A doll-making workshop that is based in Honk Kong, China, called JMG 1/64 Miniatures, has started producing figurines of the popular Ghanaian funeral pallbearers for sale as they've gone viral.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Facebook page of the company, it is clearly indicated that many customers have been patronizing the product and the firm promises to release more interesting dolls in the future.
Reports indicate that the dolls of the famous Ghanaian group are being sold in two categories for $40 and $50 which are approximately GHC 230 and GHC 290 respectively.
See post below:
It is not clear whether the Chinese company obtained proper permission from the group before embarking on the production and sale of their replicas.
If no legal agreements were achieved, perhaps, the group of pallbearers officially known as Nana Otafrija Pall-Bearing Services may take on the Chinese group.
The Ghanaian group of young men become renowned around the globe for their skilful pallbearing dance moves particularly during the outbreak of COVID-19, as they were used in countless memes on social media.
The leader of the group has spoken about how they started, their motivation and how exactly they get clients to work with.
Meanwhile, Ghana's National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, celebrated his 101st birthday on April 23, 2020, with a short surprise party graced by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The vice president shared heartwarming photos from the short birthday surprise at the residence of the Chief Imam and indicated how his gesture was on behalf of both himself and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
In Dr Bawumia's post, he acknowledged that the Chief Imam had contributed immensely to the peace and unity in the country and still continues to play significant roles in the development of the country.
