Star Wars star, Michaela Coel and more spend holidays in Ghana


Star Wars star, Michaela Coel and more spend holidays in Ghana

It seems that Ghana was a hot destination spot for many world stars, who wanted to escape from the winter abroad, this Christmas.

Amongst them were British actress, Michaela Coel, who played the role of a Resistance Monitor in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as Kelly in Monsters: Dark Continent.  In 2016, she won the BAFTA for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme and Breakthrough Talent for the television series Chewing Gum, which she created and writes while portraying the lead role.

Michaela plays a space crew member in Black Mirror, the fourth season of which premiered recently on Netflix.

As Shania, the character modeled after Star Trek’s iconic Nyota Uhura, Coel travels through space alongside Jimmi Simpson and Billy Magnussen. The ragtag group of intergalactic crusaders known as Space Fleet brings aboard Nanette (Cristin Milioti), the newest member of the crew, and are led through the planets by their fearless leader, Captain Daly, in “USS Callister,” a Star Trek-inspired space romp.

Although she kept her visit to Ghana, the birth place of her parents, a bit on the low, my friends hinted me of her visit during the period.

Speaking of her trip to Ghana, she told W-Magazine“Yes! That’s where my family is from. I did amazing things like bond with my dad, which had never happened before like that. I’m going back, actually. My family is about an hour from Accra.”

Other stars who touched based with Ghana include

British-Ghanian rapper, singer and entrepreneur  Kwasi Danquah, better known by his stage name Tinchy Stryder.
