He emphasized that Otumfuo’s significance and contributions to national development, as well as his role in fostering social cohesion over the years, deserve commendation.

On May 12, 2024, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, celebrated his 25th anniversary since ascending to the throne as the Asantehene of Asanteman in a magnificent manner.

The ‘No Competition’ video showcases the vibrant Ghanaian culture by featuring scenes of the chieftaincy institution.

It also emphasizes the diversity of traditional attire, including kente cloth, intricate adinkra symbols, beautifully crafted African prints, beads, and other accessories.

There was a comedic antagonist portrayed by OB Amponsah in the video, who caused disruptions to the activities. However, once he was adorned in kente cloth, his behavior improved, and he stopped causing trouble.

According to Okyeame Kwame, this symbolizes how people behave improperly when they are disconnected from their cultural identity. He pointed out that this disconnect can influence one’s beliefs, behavior, and way of life significantly.

He urged parents to instill cultural identities in their children to guide their lifestyles.

The video also showcases the Hiplife legend’s talent for promoting Ghana’s rich cultural heritage. It featured one of Ghana’s finest, Kuami Eugene, who also served as the producer of the song.
