The Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, has explained why Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, was appointed ‘Year of Return’ ambassador few months ago.

According to the Minister, Barbara Oteng Gyasi, the artiste, known in the music industry as Sarkodie, was appointed because of his contribution towards the ‘Year of Return’ campaign.

“Sarkodie was appointed a ‘Year of Return’ Ambassador in view of his contribution to the ‘Year of Return’ campaign when he received his award in the United States. He entreated everybody to visit Ghana as part of the ‘Year of Return’,” she noted.

“For that singular effort on such a major international platform we felt that he marketed the ‘Year of Return’ project and therefore he deserved to be made ambassador for the project. Unfortunately, it came at the tail end of the ‘Year of Return’,” she said.

Reacting to his impact as an Ambassador, the Minister said “we are going to involve him very much in activities which are outstanding for this year and we will actually draw a programme for him in the ensuing projects that we are going to launch as a follow-up to the ‘Year of Return’.”

The Minister also announced government’s plans to introduce a 10-year comprehensive project to be launched in January 2020 to sustain the ‘Year of Return’ drive.
