Meet Maria Lovell, the Ghanaian who just attained the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire

Congratulations to Maria Ampah Lovell who just attained the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. The Councillor and Former Mayor of Luton Town celebrated yet another milestone by being awarded at Windsor Castle.

She posted the amazing news on her Twitter feed while resplendent in regal kenter and adorned like royalty.

As the first African mayor in Luton, she has been a vocal proponent for women empowerment, centering on women in the diaspora. As the CEO of the Ghana Society UK, Councillor Lovell has made it her life’s work to promote Ghana’s diverse cultural heritage and its relevance in the United Kingdom.

Councillor Lovell who is also the Kente Nkosuohemaa (a.k.a Nana Abena Asantewaa I),  has charged the Ghanaian government with visiting the idea of institutionalizing a day to celebrate kente. As part of the organisers of the Kente Festinal in the UK, Councillor Lovell is an inspiration to not only Ghana but to African women both home and in the diaspora.

We are absolutely warmed to hear that her stellar work is being recognised for the gold that it is.

Congratulations, Councillor Maria Ampah Lovell, may God continue to give you the strength and mettle you require to reach farther and higher heights of honour and prestige.
