The title of Nkosuohene of Asanteman was instituted and conferred on the late Mr. E.K. Osei, a well known businessman, by the late Asantehene, Otumfuo Opoku Ware II, during the Golden Jubilee of the restoration of the Asante Kingdom for his enormous contribution to the development of Asanteman.

Nana Osei Kwame Kyeretwie, who is the son of the first Asanteman Nkosuohene, Nana Osei Kwasi Nkwantabisa, swore the Oath of Allegiance with the Mponponsuo Sword to the Asantehene at Manhyia Palace on June 26, 2023, to assume the new role.

Otumfuo advised the new Chief to serve in his capacity as the Asanteman Nkosuohene in humility, by following the footsteps of his father and oversee the overall development of the Kingdom.

Nana Kwame Kyeretwie thanked Otumfuo for the honour done him, by accepting him to serve Asanteman, and promised to deliver on his mandate to ensure the total development, in line with the vision of the Ashanti King.
