It was an incredibly high honor to be enstooled (crowned) a king of Akwamu in Ghana. I am now a Ohene (King) with the title of Nana Akoto lll, Odopon “The Tree With Strong Roots That Does Not Fear The Storm”. I was not expecting this as you can probably tell by the look on my face but I am truly proud to be a part of the Akwamu of Ghana. My wife @iamgillianwhite is now a Ohemaa (Queen) Queen Mother. It’s fitting because we both had our DNA tests done and both of our African ancestry is primarily West African/Ghanaian. I have come back home to the land my ancestors were taken from…and I will continue to represent and bring awareness to this beautiful land and rich culture.Awkabaa! 🇬🇭🤴🏾👸🏽🙏🏾 #yearofthereturn #AfricanKing #Ohene #Ghana #Africa #fullcirclefestival #michaeljaiwhite 😂🤴🏾👸🏽👑👑
This revelation by the actor did not go down well with some social media users, as most of them had their doubts and other misgivings. @uncle_mussy was excited and warned the actor to ensure that he channels his help to the needy and not the corny leaders.
” Beautiful and proud to see one of my martial art move icons in my home country Ghana..
ALSO hope these traditional leaders ain’t doing all that just to take funds into their pockets, that’s meant for the struggling rural areas………Bro make sure u helping the real needy in Ghana not all these corny leaders”
@blk_n_killinit questioned the basis of he being crowned king.
“Can someone tell me why they made him a King.
Are his ancestors royal”
