Photos and details from Otumfuor’s 73rd Birthday in Mayfair, London



otumfuor's 73rd Birthday in Mayfair, London

Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II and his entourage had everything figured out after the King Charles Coronation on Saturday 6th May, 2023.

Coincidentally May 6th is the birthday of the Otumfuor.

Together, with his wife Lady Julia, were part of distinguished guests around the world who were invited to witness the coronation of King Charles the 3rd at the Westminster Abbey in London.

Nana and his crew had a grandeur plan to party hard after the church service and the luncheon that followed. On a lighter note, Otumfuor is a pure Asante man and the small tea and sandwiches which is quintessential to British parties won’t do him any justice 😂

As the whole pomp and pageantry of the coronation simmered down. The heat had picked up at the plush Claridges Hotel in London, Mayfair. Where a birthday dinner party was hosted in honour of the Otumfuor to mark his 73rd birthday.


Trust yours truly SociaLyte Gh to bring you the juicy tea of what happened in London.

The dinner had in attendance a high powered delegation drawn from the political class, royalty and the elite society from Ghana and London.

Below are photos of the high octave party.

Holy Child alumni illuminate the path forward amidst national school power crisis




In recent times, the narrative of power challenges in Ghanaian schools has escalated, with numerous public institutions such as Mfantsipim School, Accra Academy, and Mondo Senior High Technical School among others facing abrupt electricity disconnections. 

This persistent issue highlights the dire need for sustainable solutions in powering educational facilities, crucial for maintaining the quality of education.

Stepping into the spotlight with a pioneering initiative, the 1999 alumni of Holy Child School have set a remarkable precedent.

 In a bid to combat these electricity woes, these visionary women have successfully funded the transition of their alma mater to 75% solar energy. This initiative not only addresses the immediate problem of power outages and financial strains on the school’s budget but also serves as a beacon of climate-positive action with the potential for carbon credit benefits.

Founded in 1946 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Holy Child School has long stood as a bastion of educational excellence and societal impact in Ghana. Its alumni include distinguished personalities such as Ghana’s Ambassador to France, Anna Bossman; Goldman Sachs Vice President, Sabina Dankwah; and University of Ghana’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Amfo, to name a few.

The Solar Project

This solar project, a gift from the 1999 alumni commemorating their 25th anniversary and coinciding with the school’s 78th speech and prize-giving day, symbolizes a profound act of giving back and forward.

 In an exclusive interview with the Business and Financial Times, engineer Ing. Mrs. Sheila Enyonam Akyea, president of the year group, shared:  “This project builds on the foundation laid by our predecessors. We’re thrilled to extend their initial contribution, ensuring every corner of our school benefits. It’s our way of ensuring current and future students receive the same level of empowerment and opportunity we had.”

Project’s Committee Chair Ing. Mrs. Teresa Kyei-Mensah, mentioned the substantial investment the solar installation demands, emphasizing ongoing fundraising efforts.

she said: “Once completed, the initiative promises significant savings for the school and, by extension, the Ghana Education Service, redirecting funds towards essential educational resources,” she added.

Solar power, increasingly recognized for its affordability and environmental benefits, stands as a viable solution for Ghana’s educational sector and its broader climate goals. With abundant sunshine year-round, Ghana is ideally positioned to harness solar energy, reducing the financial burden on public resources while contributing to global carbon reduction efforts.

The project was completed in January 2024 after a 1-month testing phase. The year group eagerly anticipate the handover ceremony at the 78th Speech and Prize-Giving Day of Holy Child School in Cape Coast on Saturday, 9th March 2024 marking a significant milestone in their commitment to sustainable development and quality education in Ghana. 

This initiative not only lights the way for other schools grappling with similar challenges but also underscores the powerful impact of alumni engagement in shaping a brighter future for the next generation.
