After being seen together with Mary J Blige at the BAFTAs , several media around the world reported that Ghanaian real estate mogul, Nana Kwame Bediako is an African prince dating the famous American R&B star. We think we know why!
Apart from a possible publicity stunt for Mary J, we also think the confusion stems from the fact that Nana Kwame was wearing a custom made Agbada by Nigerian designer Ugo Monye.
Interestingly, the 3-piece custom made burgundy outfit ensemble is from Ugo Monye’s “Prince of Africa collection”. The collection which was made specifically for Bediako features diamonds, black Swarovski and crocodile skin details.
So it appears that communications around the attire Nana Kwame wore on the night got some folks around too excited into thinking he was an actual Prince from Africa! Plus, we have a feeling that Nana Kwame Bediako, in his fancy accent, tried to explain the meaning of ‘Nana’ to someone at some point during the award ceremony.
Nana Kwame Bediako who is the founder and CEO of the Kwarleyz Group, capturing brands such as New Africa Construction, Belfast City & Property Management, Wonda World Estates, Petronia City Development and the New Africa Philanthropic Foundation, while concurrently serving as Co-Principal of the recently-launched Capital Nine Zero (CNZ) has also rocked several of Ugo Monye’s pieces to events across the globe.
