About one thousand framed pictures chronicling the unprecedented and illustrious reign of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II have been displayed in a tabernacle mounted at the Afia Kobi Park inside the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.

The Photo Exhibition was inaugurated by the King on May 1, 2024, to afford all and sundry the chance to familiarize themselves with events, programmes and projects he has undertaken since his ascension as the 16th Monarch of the Kingdom from 1999 till date.

The chronological pictorial recount begins with the then Barima Kwaku Duah’s election as the suitable candidate for the Golden Stool after the death of Otumfuo Opoku Ware II; his introduction to key traditional authorities before his swearing-in; and the event of his swearing-in.

It further portrays some courtesy calls he paid to some prominent Ghanaian authorities including the late and former President Jerry John Rawlings at the Osu Castle and the international authorities following his ascension.

It also captures moments with Lady Julia and in some, two of his children, on international trips and official duties in the country, including commissions and sod-cuttings.

These international trips were made to the United Kingdom, the World Bank, Philadelphia, the Netherlands, the United States of America, the House of Commons and more.

His Majesty is also captured with foreign heads of state and dignitaries who called on him in the past 25 years such as Prince Talal bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed El Barade, the Director General of Atomic Energy Agency, H.E. Faure Gnassingbe, the President of Togo, Kofi Anan, the former Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), Muammar Al Gaddafi, a Libyan revolutionary and Horst Kohler, the former German President.

Another frame memorialises the moment Asantehene bestowed the title Bosommuru on Kofi Annan.

Several others capture the various corporate social responsibilities of the King through his NGO, the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation.

The exhibition will end on July 31, 2024.
