HISTORY OF KOTOSO
The early settler’s of Kotoso were of the Asona Clan racially and linguistically akin to Mpreaso and Kyebi (Kibi) in Akyem Abuakwa. They were of one matrilineal descent. Acco0rding to Kotoso legend, the ancestress Nana Gyaben Gyenima, daughter of Akua Nwia, haile d from Akyem Ahwenease near Kyebi.
She was the Queen – Mother of the place, having succeeded her grand – mother Boaa, whose name follow the dirge.
Ahwenea Boaa Nana – eno Okyemni; Akwae nsu a, ani Kronkron literally, Ahwenea Boaa
‘s grandchild of Akyem; a forest water that is clean.
“KOTOSO” literally meaning, the town built near the Koto stream. This Stream is a tributary of the Afram.
The immigration of Gyaben Gyenima and her party from Akyem Ahwenease to Okwawu probably in the latter eighteenth Century, was in protest against the enstoolment of Beribe Labe instead of her brother Ankora Boampon, the heir – presumptive, Nana Gyaben Gyenima was in possession of an ancentral stool from Adanse Akrofuom, the aboriginal home. However, she left Ankora Boampong at Akyem Ahwenease to make good his claim to the stool as by prerogative right.
