Nana Kwame Ampadu is credited with numerous highlife songs and is regarded as one of Ghana’s legends in the music industry with over 800 songs to his credit.
He came to prominence in 1967 when he released his song Ebi Te Yie (or “Some Are Well Seated”), a song that was seen as potentially critical of the then-governing National Liberation Council and disappeared from the airwaves, only returning after the end of military rule.
In 1973 he won a nationwide competition in Ghana to be crowned the Odwontofoohene, or “Singer-in-Chief”.
Ampadu’s “African Brothers Band” was formed in 1963. One of the founding members was Eddie Donkor.
