Homecoming, bonfire night herald Ada Asafotufiami

Aqua Safari Resort will play host to a homecoming and bonfire night to herald the annual Asafotufiami festival of the Chiefs and people of Ada on Wednesday August 2, 2017.


The week-long event which ends on August 10 will bring together sons and daughters of Ada, both home and abroad together to celebrate a festival, which is in its 80th year of existence.

This year’s celebration also coincides with the 40th year of reign  of the  Paramount Chief of Ada Traditional Area, Nene Abram Kabu Akuaku III.

Asafotufiami festival is one of the biggest festivals in Ghana, attended by hundreds of people from all walks of life.  Asafotufiami, which means firing of muskets, is celebrated annually to mark the heroic performance of the ancestors for Ada to safeguard their lands and property from their enemies
