American actress, model, and entrepreneur, Lisa Raye McRoy in telling ‘her truth’ in a recent interview on The Wendy William Show, referred to herself as the ‘Queen Mother of Ghana’, which drew a lot of attention from Ghanaians on social media.

American media reported in September that LisaRaye was enstooled as a queen mother of Agona Kwanyanko in the Central region.

According to reports, she was named as queen mother because of her humanitarian efforts, and that she was chosen for the role by the ‘paramount chief of Agona Kwanyako, the chiefs, and the entire Kyidom Traditional Divisional Council’.

LisaRaye McCoy’s enstoolment took place at a glitzy ceremony at the Cicada Club in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. It was attended by some ‘chiefs’ dressed in regal clothes who referred to King Yahweh of the ‘beautiful Kingdom of Yahweh’ as the one that made it all possible.

King Yahweh also posted photos of the ceremony on his Twitter page gloating about crowning LisaRaye McCoy ‘Queen Mother of Ghana’. With Twitter users poking wholes into his claims and his authority, the ‘King’ has since made his Twitter account private.

So who is King Yaweh?

According to his Twitter profile, he is “Ghana & USA(Chief, Nana, fon )King YAHWEH in Agona Kwanyako & Mankessim, Ghana & Cameroon Africa 2019) Nigeria, Ethiopia2019) philanthropist”. His website further gives more details as follows:
