President Nana Akufo-Addo has virtually adopted the beautiful praise song, ‘Oye’ composed by James Varrick Armaah as the theme song for every ceremony he is involved in.
As an opposition leader, Nana Akufo-Addo’s events had the song routinely played. When he was elected president, Oye played in the air wherever the president passed.
Before cutting his 74th birthday cake at the Jubilee House, the song played and the president swayed characteristically to the rhythm.
He was flanked by former President John Kufuor, Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, his wife Rebecca Akufo-Addo, and close family members, friends and appointees.
But the happiest person appeared to be the Vice-President who clapped and appeared uncharacteristically gregarious.
