The Queen mother for Ewe community of Chicago Mama Awushie Adjaho Kuevi was outdoored at this year’s GhanaFest held in Chicago in North America last fist week in August.
This, to the Ewe community, was a landmark event as the community has been without a queen for a long time.
The event, held at the Washington Park in Chicago, drew many Ghanaians from all over the world. Ghana’s rich culture was on display with chiefs representing various traditional areas from Ghana, adorned in their traditional regalia, to showcase their rich culture amid drumming, dancing and singing.
The event also brought together Ghanaian entrepreneurs who put their wares on display for sales. From restaurant owners, fashion designers and artists, there was something Ghanaian for everyone. Theodosia Adu-Awuah, CEO of Alegna Fashions from Ghana was full of praise for the organizers.
The event was sponsored by Group Nduom which has a bank in the community. President of Group Nduom, Paa Kwesi Nduom said Group Nduom would continue to sponsor the event.
Mama Adjaho promised to help the chief and elders of the Ewe community to bring leadership and support to the community.
