Ghanaian Twitter influencer, Bongo Ideas has reacted after photos of Otumfuo’s visit to Buckingham Palace surfaced online.
In a Twitter post, the social media critic chastised African leaders for their love of worship and power. Bongo’s comment follows after a servant of Otumfuo was captured inside the palace with a royal umbrella.
He wrote; The typical African leader loves to be worshipped so much that he has an umbrella over him in an enclosed room. Wei? Even King Charles with all the military power at his disposal needs no one around to make him feel kingly. But Manhyia Mansa Musa thinks otherwise. Piaaaaawwwww
The Asantehene and his wife were invited by the Royal Family to witness the Coronation of the King. They left Ghana on May 3, 2023.
They will assemble at Westminster Abbey on Saturday for what is expected to be a feast of pageantry marking the first coronation in over 70 years.
The Asantehene’s Ahenkorah, meaning servant, was spotted inside the palace with the royal umbrella.
