Played on NET2 TV’s the Seat show on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, a voice purported to be that of Heward-Mills went on a run of harsh criticisms against Otumfuo.
Among other things, he described the Asantehene’s reign as useless, claiming that his time as a king has not brought a positive impact on the Asante people.
According to him, a good king leaves a good legacy for his people but all Otumfuo does is drive around in cars and organize lavish anniversary celebrations and funerals.

“If the Otumfuo or whoever is there is the real king of the people, when he goes we say this is what he did for the Asante people…not that he ate more food, travelled to Europe or had more wives and children. “That is not the art of being a king…even two-year-olds have birthday parties and every day there is a celebration…one year, 40 days…that is all.”
He also blasted those who often liken the Asantehene to the biblical King Solomon to be very careful because the wealth King Solomon created for his family cannot be compared to that of the Asantehene. Do you know what King Solomon built?…Be very careful when your giving such a nickname to somebody…we are often the most useless types of kings that ever existed.”
The host of the Seat, Justice Kweku Annan, disclosed that the audio was recorded from a meeting between Heward-Mills and some of his pastors and church elders.
