Celebrities in the western world have taken a keen interest in promoting African culture, especially black communities.

Promoting African culture as a people goes far beyond mere marketing, which is why many black communities in the United States pay homage to “African heritage.”

The Ghanaian government launched an initiative in 2014 allowing people to set aside Fridays as a day to promote and wear locally made fabrics.

The “National Friday Wear Programme” aimed to project the uniqueness of local Ghanaian fabric and designs.

One interesting thing that people living in the western world do when they visit Ghana and other African countries is to take the cultural artifacts and materials with them.

These days, many Hollywood celebrities are not looking to grace various events wearing locally made prints in Ghana and other African countries.

Black Hollywood stars have seized the opportunity to do more with their looks than just appear stunning on a red carpet.

Rihanna was first captured wearing the African print at the White House in 2014, during President Barack Obama’s second term.

Other personalities like director Ava DuVernay and actresses Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, Zendaya, Issa Rae among others also followed.

In today’s list, GhanaWeb took a look at five Hollywood stars who rocked the African print at events.

Check out the list below:

Beyonce

Rihanna

Tracee Ellis Ross

Solange Knowles
