Another musician has been made chief few months after Amakye Dede was enstooled as chief at Asante Akyem Agogo in the Ashanti Region.
Sloopy Mike Gyamfi, a highlife artiste known for hit songs like ‘Telephone Nkomo’ and ‘Asem Kakra’ has been installed as paramount chief of Boso-Gua Traditional Area in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region.
He will now be known as Nana Nyarko Yeboah III or Boso-Gua Manhene. A part from his personal records, Sloopy has also produced works for Nana Aboagye Dacosta, Oheneba Kissi, Daddy Lumba, Diana Hopeson and a host of others.
Reports say the tradition and customs of the people of Boso-Gua will not permit Sloopy to continue pursuing his music career.
The highlife musician, who is also a businessman and an IT expert, has stated that he is ready to serve his subjects, bring development, modify tourism in the area, develop music talents of the youth and bring foreign investments into the traditional area.
Sloopy Mike Gyamfi, a father of four, is married to a Dutch female teacher, Judith Zwaan.
