Known in private life as Justice Daniel Mensah, a high court judge, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang-Badu II ascended the Dormaa throne after the demise of his grand uncle, the late Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang-Badu I in 1998.

The paramount chief is known for his   overall interest in the well-being and holistic development of not only the Dormaa people, but the nation in general.

“Osagyefo’s anniversary celebration is worthwhile and we will forever be grateful to him” says Barima Ansu Gyeabour, the Krontinhene of Dormaa, and Chief of Wamfie.

His achievements span from promoting peace, education, and youth development and humanitarian services. His reign has brought unprecedented peace, reconciliation and stability in the Dormaa kingdom, which has established the foundation blocks for cooperation among chiefs and people of the area home and abroad

 Osagyefo has successfully dealt with contentions and chieftaincy disputes at Dormaa Akwamu, Aboabo Number 4, Chiraa, Nsuhia and many others.

On education, the King has established the Dormaaman Traditional Education Endowment Fund (DORMEF), to support needy but brilliant students by providing scholarships to more than 2000 students in the area at various levels of education.

His quest for education in his kingdom led to his facilitation of the establishment of the School of Agriculture and Technology and School of Geosciences of the University of Energy and Natural Resources in Dromaa-Ahenkro.

Osagyefo’s passion for sports is unparalleled. He has contributed immensely to sports development in the country. Aside the assistance he offers to the Ghana Football Association and the Premier League Board, Dormaahene has also founded the Aduana Football Club and guided the team to annex the premier league trophy in their first year in the topflight.
