The premiere of the first-ever Caribbean-Ghanaian-Barbados starred movie, Joseph, saw many Africans in the Diaspora trooping in to witness a representation of Africans coming back to their roots after living in faraway lands for years.

The event, which was held at the newly constructed Accra Metropolitan Assembly Head Office on Saturday, December 7, was to highlight the story of a Jamaican doctor who has ancestry tied to Ghana through his Grandfather.

Among some of the dignitaries present at the premeiere of the movie were H.E. Dr Erieka Bennett, Head of Mission, Diaspora African Forum (DAF), and Dr Juliette Tuakali Vice-Chairperson of the Forum, Ambassador Nancy Quartey- Sam, Honorary Tourism Ambassador for Zimbabwe, as well as H.E. Charles Josop, Namibian High Commissioner to Ghana.

Also present were the Director-Diaspora at the office of the President, Akwasi Ababio, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwasi Agyeman.

Some Ghanaian actors who were present at the premiere include Mawuli Gavor, Mariam Owusu-Poku, Akorfa Edjeani Asiedu as well as Ernest Odame.

Joseph was produced by Step By Step Productions, a film company based in Barbados.

The production explored a story that crosses cultures and bridges the gap between Ghana and the Caribbean.

According to some actors who spoke exclusively to ABC News, the movie’s was not produced with the year of return in mind even though they have the same concept of Africans coming back to their roots.

They applauded the Government for introducing Year of Return to help men and women whose ancestors were taken away by slavery return back home.
