The Ashanti Kingdom is celebrating the 24th anniversary of the coronation of its current King, Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Born, Nana Barima Kwaku Duah, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II ascended the throne on April 26, 1999, as the 16th Asantehene since the Ashanti empire was founded by Osei Tutu I.

GhanaWeb has sighted a video of the coronation of the revered Asantehene on this day in 1999.

In the said video, Osei Tutu II can be seen swearing an oath as he wields a sword.

“I’m the grandchild of Nana Agyeman Prempeh. My uncle is Osei… my brother is Opoku Ware II,” the Ashantehene said.
