I’ve been staring at this picture for some minutes now, it’s set as my profile picture, I found it on Google but I’m wondering, is it really our Yaa Asantewaa?? If you Google “Yaa Asantewaa” this is the picture you get, how do I know I’m not being manipulated, how did Yaa Asantewaa really look like? Imagine how stupid you’d feel growing up with an image of someone you believed you know only to realise the picture you were presented of that person was a fake.
That time who had camera to take your capture someone? When was camera invented? If it’s before her time then it might be possible tho!! My opinion
I think the camera came about 100 years before Yaa Asantewaa was born, so it was possible to take photos in her days.
Man gotta dig deep to find out the truth tho
Isn’t that a picture of a man?
@Atinga You’ve also notice it too. This pictures of Yaa Asantewaa doesn’t bother me as much as the fake stories being told from generation to generation about Yaa Asantewaa. Yaa Asantewaa never picked a gun to fight the whites as being told in our history books. She rather brought up the idea and also encouraged other kings to fight the whites that’s all. It made her the brain behind the blacks standing up to fight the whites and that made her famous.
Ok… I don’t know about all that, all I know is the picture looks like a man
ayoo her ghost will come and meet u!! Anyway no wonder she was fighting alongside the men
Lol, what part of this woman looks like a man…? Looks like a woman to me. A man with 0 muscles?
This is a man. This is Asantehene Nana Agyeman Prempeh the first.
I know this because i have a book that he written with the help of his son.
There are not many pictures of Yaa Asantewaa but here’s one from the book from his Majesty Prempeh.
As you can see, Prempeh is in the middle (had too get a clean picture from google. Can’t see his face much because of the watermark) But, Yaa Asantewaa is the one sitting on the far left with the white head cap and clothing.
This is a picture from when Prempeh alongside Yaa Asantewaa and other followers were exiled from Kumasi to the Seychelles by the British after the War
Here’s a picture from the book with a description of names from left to right:
It’s a different picture but you can see it’s the same people. (Prempeh this time wearing a suit) @siaw
P.S the lady next to Prempeh is his mother, Yaa Kyiaa
He has dbee body… it’s quite natural lately!
I won’t doubt you again!
@Kwabena thanks a lot for your input and the resources!! I felt something was wrong but didn’t know enough to be sure. I’ll still keep his picture though (he’s still a Ghanaian) but I’m happy I finally know who’s picture Google shows as “Yaa Asantewaa”. Thanks a lot Kwabena
This is dbee body??? Ei!
Yeah you should. He was a great and wise King, in my opinion. Even though he received some criticism
