UN Migration Agency Appoints Ghanaian Rapper as Goodwill Ambassador to Promote Safe Migration

Ghanaian rapper and songwriter, Kofi Kinaata, has become IOM, the UN Migration Agency’s first Goodwill Ambassador to promote safe migration in Ghana. He will be supporting IOM’s advocacy and fundraising efforts, including educating young Ghanaians about the dangers associated with the journey across the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea to reach North Africa and Europe.

Kinaata will support IOM Ghana’s Aware Migrants Information Campaign through the release of a new song aimed at encouraging Ghanaian youth to value their lives and not take unnecessary risks in chasing illusionary greener pastures. The Aware Migrants Information Campaign is part of the Engaging West African Communities (EWAC) project funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.

From 20 to 21 November, Kinaata travelled to the Brong Ahafo Region with Sylvia Lopez-Ekra, IOM Ghana Chief of Mission, as his first official trip. He met with the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister; visited the Migration Information Centre (MIC) set up by IOM and currently managed by Ghana Immigration Service in the city of Sunyani; and visited a pilot farm established by IOM through the Ghana Integrated Migration Management Approach (GIMMA) project in Nkoranza. The farm employs young returnees and provides alternative livelihood generation for potential migrants among other activities. The GIMMA project is funded by the European Union and jointly implemented by IOM Ghana and the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS).
