The tale of the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, Ghana, is truly captivating. The moniker “Manhyia,” signifying “gathering of the people,” perfectly encapsulates its role as the official abode of the Asantehene. The palace complex, housing both the old and new structures, embodies a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. The conversion of the old palace into a museum in 1995 marked a significant milestone in preserving the heritage of the Ashanti Kingdom. Today, the Manhyia Palace Museum not only serves as the dwelling of the current Asantehene but also showcases a diverse array of artifacts and historical treasures that narrate the rich history of the Ashanti Kingdom.

In a video by blogger SkBeatz Records, the first refrigerator in Kumasi, now 74 years old, is showcased. The AMCOR 10 fridge from Israel, originally powered by kerosene, was converted to run on electricity and still works effectively. It was used by Nana Osei Agyeman Prempeh II in 1950. “The only maintenance so far was, it was using a kerosene power and we have converted it to electricity.” The tour guide revealed in his conversations with Blogger Skbeatz Records and his colleagues.

The museum also displays teacups, plates, and bowls used by the king for 39 years, as well as his teapot from the Seychelles Islands.

This video has sparked conversations online, with some people expressing doubt about the claims. The Manhyia Palace Museum is a place one needs to visit.

The fame and recognition are not for me; I value my privacy above all else,” says Dicle, reflecting on her decision to remain anonymous. From a young age, she made the bold decision to forge her own path, determined to make a difference in the lives of artists while staying out of the public eye.

Looking to the future, Dicle remains tight-lipped about her aspirations, preferring to let her work speak for itself. However, she expresses her excitement at the prospect of collaborating with more international artists and continues to be grateful for the global impact of her VPA method.
