Acknowledging that the Asantehene is a member of the secret organisation set up to help people, Blakk Rasta said Otumfuo should known his role and attended the event dressed in Kente cloth instead of a suit.

Describing the actions by the Otumfuo as a disgrace, Blakk Rasta said Otumfuo was tarnishing the image of the Asante Kingdom.

"As a pan-Africanist, as a man who loves the culture of our great ancestors, I think Asanteman should start speaking with the Otumfuo," he said.

Blakk Rasta's rant comes on the backdrop of a recent event hosted by the Grand Lodge of Ghana to celebrate Otumfuo on his 25th anniversary as the occupant of the Golden Stool.

In his address at the event, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II said he has no regrets about his decision to become a Freemason.
