A note on fashion etiquette in Mamprugu: a man should never wear his zupiliga (hat) so that the top leans forward. This sends a message that he is superior to all the other men in his presence. To do so in the presence of the paramount chief is an especially rude gesture.

In this image, Gambaraana's son isn't making a statement. He just finished dancing the war dance at the Damba Festival and jossled his hat forward. He wasn't intentionally committing a fashion faux-pas before the paramount chief in Nalerigu, Ghana.

A Mamprusi female chief (pɔ'anaaba) at the 2018 Damba Festival in Nalerigu, Ghana.

Mamprusi women can be given chieftaincy titles akin to Western knighhood but only two villages have female chiefs with the full-authority of a male chief: Dindaani and Samni. Those two unique skins are considered to be almost as powerful as the paramount chief himself.

The last four years' Damba and Fire Festivals in Nalerigu, Ghana had a lead luŋŋa (drummer) named Zakary singing the king's praises and genealogy. This year, he passed the mantle to one of his apprentices who took up the challenging task admirably. For nearly an hour, he inched his way across the palace plaza towards the NaYiri as he sang centuries of royal ancestors' praises all while drumming with all his might.

It's great to see a new generation carrying on such an important and unique tradition in Ghana 🇬🇭

Malnaaba is the MC of all important events in Nalerigu, Ghana.

His role involves announcing the arrival of chiefs and dignitaries, narrating the history of the event, and moving the ceremony along. However, he is also an entertainer, free to joke with anyone in the audience. Even his ridiculous, exaggerated outfit is a satire of the regalia that important chiefs wear to public ceremonies.

The King's Umbrella Holder

Throughout Ghana, the most important of chiefs never come out under the open sky without a massive parasol (called a "leemu" in Mampruli) to cover them. Interestingly, this parasol used for the Mamprusi paramount chief seems to have been made in southern Ghana as it features symbols of the Ashanti royal family (such as the golden stool).
