In an address, Nana Akwasi Appeatu IV, chief of Assin-Basiako, commended the actress for being dedicated to the cause of the underprivileged and youth.

He lauded the actress for her discipline and exemplary life and said it was about time that other professionals emulated this shinning example.
Swearing the oath of allegiance, Nana Adwubi thanked the chief and people for the honour done her and promised to work hard to justify her new status.
