Award winning Broadcast Journalist/Feminist Gifty Anti and her husband Oyekechire Ansah Kwaw – Chief of Adumasa, have officially outdoored their royal baby as tradition demands.

The much-talked about naming ceremony of the baby of Nana Ansah Kwao IV, Chief of Edumasa in the Eastern Region and his wife Gifty Anti took place Sunday October 15, 2017 at Edumasa in the Eastern region.

The ceremony, which started as early as 7am, had both Traditional and Christian elements, was well-attended with some list of dignitaries including former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, satirist Kwaku Sintim Misa (KSM), Becca, Ceccy Twum, Afia, KOD and Mr. George Owusu, former CEO of EO Group.

The programme, which was the first of its kind in the community, witnessed a colourful cultural display, coincided with the two years marriage anniversary celebration.

Gifty Anti carried the baby and sat next to the queen mother Nana Afrakoma till she was called to hand the baby to the Chairman of the Council of Elders to carry on the naming rituals, which was followed by administering of honey, water and wine instructing the baby to uphold truth and integrity throughout her life.

After that, the baby was given back to her mother who passed her on to the Queen mother to decorate her with bracelets, as she performed while speaking words of wisdom and inspiration to her.

Some selected elderly guests were given the opportunity to speak words of inspiration to the newborn baby, which included Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings and Mr. George Owusu, bringing the traditional part to an end.

After that, the royal couple was ushered into the ceremonial grounds to begin the Christian naming ceremony and refreshment. Two magnificent cakes donated by Curious Cakes, a subsidiary of EKGS Culinary Institute, were cut to climax both naming ceremony and wedding anniversary.

Review By The Panel On The Top 3:Harold, Deyemi and JamesHarold Amenyah

Harold Amenyah made a very good appearance with a lot elegance and carried himself well on the Ghana Movie Awards Red Carpet and he seems to have a huge potential to become a fashion genius in the near future taking into consideration those heavy weights who attended the event including the likes of John Dumelo co. and yet he managed to attract attention for top 3 Shortlist that was very impressive ,even though we recognized he is still up and coming on the Ghana movie & Fashion industry the panel overwhelmingly think he has done soo well for himself base on where he’s coming from and that he should be given the nod & the opportunity to develop.

Deyemi Okanlawon

Deyemi Okanlawon made an amazing appearance and carried himself with a lot of glamour, confidence & elegance on the Ghana Movie Awards Red carpet and the panel believes his appearance can compete globally. We also think he could take world by storm in the near future with his fashion appearance if he keeps up the pace, and encourage him to grow his fashion talents steadily.

James Gardiner

James Gardiner made an amazing appearance with style and carried himself well as an outstanding Global diplomat on the Ghana movie awards red carpet! And Panel his jacket & pants colour is wawooooooo but a little bit of tight dress fitting would have blown all his competitors away. Nonetheless the panel thinks his fashion potential is unlimited and encourages him to continue same trend.
