Got another artwork in progress. An artwork of my favorite African female warriors and female leaders, Queen Nana Yaa Asantewaa of Ejisu in the Asante/Ashanti Kingdom. This unfinished but beautiful work of art is done in an 18x24 canvas frame. #YaaAsantewaa #QueenYaaAsantewaa #Asantekingdom #Ashantikingdom #Ashanti #Ejisu #Ghana #Blackartwork #africanart #BlackArt #AfricanArtwork #africanwarrior #Blackwarrior #AfricanQueen #QueenNana #queenmotheryaaasantewaa #QueenMother #CanvasArt #CanvasArtwork

Checking out space for our relaunch event on the 18 August (save the date) with massive support from Nicholas @pempeople. Looking for forward to working more with you. 🙏🏾

I will never stop fighting against this Babylon System. I walk in the footsteps of Queen Nanny, Yaa Asantewaa, Harriet Tubman and more. Not the white man or woman or their Gods and religion. Peace, Love, & Light 💫💕💯 #PanAfrican #RBG #African #YaaAsantewaa #QueenNanny #HarrietTubman #BlackPower #BlackLiberation #ExitTheBabylonMatrix #Neo #TheOne

Once upon a time in EJISU, unfortunately you won’t see this sight again from your VIP during your Kumasi-Accra journey.

Hello Thursday 💃💃💃.. #YaaAsantewaa #hisonlychick😍

#repost @princessericaofbanmu #RoyalDiaries001 - Soul Name
Did you know... That the #Akan Traditional Calendar, originating from the #ancient #Nubian #Customary #Law, has 8 days in a week known as "Nnawotwe"?
Children are named after the days of the week they were born, this is known as the #SoulDay "Kra Da". Therefore the name of one's Soul Day becomes one's #SoulName for males and females respectively.

For instance:
Sunday "Kwesida" : Kwesi (m) - Akosua/Akos (f)
Monday "Dwowda" : Kwadwo (m) - Adwoa (f)
Tuesday "Benada" : Kwabena (m) - Abena (f)
Wednesday "Wukuda" : Kwaku (m) - Akua (f)
Thursday "Yawda" : Yaw (m) - Yaa (f)
Friday "Fida" : Kofi (m) - Afua/Afia (f)
Saturday "Memenda" : Kwame (m) - Ama (f)

#KwameNkrumah was born on Saturday.
#KofiAnnan was born on Friday.
#YaaAsantewaa was born on Thursday.

Today is my #SoulDay, and my #SoulName is AKUA!

What is your #SoulName?

.|Yaa Asantewaa, 1840 - 1921, New month, new illustration from the Black Herstory Year 2018 Calendar. Let’s delve into the African herstory books for while and acquire knowledge of self|.
.
.|When the Ejusi King of the Asante Empire was captured by the British and exiled to a plantation in Seychelles, his grandmother the Queen Mother Yaa Asantewaa, was invited to meet with his captors. The British Governor General of the Gold Coast demanded that the Asante people bring him their sacred Golden throne to sit on as a symbol of their subordination to British colonial rule. This request was particularly offensive, as the golden stool was not made for sitting, but as a symbol of the living, dead and yet to be born spirits of the Asante people. Totally disgusted with the governor’s request Yaa Asantewaa gave this speech to the chiefs of Asante|.
.
.
.|”Is it true that the bravery of Asante is no more? I cannot believe it. It cannot be! I must say this: if you, the men of Asante, will not go forward, then we will. I shall call upon my fellow women. We will fight the white men. We will fight til the last of us falls on the battlefield|. .
.
.
.|Shortly after this speech the Asante declared war on the British, Yaa Asantewaa was chosen to be the war leader and immediately laid siege to the Kumasi Fort where the British governor had taken refuge |.

so, i was walking from my hotel to the conference hotel wearing this t-shirt. a random brother stopped me and asked me how to pronounce nzinga’s name, i pronounced it for him. then he said, ‘so who are they, your babies?’ i paused, in a bit of shock, but then kindly explained to the brother who each woman is on my shirt and their role in freedom fighting for our communities. they are not my daughters; i am their son. one of the reasons i wear these types of shirts is to represent our ancestors but also to spark conversations —- even one’s that i don’t anticipate having. #NCORE #NCORE2018 #Nzinga #Assata #IdaBWells #YaaAsantewaa #HarriettTubman #WarriorWomen

I want my music to reflect my true personality. That’s mainly why I have chosen to go by my real name as an artist. Yes, I’m going to deal in reality but I’m also going to carve out a path toward the bright side. The way my faith is set up, I’m always seeking to spot the triumph inside the tragedy. ✊🏾 Just wait til you hear this new song tho! 🔥 🎶
Stay tuned - .
