EARLY LIFE 
Dennis Afram, artistically known as Osagyefo, was born in Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Osagyefo was born to Madam Christiana Afram and Mr Kwaku Acheampong in Kumasi the Ashanti region of Ghana. He attended Atwimaman Secondary school in Taabuom in the Ashanti region.
MUSIC CAREER
Osagyefo originally started his music career in Kumasi as a  Raggamuffin artist using the stage name “Ragga”. Eventually, he moved to Accra the capital city of Ghana, in order to pursue his musical career. In the late ’90s, Osagyefo formed a band with the name“The Militant Youth”. The band turns out to be one of the leading bands in Ghana’s Rasta festivities. Moreover, he formed another band in 2003 called “The All-Star Crew”. The band became very successful which landed them more high gig paid performance in restaurants and hotels in Greater Accra.
In 2006, Osagyefo was able to build and establish a reputable brand as a great professional artist. His reputation in the music scenes in Ghana got him to mount on the same stage with Bob Marley’s family at a concert dubbed ”Bob Marley Tribute Concert”.  There were bigger and greater artists on the concert bill which include the likes of Ziggy Marley, Stephen Marley, Damian Marley, The I Three (Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths), the late Joseph Hill of Culture, Steel Pulse, Chakademus, and Pliers as well as The C Sharp Band from Jamaica.
However, in 2006, The Black Star Foundation, a music management team company, invited Osagyefo to tour the Netherlands. The tour was extremely successful which resulted in the release of his first album called “Blazed Fire” produced by Tuff Lion and Warren from the Virgin Islands and Asher E from the Netherlands. The official release for the album was in 2007 at a Holland venue called “Bitterzout”. During 2007, Osagyefo was also in Holland performing on stage with the likes of Alpha Blondy in one of Amsterdam’s large and famous venues, Melkweg.
Over the course of his career, Osagyefo has performed in Europe with some of Reggae’s biggest superstars:  Daddy U Roy, Anthony B, Mykal Rose, Etana, Lord Sassafras, Brigadier Jerry, Perfect, Black Scorpio, and many more.  On national Ghana stages, he has performed with international touring stars such as Tony Rebel, Turbulence, Mutabaruka, Mighty Diamonds, Eric Donaldson, Jan Turban, and Norris Man, etc. Osagyefo released his second album in Ghana in 2012 called “Simple Entertainer”.  He has also released singles such as “Every Hustler” and “Whole Place Turn Up”.  Due to his great professionalism and deep passion, we can expect to see much more from this much-requested amazingly talented artist.  His reputation has been well established both nationally in Ghana and internationally and will only continue to grow.  Osagyefo’s brand-new album called “Reality Check” was released in February 2019
