This was during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Baba Yara stadium. The stadium was built 50 years ago. Picture shows the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II performing the ceremonial kick off.
In here, I try to provide news and pictures of recent events and developments in the Kumasi metropolis, otherwise refered to as the Garden City of West Africa which happens to be Ghana's second largest city after Accra.
The metropolis is gradually expanding and a lot more suburbs are springing up. I'm just a little person who knows nothing. I'm here to share my thoughts, opinions, and learn from each one of you. Please take time to leave me a comment and note that my prayers are with you all. Peace.
A cruise on the Volta Lake to the Dodi Island located in the Volta region of Ghana. This was during one of my usual vacations where I went on a cruise with my pal - Boahene Asamoah (Daily Graphic, Accra) and a couple of friends. A cruise on the Lake Volta to the Dodi Island aboard the Dodi Princess Boat would enable you to discover Ghana as a country not only rich in culture, but full of natural scenic beauty. The boat cruise on the world's largest man-made lake (Volta) is an experience everyone needs to have. From there you could visit the Cape Coast slave trading fort in the Central region. Explore the forest canopy at Kakum National Park. Enjoy game viewing in Mole National Park. After all that, then come to KUMASI to delve into both modern and ancient West African cultures. Kumasi is the ancient capital of the Ashanti Kingdom. Observe drum, pottery and cloth making in traditional styles, and visit Manhyia Palace, home to the Ashanti King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. This blog would try to feed you with news in the metropolis. CHEERS!!
