Togbui Ngoryifia Céphas Kosi Bansah is 62 years old, head and owner of a vehicle workshop in Ludwigshafen and he is King.

A life story as how one often reads: As a young man Céphas Bansah came to Germany in 1970 as an exchange student, to undergo a training in Agricultural Machinery Mechanics in Ludwigshafen.

In 1992, after the death of his grandfather, the former king, he received a fax in which he was asked to take the throne. Then, Céphas Bansah had already done his masters, and had set up his own auto repair shop and started a family – leading a regular life in Germany.

Since his coronation, he has been following and carrying out events in his home country from his permanent residence in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, by mail, telephone and fax.

The king looks after the welfare of his people and has made numerous donations of money and supplies from Germany to fund projects. Schools, bridges and hospitals were and are being built, and the improvement of water supply is an on-going project.

In general, each village has its own soccer team, which then competes against teams from other villages. The royal team however recently has a significant advantage. After the final whistle, and the Royal team won by 2-1, it was clear that the victory must have been lying in the jerseys.

"The opportunity to travel with the king and get personal insights into the everyday lives of the people was unique. I want to thank you for this wonderful experience."
