Ghanaian broadcaster, feminist, and author- Gifty Anti has shared throwback photos of her husband Nana Ansah Kwao IV, the paramount chief of Akwamu Adumasa to mark his tenth anniversary since he was installed.
Gifty who turned 51-years old over the weekend eulogized her husband in a post she shared on Facebook while taking her readers and fans down the memory lane punctuated with the rich culture of the people of Akwamu Adumasa and how her hubby was ‘arrested’ to face his destiny.
Ten years ago today. 24th January 2011, my husband,Nana Ansah Kwao IV
was enstooled as the chief of Akwamu Adumasa.
I didn’t know him then though. But God knew about the future connection
After a week of confinement, where he was schooled on the task ahead, as custom demands, he was carried shoulder high for everyone to see him.
Tradirionally, it was also the last opportunity for his friends and family to relate to him as a private person.10 years ago not many had heard of this Town called Adumasa.Today, the story is quite different.The Little Republic of Akwamu Adumasa is known across the world .He’s not been perfect, but I believe he has served his people well.The celebrations have been pushed to Easter though.However, please help me celebrate him and wish him well for the next 50 years!!!Oyiakahyire Ansah Kwao IV, du3 du3 du3!! Uneasily lies the head that wears the crown.Your Ahenkan, Nyame Animuonyam and I say Ayeekooo Ohene!!!
We love and cherish you.
