According to a report sighted by Briefly.co.za on Celebritiesbuzz.com, Sung Qiang was made a 'king' in charge of development in the area in a ceremony that took place on September 5.
By virtue of his position, Sun Qiang was renamed as Barima Kofi Ayeboafo, a typical Ghanaian name, and now bears the title 'Nk)s) Hene', meaning 'Development Chief'.
Development King or Chief is an honorific title which is received by a person who deserves it and the person is expected to bring development to the area where he/she was crowned.
Becoming a chief is known to be a privilege that is extended mainly to only people of royal blood or those who have grown up within specific jurisdictions but the induction of the man from China is one of the rare exceptions.
China is one of the most infrastructurally-developed nations in the entire world and it is hoped that Sun Qiang will exhibit strategies of his home country to develop his African community.
China has many skills that the world can learn from. Cooperation among people usually provides positive results, and this is why China introduces the game of cooperation in training their children from kindergarten stage.
