More About Sanwi Region:

The Kingdom of Sanwi is a traditional kingdom located in the southeast corner of the Republic of Ivory Coast in West Africa. It was established in about 1740 by Anyi migrants from Ghana. In 1843 the kingdom became a protectorate of France. In 1959 it was merged with Ivory Coast and at that time the tribal population was estimated to be around 40,000 people in 119 settlements.

The original core of these people is in Ghana where conflicts between Opokou Warreh (Ashanti) and them (Agni) created the reason for a departure to the Ivory Coast.

The kingdom received much attention after declaring American singer Michael Jackson to be the King of the Sanwi in 1992. Reciprocal visits by Michael Jackson and King Amon N'Douffou IV were made to Krindjabo and Los Angeles respectively. After Jackson's death in 2009, an elaborate two-day funeral was held in Sanwi. Jesse Jackson (no relation) was declared prince in August of that year when he was crowned Prince Nana by Amon N'Douffou V, Amon N'Douffou IV's successor as king of Sanwi.
