Popular Ghanaian-American-Liberian movie actor and comedian Michael Blackson has already conquered the comedy world, giving us skit after skit that made us appreciate his creative genius.
He is now set to take over the world in a different way: building schools in both his home countries of Ghana and Liberia.
On Friday, in a short tweet, the comedian tweeted “Liberia you are next”, few days after he commissioned a school in his hometown (Nsaba), a community in the Central Region of Ghana.
Liberia 🇱🇷 you are next pic.twitter.com/eRW2rC5vxg

Fans have started suggesting the areas the comedian should start with;
Hello, Mr. Blackson.
I appreciate your generosity to build an Academy in our country, Liberia 🇱🇷.
In this light, I would like to offer you the land space (and deeds) in my hometown; Monweh, Rivercess County.
Thank you for your consideration 🙏
