Kojo Antwi Gets Keys To The City Of Worcester

Ghana’s illustrious music icon Julius Kojo Antwi has been honoured with the Keys to the City of Worcester, Massachusetts in the United States of America by Mayor Joseph M. Petty.

The presentation to the legendary African musician came off on Saturday, August 5 in the sight of city-resident Ghanaian Royal Nana Sompahene aka Mr Maxwell Agyemfra, 3-time, 2-division world boxing champion Jose Antonio Rivera, Mr Richard Kweku Boateng – CEO of Big Shoes Entertainment & Anokyekrom Restaurants, and a brigade of excited enthusiasts of The Maestro Kojo ANTWI.

The ‘Mister Music Man’ expressed his profound gratitude to the City of Worcester for the honour and promised to proceed to spread love, compassion, peace and harmony through his music whilst promoting the beautiful cultures of his homeland Ghana, and Africa, to the world.

The rite of giving Keys to a City is a historic one that commenced in 1702 in New York when Mayor Phillip French offered “Freedom of the City” to Viscount Edward Cornbury, Governor of New York and New Jersey.

In medieval times, major cities would be fortified by walls and gates for the people’s protection.

When a visiting hero or dignitary came to the town, the people would make an elaborate ceremony, and also present them with a key meant to confer trust and honour.

The key signifies the freedom of the recipient to enter and vacate the city at will, as a trusted pal of city inhabitants.

In the contemporary age, the Key to the City is a precious symbol of civic distinction and gratitude earmarked for individuals whose service to the public and the common good ascends to the highest level of accomplishment.

Congratulations in order to the Superman KOJO ANTWI.
