On Otumfuo's special day, the musician had statesmen like Ghana Investment Promotion Centre's boss, Yofi Grant and Ursula Owusu, Minister for Communications, dancing to his tunes while he performed.

Ahead of the performance, the singer shared a meet-and-greet moment with the noble King.

On Instagram, he posted a snippet of his performance, saying:

"My Gift Brought me Before Great Men..I’m Big on GOD," as he recounted the golden opportunity to entertain the King and his top-class guests.

His performance came only a week after his marriage to his sweetheart, Theresa, and they were believed to be on a romantic honeymoon.

In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh hailed Akwaboah's performance saying, Akwaboah is cut from that cloth. He has an impeccable understanding of live performance and highlife and you can tell from that audience response. It's not surprising that the King invited him and I'm certain this performance will shed light on him as a performer who needs more such stages.
