Now back to music. When he turned 50 on November 20, the legal practitioner got busy entertaining guests at his birthday to his musical skills.
Clad in an all-white apparel, the dress code for the birthday celebration, the legal practitioner, with the support of a band, performed and sung praises to God.
In a video he shared on Facebook, Ace Ankomah said, “You, O Lord, have caused lines to truly fall for me in pleasant places and given me a goodly heritage.
“Wo nim neɛ eye ma me, na wo yɛ neɛ eye ma me. Me da wo ase. And to all who wished me well, me da mo nyinaa nso ase. #MyYadah”
