There are lots of things that come to mind when Ashanti Region and its capital Kumasi is dropped in a conversation but the very one which highlights is how people from there seem to pronounce every word with ‘r’ or ‘l’ in it wrongly.
You are considered lucky to hail from any town in the Ashanti Region because people from here pride themselves as true royals. They believe they are the true descendants of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene(The Asantehene is the absolute monarch of the Asante people and the historical Kingdom of Asante.)
When it comes to their men, they are arguably hard working. They would do just about everything at all to make money which stems from the fact that, they love to live the luxury life. It should be noted that, they are big time braggarts too.
A typical Kumasi man can boldly tell you he owns the airport with no quiver of emotion at all and see to it that you believe him.
Kumasi ladies on the other hand are different— they are not so much into bragging but love to live a life of extravagance.
‘…)y3 preman ni baa…’ is some of the phrases you are likely to hear when you find yourself in the midst of Kumasi ladies. ‘Preman’ connotes the sort of flamboyant life they enjoy living. These ladies love to chill, likes to live their lives to the very latter enjoying even the littlest life luxury.
Unlike other regions whose ladies have mixed complexion, Kumasi ladies are mostly dark, dripping melanin. These ladies are fleshy; they have fat faces couple with huge behinds and heavy bosom.
Ladies from here are not passive at all. They have an opinion on any subject at all even if it is not what you want to hear, they would say it anyways. Their feisty nature is a trait that makes then even more adorable and loved.
Kumasi ladies may not be your first dial when it comes to character and role model figures but they have high morals. They are nurtured, they believe in marriage, family and sticking to the norms of society.
If you are a man and thinking of marriage, do not look beyond Kumasi because they have tall yards of marriage materials with varied colours, shades and patterns.
You won’t regret making a home with one of the treasures of Otumfuo himself.
