The overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has rekindled the long-standing relationship with the Awuah-Darko family.

This was at their private residence at Juaben in the Ashanti region as they climaxed the 50th anniversary of the Paramount Chief of Juaben traditional area, Nana Otuo Siriboe II.

Clad in colourful Kente apparel, the king, together with his entourage exchanged hearty pleasantries with the family ahead of the traditional celebration on Saturday, December 4, 2021.

The Nkosuohene of the Juaben stool, Nana Awuah-Darko Ampem II who welcomed the king, said the Awuah-Darko family deemed it the greatest of honour to host him.
