Welcome to our family reunion – Dave Chappelle thankful to be in Ghana

American Comedian Dave Chappelle is seemingly enjoying his time in Ghana.

In a video going viral on social media, the comedian was heard thanking Ghanaians for their welcome and opening their arms to African Americans travelling into the country.

Speaking at the pre-event party ahead of his conversation with Chance The Rapper on Thursday, he stated that they have yearned to connect with their roots and could not be more grateful to be in Ghana.

Tagging the get-together as a family reunion Dave Chappelle thanked Chance and Vic Mensa for facilitating the Black Star Line Festi that has brought him and others to Ghana.

“We back home, and everyone from Ghana welcomed us. We couldn’t thank you enough. We longed to be back, we longed to be connected and now thanks to Chance (The Rapper) and Vic (Mensa) we all are, welcome to our family reunion,” he said.

Dave Chapelle added “everyone bear witness, we are all together, peaceful, happy and respected. That is the culture of this party.”

This comes nearly a year after he is interested in travelling to Ghana in the foreseeable future.

In a conversation with model Naomi Campbell on her podcast, in April 2021, the comedian said his decision was inspired by award-winning Soul singer Steve Wonder who said in an interview recently that he wants to relocate to Ghana permanently.

Dave Chappelle said he is interested in not only visiting Ghana but buying some properties and opening a comedy club in the country.

He said he got in touch with Naomi Campbell and Ghanaian British architect David Adjaye to help facilitate his plans.

Meanwhile, the comedian is expected to host an event alongside Chance The Rapper at the University of Ghana as part of the lineups for the Black Star Line Festi.

This will be followed by a musical concert on Friday, January 6.
