Otumfuo's 72nd birthday will feature performances by Sarkodie, Okyeame Kwame, and Stonebwoy.

Sarkodie, Okyeame Kwame, and Stonebwoy will perform at the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II's, 72nd birthday celebration.

On May 6, 2022, the event will be held in Memphis, Tennessee, United States of America (USA).

From May 3 to 9, 2022, Otumfuo Osei Tutu is scheduled to appear at the 'Memphis in May International Festival,' which will honor Ghana's culture and heritage.

On May 6, a special event known as the Black Star Black Tie Gala will be held in the city to commemorate Otumfuo's 72nd birthday, and artists such as Sarkodie, Okyeame Kwame, and Stonebwoy will perform a concert to honor the King.

Last Monday, Richard Adjei Mensah Ofori-Atta, Executive Chairman of E ON 3 Group, led Sarkodie and Okyeame Kwame to the Manhyia Palace to officially inform Otumfuo of the decision to honor him with a performance in the United States.

Kwame Acheampong-Kyei, Founder and Executive Chairman of GLICO Group, and Kwabena Ampofo Appiah, Managing Director of the State Housing Company (SHC), were also present at the palace.

The E ON 3 Group, KGL Group, and KGL Foundation are assisting with the performance.

Mr Ofori-Atta, who briefed Otumfuo, stated that the artistes were honored to be a part of Otumfuo's 72nd birthday celebration.

"Your grandchildren have decided to make your birthday special by performing in Memphis," he explained to Otumfuo. He stated that the performers would make the birthday celebration worthwhile.


On GLICO, Mr Ofori-Atta stated that the company had insured the Otumfuo Commemorative Gold Coins, which were being sent from Ghana for presentation to the City of Memphis and the festival organizers.

SHC will also use the festival to solicit foreign investment in Ghana's housing sector.

In response, Otumfuo thanked the performers for the honor.

He stated that Sarkodie and Okyeame Kwame had shown interest in his activities over the years and that he appreciated what they were doing.
