Controversial Ghanaian Gospel singer Empress Gifty has been enstooled as a chief by the Igbo community in Ghana over the weekend.

Empress Gifty was spotted in a beautiful traditional Nigerian outfit and beads. Her installation as chief took place at the Afua Sutherland Children’s Park in Accra at the New Yam Festival and the 10th anniversary of the Igbo throne in Ghana.
His Royal Majesty, Eze Dr.Amb.Chukwudi lhenetu, Nigerian King of the lgbo Community in Ghana, conferred the title on Empress Gifty during the event, which was attended by many dignitaries from Ghana and Nigeria. Chief Ugo Nma, to wit beautiful eagle, was inferred on the musician on the day.
Speaking after her inauguration, Empress Gifty stated that she was very pleased to be given such an honour. She noted that her name was a household one, and her exploits transcended beyond boundaries. She further stated that she had a love for tradition and culture and had numerous respects for royalty.
Empress Gifty has been in the news for the wrong reasons of late, and such a title would help clean up her image. The Gospel musician has faced criticisms from a section of the Christian community after her performance at Stonebwoy’s Ashiaman to the World concert.
