Kakaiku\'s Band - Adadam Paa Nie, vol.2Ambassador MP3/Flac







































Moses Kwaku Oppong, the leader of Kakaiku's Guitar Band,

was born in 1916 in Acra. He quitt elementary school aged

fourteen just to be able to play his guitar. The Nigerian tenant

that worked at his parent's house used to shout at him; 'Kai ku'

meaning; 'look here' or 'hi Kwaku', this became his nickname.

He worked as blacksmith, winch greaser and driver of engines

at Aboso Gold Mines and played his guitar at parties, wake-

keepings and funerals. He named his band after his childhood

nickname and made over 500 records, an enormous amount.
