Asantewaa- battle for the Golden Stool” is a modern retell of the story of the great Yaa Asantewaa, who exhibited pure bravery when she led the Ashanti rebellion against British Colonialism in 1900. She led her people to fight the British to protect the Golden stool which was and still remains the symbol and pride of the Ashanti Kingdom. When we think of superheroes, we usually see them as people dressed in costumes who have the ability either fly, breath fire, punch through brick walls or even shoot webs. However, there are individuals who do not have of these special abilities but have done great things and these are the real heroes. These are our heroes and Africa particularly our motherland Ghana has seen the existence of many super heroes. The problem however is our failure to acknowledge these great men and women as the heroes they are instead we have warmly embraced the fictional heroes created for us in movies and in books.
