Ron Kenoly, the special guest at the 25th anniversary of Harvest Praise, has made mention of his desire to become a citizen of Ghana 🇬🇭.
When he presented for an audience of over 4,000 Christians at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), he shared these recent insights. The American worship leader announced his plans to obtain a residency visa and become a citizen of Ghana while speaking with 3 Entertainment during the yearly event hosted by Harvest International Ministries.
“My purpose in being here is to become a resident of Ghana and eventually become a citizen of Ghana,” he said to 3 Entertainment. “For the last week, I’ve been filling out forms and documents to gain residency and eventually to be your brother, a Ghanaian citizen.”Ron Kenoly
When asked why he was returning to his ancestral country, Kenoly explained that he thinks Ghana is one of the welcoming nations in terms of people and societal conditions. Those who have lived in the diaspora are the most welcome there according to him.
Kenoly, who made his first trip to Ghana in 1997, learned about his heritage and was able to trace his ancestors back to Elmina in the Central Region. He stated that this is where his ancestors came from and that he is now making a return home.
Since then, he has made other trips to Ghana, including one in 2011 when he headlined the Adom Praiz event among a select group of regional gospel performers. At the African worship with Sonnie Badu in 2013, he made a comeback and shared the stage alongside Ohemaa Mercy, Joe Mettle, Eugene Zutah, and others.
Be Glorified, Ancient of Days, For The Lord Is Good, and Anointing Fall on Me are just a few of the classic songs he is renowned for.
