City Boys International - Merefre No

I am befuddled at the realization that this is the first City Boys International music to appear on this blog.   As they say here in Los Angeles... "Whoa"


City Boys International Band led by Obuoba J. A. Adofo

Merefre No

year: 1982

side one:   Sikyi Medley – Merefre no – Na mese odo mmra – Yee naa – Kesewa – Yaw donko owora – So wo tuo mu

"Obuoba J. A. Adofo a.k.a. The Black Chinese a.k.a. Chairman Muo, is the Leader of the City Boys Band of Ghana. Highly remembered and adored for his love songs, Adofo and his Ghana's City Boys band are news headliners whenever they perform in Ghana. Nephew of Nana Ampadu (African Brothers Band) and humbly began as a lotto receiver in Accra (Mamprobi) has risen to stardom unsurpassed in Ghana's music history. Almost every mature Ghanaian knows or have heard of Adofo's music. A live dance or concert party performance without playing the ever popular "Ankwanobi" is a receipt for courting disaster at any City Boys band's program. " - Discogs

Prekese GhanaMedia said...The great one.......Obouba no doubt represents a true social commentator. Ghana loves you.
Charles Okolonji said... Ghana music reigned supreme in Onitsha and Aba in the 70's and 80's! It was the main music in palm wine parlors while relishing "ngwo-ngwo isi ewu" Lord, the world has changed!
