Ghanaian comedian and actor based in the US, Michael Blackson is constructing a school in Ghana. He says that he would do the same thing in Liberia and Nigeria. According to him, the school, Blackson Academy would be ready in 6 months.
Per the footage he covered, they have mounted the structure already. So, it’s left with the plastering and finishing. The ace comedian believes the real dons give back to their community after making it in life.
“You want to chill with the Big Boys? If you make it in life go back to your old community and make a difference, those kids looks up to you. Blackson Academy in Ghana will be ready in 6 months, next one will be in Liberia.”
In a follow-up video he shared, he revealed that the parents and guardians in his community can’t afford fees for their wards’ education. That’s the most pressing drive for him to set up the structure. Then, his audience who were watching could sponsor the wards one by one.

“Most of the parents in these villages can’t afford to pay for school for their kids and that’s why I’ve always dreamed of helping them out. To make sure it’s built right I had to bring on @cpsghana. Once I’m done building anyone can sponsor a kid to go to school, I’ll have more info in a few months. Thanks for all the support. Liberia and Nigeria you are next.”
A few minutes after the post, well-to-do Black stars in the diaspora started reacting as they affirm their support.
Notably, Damon Williams commented, “count me in Bro.” There had been several calls on the Blacks in the diaspora who are doing so well economically to help revamp the African continent.
Juliet Ibrahim, Reggie Rockstone and a few others in Ghana praised Michael for conceiving Blackson Academy.
Meanwhile, the ‘Modasuka’ comedian has been in Ghana since the beginning of the month. About a few weeks ago, he held a house party inside his plush mansion at East Legon, Accra. Interestingly, he came with his wife-to-be, the Cambodian model, Mz Rada Darling.
