Ghanaian musician Samini has been enskinned as Yilanaa – King of Music – by Dakpema Naa Alhaji Mohammed Alhassan Dawuni, Overlord of Tamale Traditional Authority.
This was after the musician paid a courtesy call on the Dakpema Naa ahead of the Tamale Sallahfest on Sunday September 11.
Samini, who was born Emmanuel Andrews Samini, later expressed his gratitude on Instagram saying:
“Had to go and his Royal Highness Mohammed Alhasan Dawuni and he just enskinned me YILANAA “King of Music” …. Highly honoured.
“Road clear now and all set for tonight.
“Be at the stadium at 7pm sharp.”
BET Award winner Stonebwoy was also enthroned by the paramount chief of Tamale, Gukpegu Naa (Naa Alhaji Abdulai) as Sapashini, Dancehall Warrior.
