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.
