The two, who trace their lineage to Ghana, returned to the country in July 2022.
The two artistes 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.
Taking to Instagram, Vic Mensa noted that “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.”
The musician added that “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 actualising that dream.”
