During her speech that fateful day, the Asantehene was present and stealing glances at her.

"He (Otumfuo) tells me that he was mesmerised that at the end of the ceremony, even though it had started to rain, he refused to leave despite the prompting of his courtiers."

According to Lady Julia, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II ensured he found out who she was and how to contact her before leaving the event grounds.

Later in the evening, she was summoned by her managing director, the late John Ackah, to dinner at Otumfuo's residence, and that was how the whole love affair began.

"I was summoned to the Asantehene's palace for dinner. Little did I know that I was auditioning for the role of a lifetime," she said.
