David Khari Webber Chappelle is an American stand-up comedian and actor. He is best known for his satirical comedy sketch series Chappelle's Show. After a hiatus, Chappelle returned to performing stand-up comedy across the U.S. By 2006, Chappelle was called the "comic genius of America" by Esquire and, in 2013, "the best" by a Billboard writer. In 2017, Rolling Stone ranked him No. 9 in their "50 Best Stand Up Comics of All Time".
In a video going viral on social media, the comedian was heard thanking Ghanaians for their welcome and opening their arms to African Americans travelling into the country. Tagging the get-together as a family reunion Dave Chappelle thanked Chance and Vic Mensa for facilitating the Black Star Line Festival that has brought him and others to Ghana.
“We back home, and everyone from Ghana welcomed us. We couldn’t thank you enough. We longed to be back, we longed to be connected and now thanks to Chance (The Rapper) and Vic (Mensa) we all are, welcome to our family reunion,” he said.
Dave Chapelle added “everyone bear witness, we are all together, peaceful, happy and respected. That is the culture of this party.” This comes nearly a year after he is interested in travelling to Ghana in the foreseeable future. Dave Chappelle said he is interested in not only visiting Ghana but buying some properties and opening a comedy club in the country. He said he got in touch with Naomi Campbell and Ghanaian British architect David Adjaye to help facilitate his plans.
