According to her, she caught the king's attention while working as the Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer of Ecobank Ghana.

She was in Kumasi to inaugurate the bank's first branch in the city and was made to deliver the vote of thanks after the ceremony.

Her delivery impressed the king, who later confessed he had been "mesmerised." After being mesmerised, Otumfuo waited to know and exchange contact with her.

Lady Julia's boss at Ecobank invited her to join him for dinner at the king's residence. The dinner date became an audition for the role of Asantehene's wife.

"Here we are, 22 years later, blessed with beautiful children, grandchildren, and a remarkable extended family," Lady Julia said.
"Dearest, these years have truly been extraordinary, and each day I marvel at the life you've gifted me. You've surpassed all my dreams and expectations," she praised her husband.
