American rapper, Meek Mill has revealed that he will be on his way to Ghana once the world gets past these trying times of Coronavirus.
His intention for coming isn’t known yet anyway.
The Dream Chaser CEO just said he will be coming when COVID-19 is over.
“I wanna go get o Ghana and ride when this over!”, he tweeted.
Possible reason for Meek Mill’s coming?
Meek Mill could be visiting the mother-land in other to link-up with our local musicians. Taking into consideration how Afro-beats is making waves across the world, most musicians outside Africa want to tap into the growing market of the music genre.
Artistes he could possibly link up with include, Shatta Wale especially because of his song with Beyonce, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, King Promise, just to mention a few.
Another possible reason could also be to understand the history of the slave trade.
Ghana became popular for this after the ruling Government implemented the ‘Year of Return’ project that saw blacks across the world coming back home to know about their roots.
What could be preventing Meek Mill from coming to Ghana now?
The only thing keeping Meek Mill from coming is the border closure across the world as a preventive measure against the spread of Coronavirus.
Ghana, for instance, has extended the closure of Ghana’s borders by another month following the increase in the number of confirmed cases of the global pandemic, the Coronavirus.
The President, Nana Addo made this known yesterday.
Speaking at a closed-door celebration of the Labour Day, organized by the state broadcaster GBC in conjunction with the Trade Union Congress (TUC), the president disclosed that the extension will be effected on Monday, May 4 at 1 am GMT.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo added that the decision was needed to manage the current local cases recorded in the country.
“…Government has taken the decision to extend further the closure of our borders for a month, effective 1 am on Monday 4th May until Sunday 31st May. We know that the overwhelming majority of positive cases came from travellers or contacts of travellers, so we have no option than to keep our borders closed until we are confident that we have put in place measures to prevent travellers from importing the virus.
“These restrictions cannot, and will not be a permanent feature of our lives. But they are for now essential for our survival,” he added.
