NBA star Dwyane Wade and famous actress Gabrielle Union-Wade arrived in Ghana in grand style in an event that has since received media attention in the beautiful West African Country.

They were seen shortly after landing at Kotoka International Airport on Monday, October 31, 2022.

The couple was traveling with their three-year-old daughter Kavya.

Over the years, Ghana has become a hub for travelers as the year draws to a close with many festivals in the country at this time.


Gabrielle is now known by the Ghanaian people as Akosua Sappho while her husband is also known as Kwesi Sappho, both names given to them by locals who enjoyed their company.

The couple received their Ghanaian names after honoring Diallo Sombre, CEO of the Adinkra Group, as Nkosuohene (head of development) in Nyame Bekyere, a municipality between Adawso and Koforidua in the eastern region of Ghana.
