Speaking about digging up old stuff, this rare piece of
Ghana highlife was brought to me by a friend. He travels
the world to find these treasures. First record I heard by
King Onyina, born Kwabena Onyina. His father used to have
a guitar and when he died and left it to Kwabena at the age of 13,
young King Onyina decided to make a living out of the instrument.
I have read somewhere on the web King Onyina passed away some 5
months ago. Let’s pay him respect in playing his music, listen.

10 Aboa a onni dua
11 Ma ye ankonam mmobro

this music is really beautiful, thank you!
More great Highlife! Thanks again Moos.
I was unsuccessfully searching for stuff by King Onyina just the other day, after listening to the tracks on “I’ve Found My Love” (posted at osibisaba.blogspot) so you’ve timed this one very well – Cheers!
Good Lord! You’re great or as they say back in my Ashanti village, “Wo ye buei”!!!
God bless you in all your endeavours.
Thanks a lot. This is sure evergreen in the true sense of the word.
Yes, King Onyina is King 🙂
just let me say thank you again 🙂
Please, please, please re-post this album. I've been looking for so long and can't find it on vinyl anywhere!<br />thanks
