According to oral history, this wasn’t the only wonder that was displayed. The leader was born to parents from Awukugua in the Eastern Region.

Their names were Agya Annor(father) and Maame Nkobe(mother).

The leader was born Kwame Agyei Frimpong but changed to Okomfo (fetish priest) Anokye because he was destined to be a fetish priest.

At the time of his birth, he had an amulet in his hand which no one was able to take away. He became a close friend of Asantehene Osei Tutu I helping him to build the Asante Empire.
