Michael Blackson Is Building A School In His Hometown In Ghana

Michael Blackson wants to give back to his hometown in Ghana. In an Instagram post, the comedian announced plans to open a school in the village where he grew up to help the children in the local community get an education.

Blackson will be working with Afrobeats star Fuse ODG, who has also helped with school construction projects with other stars including British rapper Stefflon Don and social media personality and activist Chaka Bars in Ghana, Jamaica, and the Democratic Republic of Congo through I Heart Africa to help raise money for the various projects to help children from impoverished areas receive a quality education without leaving the neighborhood where they grew up.

Blackson and Fuse ODG announced that construction will be completed by next fall. “Next September you’ll have a school, OK?” said ODG to Face2Face Africa. “You’re standing in your classroom right now. School is coming very soon, OK? Uncle promise you. School is on its way.”

“Only thing that matters to me are the kids,” wrote Blackson on Instagram. “Education can help them understand everything so I’m building them a school in my village. By the grace of God they will be in class next year.”
