Thomas Frempong – Aye Yi Asona Records

Thomas Frempong, front

Today I got this sad news, Thomas Frempong who sang lead
vocals for Dr. K. Gyasi and the Noble Kings Band died after being
sick in the hospital for some time. It just so happens I had this
album waiting to get posted so here it is now. Let’s play him
again and remember his great vocal skills. Rest in peace
Thomas, we’ll get out all records you sang on and listen
to them again and again..

    So sad to hear about Thomas Frempong. He will be missed. On a brighter note today is King Sunny Ade&#39;s 67th birthday. Whenever you have the time can you upload on of his albums?<br /><br />Thanks<br /><br />Tony

    You can hear Thomas Frimpong&#39;s beautiful voice also on many other old highlife albums : on most of Dr. K. Gyasi&#39;s albums (Thomas Frimpong was the drummer and singer of K. Gyasi&#39;s Noble Kings), on Eric Agyemang&#39;s &quot;Highlife Safari&quot; and &quot;Wonko Menko&quot; albums,on the &quot;Highlife Stars One&quot; album, and on other albums released under his own name like &quot;
