cold.

While in Canada, the High-Grade Family & Music CEO, hosted and performed for his fans on the ‘Samini UNTAMED Virtual Concert’ which streamed on YouTube Live.

5. Pappy Kojo

After a successfully killing shows in Ghana last December, Pappy Kojo returned to Italy in January.

While there, he attended the Milan Fashion Week and had front row seats to most shows he was spotted at.

The joy of being away from Ghana will soon vanish and be replaced with anguish when COVID-19 broke.

No Ghanaian celebrity has advocated return back home as much as Pappy Kojo has. From constant tweets at the President to Instagram post, Pappy Kojo even had Sarkodie pleading on his behalf.

However, the pleas of these celebrities to return home have not gone to waste as President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has disclosed that Ghanaian nationals abroad will soon be evacuated back to Ghana.
The President, in his 10th nation update on COVID-19 on Sunday, May 31, 2020, eased restrictions on public gatherings but the country’s borders remain closed until further notice.
However, he indicated that “given that there are Ghana residents stranded abroad, a special dispensation is going to be given for their evacuation back to Ghana, where they will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols”.
Although the President didn’t give a definite date for the evacuation, it comes as good news that the musicians’ calls have been heeded.

“I’ve always wanted to create something that would be a collaboration between Nigeria and Ghana, and Ghana Jollof is a realization of that dream,” says Basketmouth. “From the cast to the crew, everyone gave of themselves to create a show deserving to be Showmax’s first comedy-drama from West Africa. We all can’t wait for the fans to see what we’ve cooked up.”

Ghana Jollof is directed by AMVCA nominee Diji Aderogba, whose debut feature film About A Boy won the Audience Choice Award at Nollywood Film Week in Paris, France.
