He paid homage to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, at the Manhyia Palace.
The Akwasidae Festival is celebrated by the Ashanti people and chiefs in Ashanti, as well as the Ashanti diaspora.
The festival is celebrated on a Sunday, once every six weeks and it’s centered on ancestral reverence, remembrance and acknowledgement of past kings and noble feats.
It also serves as a celebration of the Golden Stool and a cultural vibrancy that brings together the Asantehene, sub-kings and subjects at Manhyia in Kumasi.
