A collective biography of eight siblings Ahowi and Adu-Gyamfi has been launched in Accra. The 471page book titled “Children of House No.D13 South Suntreso Kumasi”, is published by DigiBooks Ghana limited.
The collective biography book of eight siblings which captures some untold stories of an Ahowi and Adu-Gyamfi siblings of their career, which spans over two decades was outdoored.
The book titled; “Children of House No.D13 South Suntreso Kumasi” is a collection of life stories of eight children and also unravels the collective name of the three Ahwoi brothers, Ato Ahwoi, Kwesi Ahwoi, and Kwamena Ahwoi who have played prominent roles in Ghana’s recent history and the other five sisters who have also played their part to the contribution and the development of the country.
A former Minister of Finance in former President Jerry John Rawlings’s administration, Prof. Kwesi Botchwey who gave the keynote address deemed it a great honour and pleasure to associate himself with the book launch of Children of House No.D13 South Suntreso Kumasi and recounted the roles the Ahwois played in the Provisional National Defense Council era which he said was remarkable.
He said it was imperative to celebrate individuals who had contributed to the development of the country and the remarkable togetherness and the mutual support system that enable them to overcome the many hurdles along their part in life.
Prof. Botchwey expressed the hope that the youth of today will learn some lessons from the book, leaving out the negatives and accentuating the positives.
The former Chairman of the National Media Commission, Nana Kwasi Gyan Apenteng who was the reviewer of the book said the book catalogs the biography of the eight siblings and that it is very interesting to read.
He added that the book reads more like a thriller than a biography stressing that the story is told with a lot of humour.
According to, Nana Kwasi Gyan Apenteng for such a collective recall of personal histories to work, a principal requirement is a willingness of all parties involved to treat the project seriously; of equal importance is the need to treat everyone’s personal history as important, which is what the book has succeeded in doing.
He further stated that it would be bright to describe it as an exercise in literacy democracy adding that, it is not every book project that produces a good book, but the book has done so because at the heart of the project is a good story.
Nana Kwasi Gyan Apenteng reiterated that the heart of that good story is human progress against the odds capsuled in the life of eight individuals.
“The book achieves the purpose of showing the remarkable togetherness and the mutual support system that enabled the children of House No.D13 South Suntreso, Kumasi to overcome the many hurdles along their paths in life as being due to their mother Madam Charlotte Hudson (Mrs. Ahwoi).
The Executive Chairman of Jospong Group, Joseph Siaw Agyepong, who launched the Book revealed that the Ahwoi’s have impacted his life as an Entrepreneur hence his presence to officially launch it.
He bought the first copy at 50 thousand Ghana Cedis whilst the second copy was bought at 70 thousand Ghana Cedis by the first son of Mr. Ato Ahwoi.
