New York cab company owner Isaac Osei lives a double life - as well as overseeing his taxi firm, he is also the chief of the Akwamu people where he dons a gold crown, resides in a palace and is treated like a king. The Ghanaian moved to the USA in 1977 to pursue his dreams and find his queen. He found love with fellow cab driver Elizabeth, and the couple eventually opened up their own cab company. Isaac was appointed the chief of the Akwamu in 2006 following the death of his brother, and acts as a leader to the inhabitants of five towns in his native country.
