Sent by his mother, Kofi posted a video clip of his family in Ghana watching his WrestleMania bout, which concluded with a jubilant celebration. In seeing their reaction, the WWE Champion expressed being overcome “with pride and joy.”

My mom sent me this video clip from the small town of Techiman in Ghana. Last Sunday, my uncle had a gathering at his house where the townspeople could watch Wrestlemania. • In seeing this, I am overcome with pride and joy. I’m still blown away by how many lives we touched. This video is a reminder of why we do what we do: to lift spirits and inspire others. I am so grateful to be in a position to do so. • Last time I was in Ghana was in 1994. I think it might be time to go back and visit... • #wrestlemania #wwe #ghana #sankofa #yearofthereturn #inspire
“This video is a reminder of why we do what we do,” he explained, before noting that it’s been 25 years since he’s been to Ghana. “I think it might be time to go back and visit.” As they say, there’s no place like home.
