Although Kente fabrics are renowned for their vibrant and vivid appearances, it is a truth that each one, in addition to having a distinctive design, also has its own importance and meaning.

On May 4, 2023, Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, had a special audience with Charles III, the future King of England.

He and his wife Lady Julia, who were in the UK as guests of the Crown for the crowning of Charles and Queen Consort Camilla on May 6, greeted the king shortly after their arrival.

The Asantehene was dressed in vivid Kente, while Lady Julia wore a kaba and slit made of Kente fabric. A picture of the newlyweds and the King appeared on the main page of The Daily Telegraph, a significant UK newspaper.

The significance of the specific garment the Asantehene wore to represent the King was explained on the Manhyia Palace’s Twitter account.

The May 4 tweet, which included images of the group, stated that the fabric Otumfuo is wearing is called “Wo sene wo ynko a tan wo,” which translates to “When you are better than your competitor, he envies you.”
