It is however not clear when the rapper, who is signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music label, will be coming to Ghana should he go ahead with his plan.
The Year of Return is an initiative aimed at marking 400 years since the first black slaves landed in Jamestown Virginia.
This initiative is urging all Africans in the diaspora to come back home, explore, learn and appreciate their roots.
Recently, rapper Sarkodie, in his acceptance speech at the BET Hip Hop Awards after winning the Best International Flow, urged African-Americans to come home as Ghana marks the Year of Return this year.
Already Ghana has seen an array of celebrities from the US visiting the country.
Names like Steve Harvey, Boris Johnson, Kofi Kingston, Nicole Ari Parker, Diggy Simmons, Micheal Jai White, Anthony Anderson (of Blackish), Rosario Dawson, Jidenna, Cynthia Bailey, Bozoma Saint John and many others.
Cardi B has also confirmed she will be coming to Ghana during the yuletide season.
