Over the weekend, musician Fameye was honoured with a new title by the Chiefs of Wasa for being a beacon for the people of Wassa and its environs.
Fameye who originally hails from Bogoso held a homecoming concert on Saturday to mark his return home. He was then named “Wasa Nyankonton” — a rainbow to the people of Wasa.
The Chief of the area, Nana Sempre II, in a video, explained that Fameye’s enstoolment was to recognise his efforts at elevating the towns of Bogoso and Wasa.
“…because Fameye has raised the name of Wasaman and that of Bogoso, the name I, the Chief of Bogoso, want to give Fameye today among all the musicians in Ghana is ‘Wasa Nyankonton,” Nana Sempre said as he gave Fameye the title.
The “Praise” singer, elated by the honour, poured libations after and thanked the Chiefs.
“I would like to thank the chief and elders for this title and honour given me. I thank him so much and everyone present. What I have to say is that I won’t let this title down, I’ll do whatever I can to continue uplifting the name and the youth of Wasaman,” Fameye said in his speech.
