Otumfuo Osei Tutu is billed to participate in the 2022 ‘Memphis in May International Festival’ which is devoted to honouring the culture and heritage of Ghana, from May 3 to 9, 2022.
A special event, known as the Black Star Black Tie Gala, will be held in the city on May 6 to celebrate Otumfuo’s 72nd birthday and the artistes, including Michael Owusu Addo, known in showbiz as Sarkodie; Kwame Nsiah-Apau, known professionally as Okyeame Kwame, and Livingstone Etse Satekla, better known as Stonebwoy, will stage a concert to celebrate the King on the day.
The performance is being facilitated by the E ON 3 Group, KGL Group and KGL Foundation.
Last Monday, the Executive Chairman of E ON 3 Group, Richard Adjei Mensah Ofori-Atta, led Sarkodie and Okyeame Kwame to the Manhyia Palace to officially inform Otumfuo of the decision to honour him with a performance in the US.
Also at the palace were the Founder and Executive Chairman of GLICO Group, Kwame Acheampong-Kyei, and the Managing Director of the State Housing Company (SHC), Kwabena Ampofo Appiah.
