Daystar in my heart appear whenever l hear your voice so dear
And this is you Osei Tutu the first.

  1. This piece is so culturally and relatively dynamic. I say the poetess wove this piece from a deeper reflection of truly Ghanaian and Asante culture.
    Kudos to you #AsaaseYaa and am expecting more of this…..
