American singer Usher visits Chorkor, Accra ahead of Global Citizen Festival

With a visit to the Chorkor village in Accra, it appears that the R&B artist is enjoying his time in the West African nation.

Usher and artist SZA, who will both perform at the Global Citizen Festival, were seen touring a basic school in the nation’s capital in pictures released by the Ghana Tourism Authority.

The pupils that met Usher couldn’t contain their enthusiasm as they talked to the celebrity and alternated snapping pictures with the “U Remind Me” singer.

Usher and Sza, two Global Citizen Festival performers, went to BASICS International today and took a tour of the Chorkor neighborhood. An NGO in Chokor, Accra, called BASICS International works to improve access to childcare and education in underserved areas.

As part of the End Extreme Poverty NOW campaign for the Global Citizen Festival: Accra, the organization is also one of Global Citizen’s regional response partners, according to a statement from the Tourism Authority.

Award-winning actor, dramatist, and activist Danai Gurira will serve as the event’s host. Berla Mundi, Joselyn Dumas, Michaela Coel, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Sabrina Dhowre Elba are some of the presenters that will be accompanying her.
