Controversial social media personality, Twene Jonas, has made a U-turn over recent comments he made about the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Twene Jonas, in one of his many videos, mentioned the Asante king while blasting Ghanaian chiefs and leaders in his latest rant about galamsey destroying water bodies.
"...Ghana everyone is a thief, they don't speak the truth, including the Asantehene. He couldn't speak the truth but if you watch, he has been listening to me now, hence, he has to speak the truth now," he said.
This was taken by many Ghanaians on social media as derogatory to the Asantehene leading to calls for him to apologise.
A sub-chief of Otumfuo even beseeched him to come down from America and apologise or suffer the consequences of his actions.
Other groups came on social media to rain curses on Jonas for his insults on Otumfuo.
Not long after, Twene Jonas brushed off the calls for him to apologise, saying he will not because all Ghanaian leaders are not wise enough.
Jonas even went further to mock those who cursed him to rather use that energy to curse NAM1 who had squandered their money.
But it looks like Twene Jonas is taking back his words as he has denied insulting the Asantehene.
In a new video, Jonas stated that he did not insult the Asantehene because the king is not directly responsible for the galamsey in the localities.
According to him, Otumfuo never sells land multiple times but the chiefs under him do and it is the same way that those chiefs engage in galamsey.
He further stated that he was in support of the Asantehene for speaking the truth about galamsey and not reading what had been written for him at a recent forum.
Meanwhile, old photos of Twene Jonas have popped up showing how he was like before he travelled to the United States.
The photos have Twene Jonas spending time with his family. In one of the photos, he was seen with a young lady believed to be his sister and two boys.
Another photo had Twene inside a clothing shop with a woman said to be his aunt.
