“It’s not for me. It’s not for me to engage. I didn’t grow up in that space,” he told the comedian.

The Roc Nation mogul did attempt to join Instagram twice, once in November 2021 after being persuaded by his friend Lenny Santiago. “I let Lenny gas me. We was drinking at J. Cole’s concert,” he said.

“It went crazy and it was on TIME magazine the next morning. I was like, this is too much,” Hov recalled.

Prior to that in August 2015, he launched a short-lived Instagram account with the name @Hovsince96. His first post was a tribute to Michael Jackson on what would have been the King of Pop’s 57th birthday.

Despite his own aversion to social media, that doesn’t mean he has a problem with it. “I believe in evolution so whatever form it is, I accept that,” he said.

, Local champion- Presidential staffer mocks Togbe Afede after Otumfuor got an invite to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, Frederick Nuetei


Togbe Afede XIV, the Agbogbomefia of Asogli State, has been dragged by a member of the presidential staff, Samuel Bryan Buabeng over an invitation extended to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

Samuel aimed a dig at the popular chief in a post he shared on Twitter saying; “The local champion Efo James and his subjects should continue fighting people over Yam festival donations.”

 

Before assuming the kingdom of Asogli, Togbe Afede went by the name James Akpo in private.

The phrase “Yam festival donations” also refers to a recent event in which the Asogli State Council openly rejected donations made by a member of parliament from Assin Central to the annual Te Za Yam festival.

Kennedy Agyapong was formally invited, but his donations were turned down with the later justification that he had been invited incorrectly.

 

Recall that King Charles III of Great Britain has officially invited the Asantehene to attend the state burial of Queen Elizabeth I
