In photos published by the Ghana Tourism Authority, Usher toured a basic school in the country’s capital alongside singer SZA who is also billed to perform at the Global Citizen Festival.
The students who met up with Usher couldn’t hide their excitement as they interacted with the star and also took turns in taking some photographs with the ‘U Remind Me’ hitmaker.
“Today, the Global Citizen Festival Artiste Usher and Sza visited BASICS International and toured the Chorkor community. BASICS International is an education-focused NGO in Chokor, Accra, engaged in making education and childcare accessible in vulnerable communities. The organisation is also one of Global Citizen’s regional response partners for the End Extreme Poverty NOW campaign for Global Citizen Festival: Accra,” the Tourism Authority wrote.
