American superstar Wesley Snipes has served notice he will be visiting Ghana.

This forms part of the government’s 2020 ‘Beyond The Return’ initiative aimed at attracting Diasporans to visit and also invest in the West African country.

The actor, who is widely known as Daywalker, for his role in the award-winning film ‘Blade’, announced his visit in a video. “I am on my way to Accra,” he said.

“You know that my teacher Dr. John Hendrik Clarke, the great grandmaster sat many days under many conditions the great grandmaster Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana and they told me as a grandson of them… always keep Mother Africa in the heart, a united Africa. So to honouring my elders, I am on my way to Accra. The Daywalker is coming to Accra,” Snipes added.

Wesley Snipes was among key listeners at a Ghana dinner held in Davos as the country’s finance minister Ken Ofori-Atta spoke on investment opportunities in Ghana.

Ghana’s president Akufo-Addo was with American billionaire businessman Robert Smith, Wesley Snipes, Ozwald Boateng, Kojo Annan and a number of important personalities at the event in Davos, Switzerland.

In this video, Wesley Snipes was captured talking about coming to Accra with Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to Otchere-Darko, they shared “ideas on how to leverage part of the multi-trillion dollar wealth of the African Diaspora to move Ghana and Africa.”

Ghana’s “Year of Return” program saw hundreds of African Americans visit the country to experience the history, culture and tradition upfront. It is planning to attract more investors into the country with another initiative dubbed: ‘Beyond The Return’ 2020.
