Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II was enstooled in 1977 following the death of her predecessor Nana Ama Serwaa Nyarko II who reigned from 1945 to 1977. The late Queen Mother has since been an omnipresent force in the Asante Kingdom, overseeing the reign of the late Otumfuor Opoku Ware II (1970-1999), and her son, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II, since 1999

We are deeply saddened by the death of the Asantehemaa. May her soul rest in perfect peace
