Fast rising American music star, James Guyton, who recently traced his origin to Nigeria, specifically Abia State, has been conferred with a chieftaincy title by the traditional ruler of Ofeme autonomous community in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, Eze E.C.O Udoka.
According to a statement issued from the palace of the monarch, Guyton’s new chieftaincy title is the Nwannedinamba of Ofeme. The rapper was also renamed Chiwetara in Igbo.
The official celebration of Guyton’s chieftaincy title and naming ceremony has been scheduled to take place in the community on Saturday March 21, 2020.
