Thank you Endeavorous one, I will take what u have pointed out in your note and use this as a guide for me to do some research. I am more than sure that each inch that I travel in my search for knowledge will get me closer to the miles that I must traverse if I am ever going to know.

while I am no expert, from what I have been taught and what I observed...it appears that most Ghanaian (ethnic) groups, follow similar practices especially when it comes to funerals - which generally consist of the one week rite, the wake-keeping, and the actual funeral as well as the funeral rites.

the poster above serves as an announcement of the one week rites for my late grandfather, Nana Kwame Asuah. the word Okyeame can be loosely translated as 'linguist', however it is a title given to the King's(or Chief's) speech intermediary. this is because in most formal settings the king does not address his audience directly, nor do members of the audience directly speak to the king.

Kaase is a suburb of Kumasi, Ghana, and Akyeame is a variant spelling of Okyeame. The suffix "hene" literally means king, and is used to denote royalty or a head position such as a chief.
