As a matter of fact most celebrities we see, love and admire are not from Ghana. This is because of the welcoming nature of many Ghanaians. Nigeria, one will day is the closest ally to Ghana. But the second closest ally is Liberia. This is because most of the celebrities we have around are from Liberia.
