Another Ghanaian highlife group I have cherished from
the first time I laid my ears on them is this one. I had to
borrow the sleeve from Discogs for my copy came to me
with the wrong cover when I bought it. Nana Agyeman
Opambuo was born in Feyiase, Ashanti region in 1954.
After leaving school he became a singer with Afro Boateng
Band and later with Kwabena Akwaboah Band. The boy
with the golden voice he was called and his first hit was
‘Maniso Tan Me’. He started his own group with the
financial support of producer A.K. Brobbey.
Nog zo’n fijne Ghanese groep die ik koester vanaf de eerste
keer dat ik ze hoorde is deze. Ik heb de hoes van Discogs
moeten lenen omdat mijn exemplaar met een verkeerde hoes
kwam toen ik hem kocht. Nana Agyeman Opambuo werd
geboren in Feyiase, Ashanti region in 1954. Na zijn schooltijd
werd hij zanger bij Afro Boateng Band en later bij de Kwabena
Akwaboah Band. De boy with the golden voice werd hij genoemd
en zijn eerste hit was ‘Maniso Tan Me’. Hij begon zijn eigen band
met de financiele steun van producer A.K. Brobbey.
In the clip we hear ‘Hu anim ase nkyene’ from
the album ‘Show Me Your Love’.

Very nice. Many thanks.
Wow! Another amazing upload. In my opinion the best 5 highlife bands from Ghana are: African Brothers, City Boys, Opambour, K.K No. 2 and Alex Konadu. Thanks to you Moos I have got most of their albums and looking forward to getting more from you 😀. Thanks once again.
Feyiase’s finest … the man with the golden voice.
The YouTube video posted by moos makes it even more fun. Good old days of the Afro hair, bell bottom pants and the platform shoes.
Can i have opampour video on utube?
My top 5 is similar to your list but I will replace k.k. no. 2 with K Frimpong
I honestly haven’t heard enough of K Frimpong to put him on any list. I only have one album of his which is a complication title: Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu. It seems his albums/songs are rare to come by. Hopefully some day I will get to listen to more of his stuff to appreciate his works more
K.Gyasi & Noble Kings, Yamoah’s, Ampofo Adjei, Sweet Talks and Okukuseku will complete my Top 10 (not in any particular order)!
wow! Amazing but i never had his video not even live band.
