The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been on the throne for exactly 21 years today, April 26, 2020.
To mark the occasion, many well-wishers of the Asantehene have taken to social media to share messages.
One of the standout anniversary wishes has come from Dr Caryn Agyeman Prempeh, the Asantehene's daughter who is a medical doctor.
Taking to her Instagram page, Dr Prempeh who is also known Ohemaa Afia Kobi (named after Otumfuo's later mother) shared an old video of her father.
The video is a throwback to the swearing-in ceremony of Otumfuo Osei Tutu before his enstoolment in 1999.
In the video, Otumfuo who was almost 49 years old at the time was seen in the traditional mourning cloth as he took his oath of office.
Sharing the video, Ohemaa asked for God's continuous blessings and wisdom for her father
"May The Good Lord Continue to Bless You With The Wisdom needed to Rule Asanteman Happy Anniversary SUGAR DADDY ," she captioned the video.
Otumfuo's anniversary comes just a few days before he celebrates his birthday. Born on May 6, 1950, Otumfuo will chalk 70 years in 10 days time.
But unlike his 69th birthday which was celebrated in grand style, Otumfuo cannot have big celebration due to social distancing protocols.
