“Vernon Winfrey 1933-2022

Less than a week ago we honored my father in his own backyard. My friend and gospel singer Wintley Phipps saluted him with song. He FELT the love and reveled in it until he could no longer speak. Yesterday with family surrounding his bedside, I had the sacred honor of witnessing the man responsible for my life, take his last breath. We could feel Peace enter the room at his passing.

That Peace still abides. All is well. Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts”

Earlier this week, Oprah shared that she surprised her father with a special gathering of his closest family and friends. In a video posted on her Instagram and filmed by her best friend Gayle King, Oprah tells her followers that she wanted the chance to celebrate her ailing father, while he was still able to enjoy it.

“So, I’ve been planning a backyard barbecue that’s actually more than a backyard barbecue, it’s for Vernon Winfrey Appreciation Day,” the iconic host told the camera as King recorded her as she stood in front of a banner that read, “Vernon Winfrey Appreciation Day.”

“Because my father is ill and so we wanted to be able to have all of his friends come and celebrate him while he is able to receive the joy, so that’s what we’re doing receiving the joy.”

, 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.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was invited to the lying-in-state of the late queen as well as the king’s reception, state funeral service, and the foreign secretary’s reception, according to the invitation that was delivered by the Protocol Directorate of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the British government on behalf of the king.
