American actor, Michael Jai White, has been enstooled as a chief by the Akwamuhene Odeneho Kwafo Akoto III at a colourful ceremony on Wednesday.
The Hollywood actor received the stool title of ‘Odupong’ meaning “a tree firmly rooted” at the Bogyawe Palace, Akwamufie.
The ceremony also saw Bozoma Saint John, the US-born Ghanaian who was until June 2018, the Chief Brands Officer of Uber, conferred with an honorary title.

Fellow Hollywood actor Boris Kodjoe who was also present at the durbar ground, tried joining in the 'adowa' dance.
The festival was chaired by The Office of His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo and presented by the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Business Development and the Office of Diaspora Affairs.
The Full Circle Festival was established to honour our ancestry by celebrating our heritage and generational legacy.
The star-studded guests will experience Ghana for its beauty, vibrant culture, compassionate people, and wonderful food.
Meanwhile, some angry Muslim youth have attacked the church of Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Ministry International.
The youth numbering about 50, stormed the Odorkor premises of Owusu-Bempah's church in cars and motorbikes on Wednesday afternoon in a bid to attack him for prophesying the death of the national Chief Imam, Osman Nuhu Sharabutu.
In a video published on YEN.com.gh, the youth, some of whom were wielding machetes, could be seen trooping to the church premises of Owusu Bempah with some vandalising items including a giant sign post in front of the church building.
