Kumasi never disappoints. The Independence Day celebration in the Ashanti Regional capital is arguably one of the most colorful if not the most colorful.
The Baba Yara Sports Stadium is filled to capacity. This tells you the importance the people attach to this event.
The Kente clothes on show add more than enough spices to the event
A portrayal of the cultural heritage of the people, Kente has been worn by the people, especially the traditional rulers of the kingdom for centuries.
The region produces the best of Kente clothes in the country, as the people of Bonwire would say.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II graced the occasion with his presence.
An aerial view of the sports stadium showcases the huge attendance of the programme by the people. Hundreds, if not thousands, could not enter the stadium due to lack of space.
As the cultural hub of the country, the hosting of the 63rd Independence Day Anniversary in the golden kingdom couldn’t have come at a better time.
