The piece describes Nana Panin III as "One of scores of royal chiefs there, he wears a gold crown and colorful kente cloth, resides in a palace, and rides around town with a chauffeur. But in Worcester, he is just Harry, a middle-aged middle manager at an endoscopy company who paints his own deck and gently discourages his Ghanaian coworkers from calling him “nana.” the word for royal chief.
Danso, who came to the United States in1985 is a chief in the Asokwa area, which includes his hometown of Koforidua. He and other Ghanaians in Worcester raise money through a nonprofit, the New Juaben Association of New England, to send X-ray machines, gloves, and syringes to the area’s cash-strapped hospital.
