Ghanaian-American rapper Vic Mensa is giving back to his father’s homeland of Ghana as he co-headlines the Black Star Line Festival. Mensa, née Victor Kwesi Mensah, will be teaming up with his dad to provide clean drinking water to three villages in the West African country.
“We’re building 3 boreholes in different communities in Ghana to provide clean drinking water — the first being the Asokore Zongo in Koforidua where my family lives, which is already built,” the 29-year-old rapper said.
As Mensa is completing his philanthropic efforts in the Black Star of Africa, he will also be co-headlining the music festival with Chance The Rapper, Erykah Badu, Jeremih, T-Pain, Tobe Nwigwe and more on Friday (Jan. 6).
