Kendrick Lamar, an American rapper, has arrived in Ghana ahead of the release of his new album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.
Dave Free, a longtime collaborator of Lamar, first shared the photos of himself, Lamar, and Renell Medrano, the photographer of Mr. Morale’s cover, in Ghana on Twitter.
Then a photo of the rapper eating in an Afro-Asian restaurant, Kozo GH, in Ghana also went viral after the restaurant reposted a photo of Kendrick Lamar on their Instagram account.
Lamar was seen quietly seated in the lounge area of the restaurant in Osu, Accra with his entourage.
The photographs drew a lot of attention and caused a lot of discussion on social media, particularly Twitter. Many of the responses reflected people’s excitement for Kendrick’s visit.
The uploaded pictures on Twitter drew the attention of Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s former CEO, who retweeted it on his timeline with the caption “Go 🇬🇭”
After his travel to Ghana in 2019 for the ‘Year Of Return,’ Jack Dorsey’s affection for Ghana has always been unmistakable. Dorsey chose Ghana as the headquarters for Twitter’s African operations. Two years have passed since his visit.
Lamar was also recorded hanging out with skateboarders in Accra’s Freedom Skate Park, apparently having a fun-filled private tour of the country.
The album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers is the follow-up to Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning album Damn, released in 2017. The tracklist is proving to be a global success. As fans devour the massive double album, many positive reviews are pouring in. It has proven to be Lamar’s most personal album to date. He talks about his sex addiction and his son’s name in it.
Lamar has since produced and directed the Black Panther soundtrack, headlined Coachella and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Championship Tour, won numerous Grammy Awards, and been nominated for an Academy Award.
