Go back to your childhood and relearn your history because you’ve been fooled!
Yaa Asantewaa is currently trending on Twitter, a real strange trend for a Monday morning.
The reason – apparently her super popular photo which we all know of and which has been used for a statue in the Ashanti Region is a fake!
A twitter user pointed this out in a tweet which has since gone viral. Some celebrities have also been tweeting about it as everyone is in shock.
“An American Girl Theatre Arts Student poses as Yaa Asantewaa in a bulletproof war jacket and combat holding a gun and this image has gone all over the world with some people thinking that the picture is real Yaa Asantewaa,” the account wrote.
Celebs such as Lydia Forson and Ama K. Abebrese have also tweeted about the issue. Another person revealed that the apparent fake photo has been used for a statue in Ejisu.
Oh Ghana! Is there anything we can ever do right? This country is an embarrassment in all ways you can think of!
Anyway, according to Twitter, this is the real photo of Yaa Asantewaa…
