‘Single Ladies’ star Lisa Raye crowned Queen Mother of Ghana due to her philanthropic work

Yes, Lisa Raye McCoy is now the Queen Mother of the West African state of Ghana.

The American beauty was bestowed the high honor on 22nd of September in Los Angeles surrounded by family and friends in Los Angeles. The 52-year-old Chicago native who was once the Queen of Turks and Caicos from a previous marriage received the title of ‘Queen Mother’ as part of the tribal traditions of the Ghanian tribe of the Ashanti people; a special appointment made by Paramount Chief of Agona Kwanyako.

According to The Source, “Enstoolment, or installation… was started in the 17th Century by the Ashanti people of Ghana. McCoy will reign over Ghana’s Central Region. Raye earned her new regal title for her humanitarian efforts over the years and was handpicked by the Chief of Agona Kwanyako, the chiefs, and the entire Kingdom Traditional Divisional Councils.

With newly bestowed social influence and power in local government, Raye had lots to say about her new role as Queen Mother. “This honor is beyond my wildest imagination,” she said. “I plan to do all that I can by using my platform to bring positive attention to this region. I will serve humbly.” The actress continued, “I’ve had lots of accomplishments in my life, personally and professionally, but I didn’t get to this point alone. It’s taken a great team of people along the way. To have such an honor bestowed upon me by my own African people is a testament to my hard work and character. It’s like a dream coming true before my very eyes.”
