“So, as Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa went to meet Nana Addo when they came to Ghana, you people mean Sarkodie would be allowed to meet Joe Biden when he goes to the states? And what was the essence of that meet and greet” a social media user by name @_lawslaw posted.

Sarkodie is not from the USA he’s had no family there so y should he meet their president, besides Vic and chance are Ghanaian by blood, slavery made dem depart from us so it right for them to meet the president.— Coldboy🏀🦅 (@coldboyyyy) January 15, 2022
Did America declare Year Of Return and Beyond The Return? Are American artists chasing Ghanaian artists for features?— CJ 💫 (@MisterCujoe) January 15, 2022
The president is by his actions, encouraging more of them to come here to impact our industry…you have a problem with that?
Does Sarkodie have any American background/Heritage?….we are on a "return" agenda and as a country, encouraging the Gh diaspora to come back home. Look at it from that perspective!— Glorydays🇬🇭🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@andy_andyHRP) January 15, 2022
A son of the land comes back home to his roots,to discover his ancestorial lineage,to discover the beauty and and true essence of his past.— Roofman 👹🇬🇭🇺🇸🇩🇪 (@_Roofman2131gh) January 15, 2022

Only right that we accord him the honour of meeting our president.— Roofman 👹🇬🇭🇺🇸🇩🇪 (@_Roofman2131gh) January 15, 2022
You can't say same when it comes to Sark,Sark's visit to America has no significant meaning aside him promoting his music,but with Chance it's different,he didn't come to do music,he came back to his roots
