Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Emmanuel Andrew Samini, known in showbiz as Samini, has been installed as the Pibilii Naa by the Wa Na, Paramount Chief of Wa.
The ceremony was held on Tuesday, 11 December 2018 after Samini paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief.
Pibilii Na means “King of The Little Rocks”.
Pibilii is a small town in Mangu, Samini’s father’s home in the Upper West Regional capital, Wa.
The Wa Na appealed to Samini to use his platform and network to support upcoming music talents in the area. The Paramount Chief pledged to give Samini a land for a studio project that would facilitate the grooming of musicians from Wa and its environs.
Samini was blessed by the chief and made to ride on a horse from the Paramount Chief’s palace.
The versatile musician later expressed his gratitude to the chief and his kinsmen via social media.
“Special thanks to #WaNaa (Paramount Chief of Wa), all the Chiefs Of Wa, The Sub-Chiefs, HighGradeFamily Fans Wa, Zeetown Wa, all the Ghettos in Wa and everybody back home for the warm reception and ribald welcome ahead of my #UNTAMED Album release, my 7th Studio Album.
