We would like to welcome President Kufuor from Ghana LIVE on the show - The Toyin Falola Interviews! He is often called the "Gentle Giant" of Ghana, and he led the country for 8 years leaving a strong legacy in the Star of Africa.
We welcome him as he shares his thoughts, opinions, and experiences with a new generation. We hope that you can join us!
