List of top-rated celebrities who visited ‘December’s Mecca’, Ghana

Celebrities in Ghana December

You may just call it the new holy city. The rate at which the world converges in December at that spot each year is becoming a little more glaring.

Many foreigners of black heritage and diasporans have made it a pilgrimage to visit Ghana, now the most sought-after destination for revelers.

While some embark on this journey for ancestral reconnection (for Black Americans) while others see it as an opportunity to tour the land of rich heritage.

This year was no different as the yuletide has seen a myriad of familiar on-screen faces in the limelight walk the streets of Accra, Ghana.
