Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has been spotted in a video exhibiting his dancing skills at the maiden edition of the Africa Premier Leadership Awards.
The event, held in Kumasi, in the Ashanti region, attracted the crème de la crème of public figures in society.
It was also an occasion to honour people who have played vital roles in areas such as peace, stability and the development of Ghana.
The Asantehene was the recipient of the ‘Pillar of Peace’ award for his immense role in these areas, especially with regard to leading the Committee of Eminent Chiefs to resolve the Dagbon crisis.
Dagbon, which has portions of its areas in the Northern, Upper West and Upper East regions of Ghana, has endured 16 years of conflict.
Ghanaians have meanwhile taken to social media to cheer the Asantehene on as he danced at the event:
Kaka referred to him as the King Solomon of our time.
To Tutubuor, it was a nice sign of action from those gathered there.
Jesse believed music prevalent at a point in time was better than today's versions.
Kumih believes the Asantehene is a skillful dancer.
In other news, the idea to start an airline hit 42-year-old Sibongile Sambo after she was rejected by the South African Airways.
YEN.com.gh understands that Sambo applied for a job with the airline but was turned down because she did not meet their minimum height requirements.
She, therefore, started her own aviation company, SRS Aviation, and has led it to become the only Black woman-owned and operated aviation company in Africa.
Per a report by blackbusiness.com, she won a contract for cargo transport issued by the South African government and formed a partnership with MCC Aviation, a South African-based fixed & rotor wing charter operator.
She then sold her car and cashed out her mother’s pension to help her obtain an Air Operating Certificate from the South African Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
Despite the challenges, she was able to raise the needed capital and get her business off the ground.
Information available shows that Sambo's company offers its clients professional and personalized flight options to destinations in Africa and around the world.
