This is Rita Marley. Wife of the Late musician Bob Marley. She has lived in Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ for over 20 years. She moved to Ghana after Bob's death alongside Bob family in the 1990s.

Became a Ghanaian citizen in 2013. Changed her name to Nana Afua Adobea, a Ghanaian name.

She owns a house in Aburi, Ghana. The thing is that she really didn't want to relocate to Ghana. Her first choice was Badagry in Nigeria.

In the process of trying to acquire the land, all kinds of Levies kept propping up from everybody concerned. Documents to enhance her stay in the country were made difficult. Frustrated, she opted for her 2nd choice - Ghana.

Badagry people were too myopic to understand the benefit of having such an Icon living amongst them.
The Tourism Potentials and the ripple effect of more stars like her from the Diaspora following in her footsteps, which of course eventually happened!

You don't have to be blind to be BLIND!
