It’s a reunion 25 years in the making — WWE Champion Kofi Kingston returned to his home country of Ghana on Thursday … and the people went CRAZY FOR HIM!!!
There was dancing, there was drumming, it was a full-fledged PARTY — and for good reason, just last month, Kingston became the first African-born wrestler to EVER win the WWE Championship!!
Kingston was swarmed by fans and reporters from the second he stepped off the plane at Kotoka International Airport … the first time he’s returned to Ghana since 1994, the year he moved to the U.S.

Kofi has talked for years about wanting to return to Ghana — especially after watching video of his uncle (who lives in Ghana) throwing a raging party to celebrate his Wrestlemania victory.
“This video is a reminder of why we do what we do: to lift spirits and inspire others. I am so grateful to be in a position to do so,” Kofi wrote back in April.
“Last time I was in Ghana was in 1994. I think it might be time to go back and visit…”
Well, he delivered on his word … and now Kofi is getting the ultimate VIP treatment in Ghana, where he’s even scheduled to meet with the President!!!
How cool is that?!!
