The couple arrived in Ghana with their daughter Kaavia James on Tuesday and attended the enstoolment ceremony of Diallo Sumbry as Nkosuohene (Chief of Development) in Nyame Bekyere, a community between Adawso and Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Diallo Sumbry is the first African American Tourism Ambassador of Ghana.
Gabrielle and Dwayne were honoured with Ghanaian names when they attended the ceremony, adorned in Kente clothes.
Because they were both born on Sunday, the couple was named Kwesi Sarfo and Akosua Sarfoa.
Gabrielle, Dwayne and Kaavia’s arrival in Ghana was met with a rousing welcome both at the airport and on social media.
At the airport, Wade and Gabriel were greeted with a display from a traditional dance troupe.
Chief Executive of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwasi Agyemang welcomed them by handing them sashes as a welcome gift.
This is part of the family’s world tour, which they dubbed the Wade Tour 2022 – African tour in celebration of Gabrielle’s 50th birthday.
They made their first stop at Zanzibar in Tanzania, before making their way to Ghana.
