A woman from Aberdare has become an African queen

A woman from the South Wales Valleys travelled to Cameroon earlier this year to work on a project teaching farmers how to produce more food and preserve fruit and vegetables.

Carol Adams from Aberdare was then surprised to find herself at the centre of a ceremony anointing her Queen!

Ms Adams was anointed by His Majesty Djoumessi Wamba III as Ma’a Mafo Aguehebong.

The name he gave me means Benevolence or Good Deeds.

I want to continue to live up to my name.

This is a rare and huge honour and at the same time a huge responsibility, but one that I treasure.

Not only was I anointed as a Queen Mother in a sacred ceremony but also made one of the King’s advisors.

This is the highest honour a King can bestow.

I was initially shocked. It’s hard to believe that me, a woman from the Bronx, who now considers home to be Aberdare, is now a Queen.

– Ma’a Mafo Aguehebong Carol Adams, Foreke-Dschang

Ms Adams started a social and economic development project in Cameroon through the nonprofit Organisation, Taste Cameroon Community Enterprise.

Back in Wales, she has a company that gives food tours and experiences.
