  • Steve Harvey and his family came to Ghana last week at the tail end of their vacation. A small group of us met with him at the W.E.B. DuBois Centre in Accra.

    So Steve Harvey comes to Ghana and these uncreative and low mental ingenuity Ghanaian officials of NPP never even brought him to Ghana Broadcasting Corporation to at least have him look around or interview him, he left and went to other countries like South Africa and Botswana who have built modern broadcasting studios and trained their journalist properly, to set up production over there. Every time you see Ghanaian media on RU-clip they look and sound like school children who are doing their own thing.
    Thank you idiot leaders of Ghana for continuing to sabotage Ghana, this is going to happen a lot. A lot of African Americans with lots of skills will visit Ghana and will leave with their skills to other African countries and set up shop over there because they offer better economic environment. Ghana is still a 3rd world country in all aspects that hasn't learn to develop itself, does not offer any modern facilities that could encourage anyone the possibilities of anything closer to the west.
    Does GBC even still exist? Its pathetic that these bozos of the NPP think they are improving Ghana but really wasting the Ghanaian tax payers money and time. Akuffo Addo is too old for any one to be cool around him. West Africa lags totally behind South African countries in a lot of infrastructure and what is worse is Ghanaians for example is full of talkatives and empty leaders. They are not utilizing the strean of the diaspora to their advantage, they are seeing them come in for photo ops and leave. Other Africa countries are watching and they will soon start wooing a lot of them to their countries with things Ghanaian government ought to do and have and its not doing or have. Most African diasporans will visit Ghana just because of the history of thier ancestors but will sneakly leave to other countries because of Ghanas lack of development and transformation.

      @BMo You're welcome.

      @Ivy Prosper Thanks for your polite correction of me on Harvey's visit but I still hold my criticisms of the Ghanaian leaders.

      What you don't know is that Steve Harvey did not want to do a press tour when he came to Ghana. So to suggest that he should have been brought to GBC is against what his plan was in the first place.

      He came with his own film crew to produce his own content, which he shared on his social media when visiting Cape Coast.
      Steve came to Ghana on his own dime. This was not taxpayers money as you say in your comment. Just as was stated in Botswana, they didn't pay for him to fly there, nor did the Ghana government. Steve was coming to Ghana on his own accord. He did what many people from the African American community do when they visit Ghana. He chose to go to the Slave forts/dungeons.

      And for your information, there are plans for him to do both a South African and a Ghanaian version of the popular game show, Family Feud. He was also sourcing business opportunities while he was in Ghana.

    My family is from Barbados on both my mother and my fathers side. My sister and I would like to do African Ancestry to find out where we come from, because as history has it, Africans were taken through or from West Africa and brought to different Caribbean Islands to work the plantation fields. I want to know what part of Africa I am from to better understand my history.

    Sefwi Obeng-Mim is a farming community in Juabeso District in the Western Region of the Republic of Ghana. The community is located in the middle of the Krokosue Forest Reserve under Sefwi Wiawso Traditional area, one of the biggest forest reserves in Ghana. The Obeng - Mim Stool lands have about 1,500 people, many who are subsistent cocoa farmers. Due to the location of the community, it is difficult in accessing the basic developmental project from the central government, such as providing safe and clean potable water.On behalf of the people and the elders, HRH Oheneba Nana Kwame Obeng II, Chief of Obeng-Mim Community, seeks your generosity to help to construct one borehole for the people to solve the lack of access to drinking water in the area. kindly Click here to support us.Thank You. www.gofundme.com/f/bring-clean-water-to-the-sefwi-obeng-mim?+share-sheet

      @Pierre Toussaint Its Ghana fault because the government need to produce more jobs for their residence. African American people are successful, they didn't get successful because of Ghana. If there are African American, it is because of their mother or father being a Ghanaian. I have a aunt and cousin there so please worry about making Ghana better instead of replying to my post. Everyone have their own experiences. I can say its your fault your country can't develop.

      People there all wear suits? What are the women in this video wearing? Are they wearing Western attire? Are all the men wearing suits? Have you been to Ghana or any African nation to see what outfit people generally wear? Besides why is that even an issue? You obviously have some mental problem because you keep at everything to complain about because of your sickening disdain for Africa. Steven Harvey and many black people in America now have a choice of place of residency. They have an escape from the horrors and injustice of America. So while Steve Harvey may not be relocating, so many black people have, and they are quite happy and at peace with their lives over there. Small minded fools like you think America is the all and all. You think America is heaven and that people must be grateful to live here. You think life in America is so great, fabulous, and so much better than everywhere else. Well guess what? The thousands of black people and even immigrants that have left America for Africa think differently. So fuck off with your repugnant white supremacists talking point, bitch!!!!

    Hello Ivy, I have just listened to your positive and thoughtful comment at the end of this video. You're right, I feel that it is such an amazing thing and that it should have happened decades ago! However, I think that it needs to be done intelligently rather than emotionally. At the moment, everyone is being motivated by emotion. I can definitely understand the emotion because I feel it myself and I have wanted this to happen for years. It just needs to be better researched and better organised. Ghanaians and African Americans need to understand each other and each other's cultures a lot better before they decide to live together or even 'marry' if you know what I mean.

    People wanting to move to any African country need to understand the local African culture and what is good for the Africans who are from there. Steve Harvey jokingly said to the little boy "If you drop out of school, I'm gonna kill ya." That joke is funny but it is more relevant in Western countries like America, Canada, the UK etc. etc. where I have heard black community activists encourage black kids to do well in school and to stay in school. This is because a lot of our young people in the Western world need to be persuaded to be high achievers and to finish their education. If you leave school early, life will be harder. BUT you can always get some type of job and if that fails, you can get financial support like Welfare or Social security. The culture in Ghana is different. Education is seen as the most important life-line. Not only that, African kids generally love school and they are willing to perform. People don't play around with their education and nearly everyone wants to go to university. The joke is funny but it sounds misplaced. What I am getting at is - if you get to know an African country properly, you will not make assumptions about that African society and you will have taken the time to understand the local culture and its people's sensibilities. Then, what you say to people and how you interact with them will be so much better because it will be more relevant and accurate!

      @new thought - Hi, I know. It does seem uptight and I know I should have mentioned the kids that do very well in the US. I am definitely aware of the youths who are successful academically. Congratulations to them. It is so impressive because black youths in the Western world arguably have more distractions and obstacles that could prevent them from making the right choices. I think it's harder to focus on your academic studies in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia etc. The fact that some African American kids manage to do so well amid the distractions that drag so many kids down, is my point. This is what Steve Harvey was referring to. In other words he was saying, "Don't give in to the distractions" and "Don't allow yourself to get pulled away from your studies." because it is so common. African kids in Africa don't always do well, but there is such a strong culture of doing well academically that it is a strange thing and almost a disgrace not to do well at school. It is not common but it is probably becoming more common. I wanted to get the point across that his joke wasn't relevant and showed that maybe he wasn't prepared enough for interaction with a Ghanaian kid/ African kid. Sometimes it's difficult to get a valid point across with the right balance. I don't mean to come across as uptight but I think it is crucial to point these things out because there has been so much misunderstanding between 'continental Africans' and black people in the diaspora for generations. It's usually because people haven't taken the time to understand the people that they are interacting with. Africans are lovely, generous and welcoming people but they are largely still quite conservative and can get offended by seemingly minor misunderstandings. Sorry it's so long!!!! :-)

      Pretty sure if he dropped out of school his dad would kill him.
      Just kidding ...you should maybe relax a bit though, you seem uptight just a little.
