The spotlight was beamed on one of the elders and prominent members of the Ghanaian community in Chicago, Mr. Samuel Kwabena Owusu, popularly known as “Nanaeffe” or “Kobby”. Recently, Mr. Owusu gained the “status” of a “Duke” as a result of his wife, Juliet Owusu’s ascension to the throne of Queen-mother of the Ga-Dangbe Community Organization here. The event was Owusu @ 60th which coincided with Sam and Juliet Owusu’s 31st marriage anniversary. His relationship with Juliet dates back to their student days at the Nurses Training College, NTC, KorleBu, Accra, in the ’80s. Their union was blessed with two girls, Nana and Efua Owusu.
A lavish private dinner to celebrate the milestones took place at the luxurious Long Hall Chicago, 2337 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago IL, 60647. The celebrations were one of the most elegant and classy events recently in Chicago. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic precautions, attendance was limited to family and close friends of the Owusu’s.
The event climaxed when “Nanaeffe”, looking more like a 40-year young man, supported by family and friends, took to the dance floor and delivered some spectacular dance moves. Also, there were emotional recounts of numerous assistance the couple rendered to friends and family, which drew applause and tears in the audience.
The Owusu family and friends were again at the Presbyterian Church, Redemption, Chicago, the following day, November 21, 2021, to praise and thank the Almighty Lord, for His Grace and Mercies.
