Sunday, June 16, 2024, marked this year’s International Father’s Day.

In commemoration of the day set aside to celebrate fathers, a picture of the current Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and his biological father, Ohenenana Kwame Boakye Dankwa, has been circulated on social media.

The rare photo, sighted by GhanaWeb, shows a young Otumfuo, then known as Nana Kwaku Duah, wearing a shirt and tie, standing beside his elderly father.

Both men are wearing broad smiles that complement their visible resemblance.

Ohenenana Kwame Boakye Dankwa hailed from the village of Kantinkyiren in the Atwima District, in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

He succeeded his father, Nana Kwaku Duah Agari, as Brahyiahene. He was also the Brehyia Duke of Asante and passed away on January 1, 2002, in Kumasi.
