He said he was most touched when Afronita and her colleague, Abigail, waved Ghana's flag on the stage before beginning their performance.

Afronita met with the Deputy Minister, Mark Okraku Mantey, the Executive Director of the National Theatre of Ghana, Amy Frimpong, Stephany Yamoah, the Director of the National Dance Company, and other dignitaries.

"When I watched the clip, I shed a tear because it was extremely emotional. The way the Ghana flag was hoisted—you held it up until when you were about to start—you placed it on the stage for the performance. And you left it and walked off the stage. It was amazing," he said.

Afronita also expressed her gratitude to the Minister-designate for the honour she had been given and urged the government to invest in the dance industry to unearth more talent.

She also asked the government to invest in her dance school to help her reach out to street kids to transform their lives.
