Apollo International Band of Ghana

We had a couple of his records, Dan Amakye Dede
and his Apllo International Band of Ghana. He started
as composer and treble singer with the Kumapim Royals.
In 1980 he began forming his own group. The first record
they made was “To be a man na wah !”, I have it waiting
for another occasion, it is scratched a little. Today we’ve
got their second album which was a huge succes in 1984.
Recorded in Onitsha, Nigeria. Listen..


01 – Jealousy
02 – Yaba
03 – Abusua
04 – Ife anyi chukwu
05 – Mensuro

    Great music. There’s a version of “Jealousy” on an Amakye Dede CD (Dabi Dabi), however, it’s about 3 min. shorter and not as sweet as the LP version. The other tracks were compiled on his “To Be a Man” CD. Thanks.

    Does anyone know if this is the same band as APOLLO HIGHKINGS INT. BAND OF GHANA? They have a great album called “Suffer” that I’ve been looking to hear again for a while now.
