The Ashantis are undoubtedly the largest tribe in Ghana, with a population estimated at 12 million people, and they can be found in Ghana, Togo and Ivory Coast. 🇬🇭

The Ashanti people, who are a subgroup of the Akan, speak the Twi language, a language that is now ranked as one of the most spoken in West Africa. Their capital was Kumasi, one of the largest cities in Ghana. 🇬🇭

Some of the majority of Ashanti people are Christians , who strongly believe in the power of Jesus. Some are traditional worshippers, while a growing population of Muslims can also be found. 🇬🇭

According to the history of these great people, the Ashanti kingdom was found in the 1600s, in the midst of a land that was full of gold and that served as a major trade between them and the Europeans. 🇬🇭

Many Ashantis exist in Caribbean countries, especially in Jamaica, where there is a clear Ashanti influence in the Jamaican name, dress, and physical appearance.

The Ashanti, like many tribes, have their own delicious foods such as Fufu, Mpoto Mpoto, and others that have already been hijacked by other tribes who find them more delicious. 🇬🇭

Ashanti also participated in the booming business of West Africa in the olden days, in which a bigger empire would invade the smaller one and capture its citizens in order to sell them as slaves to the Europeans.

Many Ashantis fought tirelessly for the quick independence of Ghana, and they successfully made it the second west African country to get independence, lagging only behind Liberia. 🇬🇭
