King Bansah

King Bansah is an african King. He lives and works in Ludwigshafen/Germany as a car-mechanic and governs his people from there. King Bansah does a lot of activites and performances to collect money for his aid projects. He is a singer, a guest in TV-shows and events. But he is a real King with a serious background.

The new corporate design should underline the authenticity and lordliness of the king because they are essential for him and make his activities possible. A combination of royal and exotic impressions. One example of his engagement is his own royal beerAKOSOMBO. The benefit of the beer is passed on to the aid projects of the King in Ghana.”

    This ID is wonderful. So many elements that work so well together. the B mark on the cards with the other symbols is great, and it’s wonderful how it was translated into the wax stamp. So much going on with that border too, but it works.

    This guy is at best a creative philanthropist, and at worst, a lying huckster. His title only loosely translates as “king” — it is really more like “honorary chief” a title given to him since he has been successful in bringing money to rural Ghana. The Ewe people have not asked him to rule them. It suits the Europeans traditional beliefs to think that “an ordinary mechanic” is the equivalent of a “king” in Africa.

    I’ve spoken to the Ghanian embassy, and they are slightly embarrassed by him because he is misusing a mis-translated title to make money, even though some (not all) of the money he makes goes to Ghana.
