Ghanaian Kumasi-based comedy group comprising Ras Nene, Kyekyeku, Ama Tundra, Shifo, and 39-40 have been granted audience at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
The team was invited to the Asantehene's palace in line with the Asante monarch's 71st birthday celebration which took place on May 6, 2021.
A durbar was held on the palace grounds and subjects of the Asante Kingdom were seen paying homage to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The actors were seen coming one after the other and prostrated before the ruler who was seated among his sub-chiefs.
As Ras Nene made his way to pay homage to Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II, it appeared the Asante monarch recognised him and he could be seen giving of what looked like a laugh.
The Asante monarch turned 71 years on May 6, 2021, and was celebrated by the whole country and beyond.
Ohemaa Afia Kobi Prempeh, the pretty daughter of Otumfuo Osei-Tutu II, took to social media to celebrate her dad on the occasion of his 71st birthday.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of the qualified medical doctor, Ohemaa Afia Kobi Prempeh dropped a throwback photo of her dad.
She appeared to be one of the first to wish the Asantehene well on his big day as she wished him well a little after 12 am today, May 6, 2021.
Speaking about Ras Nene, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the General captain of the senior national team, the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has come into contact with the comedian and his acting crew who have gone viral for months now.
The experienced footballer, in photos sighted by YEN.com.gh, was seen in the company of Ras Nene popularly known as Dr Likee, Shifo, Kwaku Manu, Kyekyeku, 39-40 and Fillaman.
It appeared the team called on the former Sunderland goal poacher to express their appreciation for his support.
