Previous day’s for the funeral ceremony of Rawlings had been sad.
There’s an outrage on social media as to why the Ewe traditional culture is not in full display at former President Jerry John Rawlings’ funeral.
Aside being a son of the Volta land, he’s a Chief. In 2016, he was enstooled as a peace chief of Anlo State.
Hence, custom demands that some Anlo traditional dances, among other Ewe culture must be in full display at his funeral.
But instead, what we hear on TV is Adowa and other Akan traditional songs and dances.
This situation has caused Voltarians to ask that what at all is going on?
“Watching Rawling’s funeral and too much Adowa here and there instead of Agbadza, why, the man be Akan man“, one social media asked.
Watching Rawling’s funeral and too much Adowoa, NsoromaNews came across the most scary, Black magic and beautiful culture display captured on camera. Watch below.
Apparently, there was a back and forth battle between the Anlo State and the Government as to how the funeral would be held.
While the Government insisted on giving the former Head of State a State burial, the Anlo State also said per their culture, they deserve control over Rawling’s remains.
At the end of the day, the Government won the battle to organise a state burial.
