This Is Ghana – A Danny Wonders Documentary

4th November 2019

Danny Wonders came to Ghana for the first time early January 2019, it was his first time since 24 years. Upon arrival he came to realize west Africa was nothing close to scary as people perceive. It wa home, it was filled with business, love and opportunity, he was then inspired to share this vision he was seeing with his audience, all with the sole purpose of drawing the people who have never been home to come back and also help commemorate “the Year of Return”.

“Year of Return” is a tourist and investment initiative designed to attract the African Diaspora as 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the beginning of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade in Jamestown, Virginia in September of 2018, Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo declared and formally launched the initiative which is currently being spearheaded by The Ghana Tourism Authority, the Office of Diaspora Affairs as well as The Adinkra Group of the USA. This is Ghana captures the beautiful aspects of Ghanaian culture and tourism in their many different forms. The documentary was made to “deliver a message to peers in the western world, to come back to Africa and be around their people because there is a lot to learn and a lot to grow from”.
