This year’s festival is dedicated to honoring Ghana, with the country’s culture and heritage to be celebrated from May 3-9.

The Asantehene landed in Memphis, Tennessee with a private jet on Tuesday, May 3, 2022.

He arrived at Wilson Air Center in the evening and was greeted by Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland.

On Wednesday, the Asantehene graced the Southwind Golf Course with Charles Ewing, president of the Memphis in May International Festival, to practice the sport.

Osei Tutu II is known to be a man who loves golf and he took the opportunity to develop his skills on the golf course.

Meanwhile, a special event, known as the Black Star Black Tie Gala, will be held in Memphis on May 6 to celebrate Otumfuo’s 72nd birthday.

Three of Ghana’s greatest artists, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie and Okyeame Kwame, will join forces to perform at the Asantehene anniversary celebration.
