Newly Enstooled Abuakwa Menhyia Queen Mother Bows TO Bring Back “Bragro”



Newly enstooled Queen Mother of Abuakwa Manhyia Obaahemaa Afia Tumutuo, has vowed to reintroduce the Akan tradition “Bragro” which seeks to instil chastity in the teenage girl back in her community.
Obaahemaa Tumutuo has now been crowned the Queen mother Abuakwa Manhyia in the Atwima Nwabiagya South district of the Ashanti Region.

Her enstoolment ceremony took place on Tuesday, 23rd April this year after she had undergone the laid down customary procedures according to the Akan tradition.
“Bragro”, a puberty rite performed for the teenage girl according to the customs of the Akan tries to prevent the young girls from engaging in early sexual activities before marriage.
However, this rich African culture has been left out in the society leaving the girl child’s sexual life uncontrolled.
But Obaahemaa Tumutuo has insisted she is going to make sure her teenage girls get the best training and upbringing in her community.

The Queen Mother also revealed to the media that her major concern and mission is to curb the overheated teenage pregnancies in her locality as she has been enstooled onto the throne while she instil “bragro” in them .

Gracing the ceremony which saw almost all her subject and people from nearby town was Otumfuo’s Ankobeahene, Nana Baffuo Kwame Kusi II.

In a speech by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II read by Nana Baffuo Kwame Kusi II, the Asantehene cautioned the queen mother to desist from all manner of irresponsible behaviours that could render her reputation into disrepute.

Nana Ankobeahene further challenged the Queen Mother to exhibit maximum respect to chiefs and elders of the Abuakwa Manhyia Traditional Area.
“Be sober to your Gyaasehene and Nananom, also display a consummative life to all the women in your community and you will reside on the stool for long”. He warned.

“I have crowned you the Queen mother of Abuakwa Manhyia and its stool lands, on behalf of our Lord Otumfuo Osei Tutu II”. Nana Baffuo Kwame Kusi II affirmed.

Obaahemaa Tumutuo has also vowed to assist the venerable and the poor to embark on proper education so as to limit the evaporated rate of illiteracy in her jurisdiction.


DEBUT ALBUM: Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family




DEBUT ALBUM by Miriam Mandipira & The Soul Family!
You’ve never heard a voice like Miriam Mandipira’s. Undeservedly, she doesn’t take credit for the power or presence she delivers. For Miriam, music is much more than just notes and words. It’s
magic. And faith. You can experience it LIVE and on the album, which is set to be released on September 1st.

She has been singing for as long as she can remember, growing up with her ears glued to the radio.

From the moment her school teacher asked her to sing in class, the rest has been history. From Africa to Denmark, from Book Café in Harare to Mojo Blues Bar and the big concert halls. From
Danish Radio Big Band to the Royal Theater. Music is music, and Miriam is the music.

“But it’s not about me when I sing. I’m just the instrument, and when I’m on stage with my band, I sing from a place that’s not about rules and technique but about emotions,” says the singer, who is
seriously trying her hand at songwriting – together with her Soul Family on the album “Ndiwe”, which means ‘you are the chosen one of my heart.’ The overall message is impossible to ignore

“Call me a soul singer, call me a jazz singer. I don’t care. Good music is good music, and I love interpreting other people’s songs and being inspired. At the same time, I think it’s great to try my
hand at creating and writing the songs myself – and with my friends in the Soul Family, I have found my place. They are my family, and the curiosity and respect we share are fantastic.”

You can experience that up close when Miriam & The Soul Family take the stage. The enthusiasm for music and communication is impossible to ignore and hear.

“I love to maintain the feeling of being a child. It’s an excitement and curiosity that keeps me going, and that’s why I’m so excited about every single concert – no matter how small or large it is.

Otherwise, I would never do it. This is not just a casual thing. This is a life, and everything means something,” says Miriam, who began her years in Denmark by jamming at Mojo Blues Bar, building a network.
