President John Mahama has spoken for the first time about a video of him and Asante Monarch Otumfuo Osei Tutu II dancing to Daddy Lumba’s ‘y3n tie obiaa’ song.
The viral video shows the President and the Asante Royal dancing to a live rendition of the hi-life song after they had jointly inaugurated the first phase of rehabilitation work on the Kumasi Airport. The development project comprises rehabilitation of the defective runway and installation of airfield lights on the runway. It is meant to facilitate night operations at the airport.
The absence of those facilities frustrated the operation of airlines at the Airport at night. Local airlines bore the brunt of the Airport’s deficiencies.
Mr Mahama and the Asantehene were both elated by the completion of the project and celebrated with a dance later in the night after the inauguration ceremony.
Addressing delegates of the governing party at Saturday’s national congress held at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi, the President said: “I wish to say irrespective of how many videos are shown of me and Otumfuo dancing, the fact is that Kumasi Airport has witnessed a considerable facelift far above what it was before we came and met it.”
