2019 Agotime Kente Festival marked in style

This year’s Agbamevorza (Kente Festival) of the chiefs and people of the Agotime-Ziope Traditional Area was marked in grand style with an exhibition of beautiful Kente designs.

It was, indeed, a day for Kente, as the indigenes, tourists, and visitors who thronged the durbar ground were dressed smartly in Kente outfits, fusing tradition with modernity. The festival has, since 2005, been celebrated to showcase the uniqueness of Kente as a matchless indigenous fabric from Ghana. Also, it is to draw attention to the aesthetic and cultural values of the Kente cloth. The week-long celebration which ended on August 10, 2019, featured a series of activities, including a Kente weaving contest, which saw master weavers exhibiting their creativity.

The Paramount Chief of the Agotime-Ziope Traditional Area, Nene Nuer Keteku III, in an address, called for government’s assistance to complete a Kente village project which would be a  one-stop-shop to market the works of local weavers to the rest of the world. The celebration was on the theme: ‘Celebrating the Iconic heritage of Kenke’.

About xorlali

H i   e v e r y o n e ! This is my very first blog post ever! And nope, I am not ashamed to say I have no idea what the heck I’m doing yet. BUT, I am learning everyday and can’t wait to share & connect with you all! So if you’re into all things travel, lifestyle, entertainment, and relationship, then you, my love, are in the right place! I feel like a first blog post should probably introduce you a little bit to the person actually writing the blog, right? Right! Welllll then here we go! I’m 21 years old and live in Tema Ghana. I’m just your average Starbucks &Target obsessed girlfriend who loves finding great deals . I overuse emojis like my life depends on it (specifically the laughing and heart emojis). I’m just about as awkward/clumsy/embarrassing as a person can come. & I’d like to personally thank years of sleep deprivation for my crazy personality. So basically what I’m trying to say is that I ain’t got the first clue what I’m doing (between this blog, travel, lifestyle, entertainment ,relationship etc. lol) and I am not going to strive to be perfect over here. I’m super chill and like to keep it about as real as it gets! Ya feel me?! So if you came here expecting to find great grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, or perfectly planned out professional posts, then you probably should have clicked away like 5 minutes ago lol. If I haven’t scared you off yet, and I sound like your cup of tea, then HELLOOO new friend! We will get along great! Leave a comment or shoot me a DM, I want to get to know you! So excited for this new journey together! Merci Xorlali
