More On Kumawu, pictorially.







*) Barima Asumadu Sakyi II, at a celebration in Kumasi.

*) Nana Serwaa Amponsah, Kumawuhemaa, sitting alongside her brother at the same event. Ohemaa, yaako.
*) Fontomfrom ( fentemfrem ) drums of Kumawu. Apparently, Kumawu as a state, refused to take off the human crania ( of defeated chiefs ), off their drums, as became the order in Asante, during the tenure of Nana Opoku Ware II. In Asante, the states, especially the amantuo num or nwotwe, are superior in certain spheres.
