According to him, he was happy to be back home to partly reconnect with his family in Ghana, as well as let his children experience Ghana for the first time.
“It is extra special for us to be here in Ghana, my father’s birth country. Anytime we are here, we feel at home. The kids are here for the first time and it has been an amazing experience,” Boris said in Accra at the time.
