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.
