Chance the Rapper Returns to Ghana, Makes an Appearance at Free the Youth Flagship Store


Chance The Rapper, the Grammy award-winning American artist, has returned to Ghana!

In January of this year, Chance made his first visit to Ghana. He later announced plans to return with a group of friends in July 2022.

“In July, I'd like to return with a large group. I promise you'll feel right at home," he said in part of his tweet.

American rappers, Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper are in the country, this time, with about eight high school freshmen from Chicago in the US. They are expected to stay in Ghana for about 10 days as part of an educational travel experience.

"A year ago we had the idea to take a group of kids from Chicago to Ghana. There are some things about yourself that you can only understand by knowing where you come from. Our dream is to build bridges that cross the ocean of divide created by the transatlantic slave trade. Today we are one step closer to actualizing that dream." Vic Mensa captioned in a post.

Blac Volta, a nightlife blogger, posted a video on Instagram of the "We Go High" rapper having a good time with some friends at "Alley Bar" in Osu, Accra.

Chance visited several sites and events during his first trip to Ghana. His visit to a church on Sunday morning, January 9th was one of his activities that sparked national attention. His family built the church where he worshiped, according to an Instagram post. In addition, he revealed that his family has constructed a school in Jamestown.

He also collaborated with a number of artists, including Darkovibes, Sarkodie, King Promise, and M.anifest. He was also present at the Free the Youth Flagship store in Ghana where he debuted his merchandise in collaboration with the brand.

The trip, according to the rapper, was both rewarding and eye-opening. "Accra, thank you, you saved my life" he said in a post.
