On March 26th, 2023, US Vice President Kamala Harris landed in Ghana for a three-day state visit as part of her travel to Africa. She will visit Tanzania on Wednesday and Zambia on Friday before returning to the United States on Sunday. In Ghana, she was greeted with a brief ceremony at Kotoka International Airport by Ghana Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.

Harris also created an official Spotify playlist of African music to commemorate her current journey around the continent. 

Ghanaian and Ghanaian-American artists such as Amaarae, Moses Sumney, and Black Sherif appear on the album, as do Tanzanian and Tanzanian-American artists such as Harmonize, Zuchu, and Alikiba, and Zambian and Zambian-American artists such as Chile One Mr. Zambia, Yo Maps, and Chef 187.
