The Ashanti Kingdom now in modern Ghana referred to as Ashanti Region is undoubtedly one of the richest kingdoms on the African continent and the world at large.
The region has seen several studies and books written due to its rich culture characterised with wealth, military prowess, and architecture.
Its capital Kumasi has produced a lot of great figures for Ghana; from sports to engineering, arts, and notable entertainment with lots of figures in the movie and music industry.
Fast forward today, there’s a new wave in Region – KUMERICA! The term is said to have been coined from the combination of Kumasi and America by sensational internet duo, Oseikrom Migos.
The duo made up of young rappers Syber38 babies and Triple 4k are noted on social media for displaying their rich and flashy lifestyles, and of course their rap prowess. Yeah, you read that right!
They featured in top Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur’s ‘Year of Return’ video.
Currently, Kumerica has received lots of recognition from popular celebrities and personalities from and outside the region.
It’s is currently the trending wave in the Ghanaian social media sphere, washed with several pictures and videos of both the young and the old.
Well, It remains to be seen how long this wave will last or perhaps where it transcends to, but until then welcome to the new Kumasi.
But if you’re from the diaspora or maybe outside the region and planning on visiting anytime soon, it might perhaps be prudent to check towns and its affiliates in America.
It is possible you might not meet your good, old Kumasi.
