Ghanaian rapper Christelle Akua Sika Amankona, popularly known as Lousika, has officially been introduced to Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as the Queen mother of Manso Nkwanta in the Ashanti Region.
According to traditional leaders, the Manso Nkwanta serves as the ears of the Asantehene and Asanteman.
A Facebook post by The Ashante Nation on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, said the Manso Nkwanta stool dates as far back as the time of Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu I.
Continuing the narration, The Asante Nation explained, “Asantehene created the stool to serve the purpose of a listening post to any surprise attack from the Southern tribes such as Denkyira, Fante etc.”
In case of any advancement or movement of the enemy towards Asante territory or any surprise attack from the South, Nana Obiri Kusi I, the first chief of Manso Nkwanta, would send information to Kumasi to prepare and stop them.
