Ghana since time immemorial has always been blessed with some wonderful talents who have over the cause of the decades made the nation proud in the world of Arts industry. Names like Osibisa, Rocky Dawuni and Sarkodie in recent times resonate through the world and bring pride to the Ghanaian.
While some stayed behind to nurture their talents and leave an everlasting legacy that would be foretold for decades to come, some simply sold their talent for traveling visas, vanished into the diaspora and were never to be heard again, whiles the few who later returned to the country and made an attempt to revive their career failed spectacularly.
We take a look at some wonderfully talented Ghanaians who in spite of all the fame and glory they enjoyed, decided to live as illegal immigrants in search of residency in other countries and are now out of sight or struggling to resurrect their careers.
Once upon a time in the late 80s, through the 90s to early 2000s, Samuel Kwadwo Buabeng, popularly known as Bishop Bob Okala, was by a mile the finest and most popular comedian in Ghana.
There was hardly any comedy and concert that did not have him on bill. He dominated the screens for years and made people fall on the ground with laughter. He was the star of the once famous Key Soap Concert party which aired on GTV till the early 2000s. Bishop Okala to the surprise of many, left the shores of Ghana to live in Europe in the late 90s living behind all the fame and stardom he enjoyed. His departure according to many was as a result of some rape allegations leveled against him.
He later returned in the early 2000s after almost a decade of absence in a bid to revive his career. He got a few gigs and stared in a few series, most notably Barber and Shoe Shine Boys. However he found it hard to hit the stardom and limelight he had once enjoyed prior to his departure from the country. He passed on to eternity on 13th March 2016 after collapsing on stage during a Joy Daddy concert in the eastern regional capital, Koforidua.

C.E.O of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah has described Reggae/Dancehall musician Stonebwoy as a ‘lost sheep’. He made the statement Friday, May 18, after quashing a confusion that recently erupted at Zylofon Music imprint.
Stonebwoy broke the news about the end of the confusion via social media yesterday and asked his fans to throw their weights behind the record label.
He shared a photo with NAM 1 with the caption: “At The End Of The Day Peace Will Prevail,Progress Shall Reign And All Things Shall Work Together For Good.. I’ll Borrow Words From This Noble Man @mn_appiah With Whom This Revolution started.. #GhanaShallProsper.

He took to Twitter to say: “”…And who amongst us, blessed with 1000 sheep, when one goes missing…” refer; the parable of the good shepherd. JESUS CHRIST is the goodshepherd #ChristinyouthehopeofGlory.”
