“Osei Tutu’s Name And Spirit Pushes Ashantis In The Creative Industry” – Kyekyeku




In spite of all obstacles, Kumawood—the cinema scene in Kumasi, the Ashanti region's capital, and the site of Otumfuo's Manhyia Palace—has for years discovered, developed, introduced, elevated, and engaged a large number of performers, propelling them to national and worldwide prominence.

According to actor , one of the main inspirations for the Ashanti region's creative energy is Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, King of the Asante Kingdom.

During his guest appearance on Accra 100.5 FM's Entertainment Capital, was questioned about what inspires the people in that area to challenge the status quo and forge new routes.

“Our monarch. The mere mention of Ote Kokooso, aptly named “the one who sits on gold,”! The name carries such powerful force. Globally, Otumfuo's monarchy and influence have expanded greatly. “His kingship alone accomplishes everything,” said Kyekyeku.

2020 saw the youth of Kumasi take the lead once more in the Kumerican Drill, also known as Asakaa, a music revolution that made headlines across the world with Yaw Tog's Sore, which featured O'Kenneth, City Boy, Reggie, and Jay Bahd. The song, which they preferred to refer to as Ghanaian Drill, was acknowledged by the Recording Academy of America in 2023, the organization behind the renowned Grammy Awards, and it was included in a brand-new category called Best African Song Performance.

Accra, the nation's capital, gets a lot of support and attention from the creative arts sector, but Kumasi, a renowned city some 250 kilometers south, has made a name for itself by producing a lot with considerably less resources.
