"The words he spoke to me made me realize who I am and everything makes sense now.

"He told me how my grandfather was he’s best friend before he passed away and how he was known for he’s extravagant way of dressing, he was the first person he saw wearing a bow tie.

"I nearly lost my grandson but he’s back now and there for you belong here.

Those words of the King to me will travel with me and will change many things in my life. #proudashanti 🇬🇭
