    NYC - W. African Religion Festival, Saturday April 15, 2006


    The Onipa Abusia, an Akan religious and cultural organization, invites you to

    our Nana Asuo Botopre Festival.

    Onipa Abusia maintains and preserves the traditional culture and spiritual

    practice of the Akan people of Ghana, West Africa, which was established

    in America by the late Nana Yao Opare Dinizulu I, founder of the Dinizulu

    African Dancers, Drummers and Singers.

    Please join us as we pay homage to Nana Asuo Botopre. Nana Asuo

    Botopre is an ancient male deity from the Ashanti region of Ghana.

    Nana Asuo Botopre states that he was with God (Nyame) when He

    created the earth. Asuo Botopre councils and helps all who come to him.

    This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Asuo Botopre Festival.
