About me

I would like to begin by saying thank you very much to all who are supporting us so that we can make Anokye happen. You can contact me directly by email if you have any questions. ofosuhene.akua@gmail.com. thank you very much again. we are truly touched by everyone's generosity. I am a filmmaker and fashion designer with a background in documentaries. I am currently in post production with ‘A Sword in a Stone’ – a feature documentary about Okomfo Anokye the Shaman who thrust the immovable sword into the ground in 17th century Ghana and united the clans of Akan. In 2007 I shot and edited ‘Queen Yaa Asantewaa and the Golden Stool’, a documentary about a sixty year old grandmother who leads a war against the British when they demand the Golden Stool of Asante in 1900. It was this story that introduced me to the Anokye legend. I also started the film educational project ‘Closing the Gap’ which takes positive films about Africa into UK schools. In 2009 I extended my screening programme to rural villages in Ghana. In 2007, I made my directorial debut on a drama with ‘Keep Her’ and won the Images of Black women 2nd best new comer award. I currently live in Accra and have an African wear and arts n crafts shop in Kokolemle called Freedom Country GH.
