American rapper Chance The Rapper has arrived in Ghana as he had previously promised in 2019.

In a video that has gone viral, he was spotted with fellow rapper Vic Mensa who has been in Ghana for a while.

Unlike his other African Americans from the diaspora, including singer Ari Lennox and Vic Mensa, who came to experience ‘Detty December’ in Ghana, Chance the Rapper arrived after ringing in the new year in the US.

“We are here,” Chance was heard saying in the video. Rapper Vic Mensa also tagged them Ghana boys.

In 2019 at the height of the ‘Year of Return’ campaign, Sarkodie, after winning the Best International Flow award at the BET Hip-hop Awards, urged people in the diaspora to visit Ghana.

“I think Africa has always had it, and it is about that time. This year is the Year of Return, and I will urge each and every one of you here to take a trip back home. When you’re coming to Africa, choose Ghana,” he said.

Following his speech, Chance The Rapper tweeted, “Year Of The Return #Ghana #HipHopAwards19.”

This sparked speculations, with many wondering if the Rapper would genuinely make an appearance in the country.
