Alhaji K. Frimpong — Kyenkyen Bi Adi Mawu
I was introduced to this tape by a certain Aaron K. Snyder, of the band The Assdroids. I later went to Ghana and bought myself a copy. There have been tracks from this album posted here in the past, but I am finally throwing up the complete recording. There are many Alhaji K. Frimpong CDs available commercially. Please buy them.

A big thank you for this superb tracks! I am looking for any K. Frimpong tunes available – fell under his spell from the tracks in “Ghana Soundz” vol. 1 & 2. Keep up this awsome work – Iraklis from Athens
K. FRIMPONG IS THE BEST
thanks for all your work
i can’t get these to download. I’ve tried a few times on different days and I keep getting timeout messages. Any help? I love Frimpong and would appreciate any more tapes you have as well. Much love
some tracks work (A2, A4) and the others dont. Is it possible to update download of the cassette one more time?
thanks for all
Hello, yes, There are problems with most of these files, could you please re-upload them? I’ve been looking for this song for years, I had a tape of it but lost it. It is in fact simply amazing, and I was glad to find out that I’m not the only one who loves it. Thanks a lot for sharing this. May Frimpong R.I.P.
Anybody know who Frimpong’s drummer is on this? Fucking amazing.
I don’t know his real name but his knick name was kwaku kung fu on the album.He played for vis a vis as well.
Thanks for sharing this great music!!! Most of the bloggers out there that actually have this music hoard it all to themselves which just sucks since it’s so hard to find this material. Thanks for not being one of the hoarders. You rule.
Thanks. This is truly amazing and great stuff. Thanks for Frimpong and this incredible drummer kwaku kung fu.
I dunno if I can compete with all the great deals listed above, but THANKS for this one. Hot stuff!
A couple of weeks ago I was in a small tape shop in Ho, Volta Region, Ghana, and I saw this tape! There were hundreds of tapes in the shop, and this was the only one I recognised. It made me smile. It’s partly due to music blogs like you that I went to Ghana in the first place. Thanks!
HI BRO’ § MUCH RESPECT FOR YOUR TRIBUTE TO THE AFRICAN SOUL § PEACE
Mensu and Susu Ne Wonka seem to be down here
thanks again for posting these/ getting onto reupload requests and putting up with all this crazy spam… :)
hey thanks! i fixed those song links….
Kwaku Kung Fu should be a household name and/or sampled a whole bunch. GREAT tape, Mensu weirdly made me think of those old Yardbirds-style rave-ups…
Cheers for reups, no doubt I’ll be pestering you more as I’m working my way back through :P
now it’s confirmed…A.T.f.A is the best afro-music education site, period. any questions? we though so.
thanks for such great post.

Thanks for this one. I’m not really a fan of the synth pop period, but somehow this one grabbed me despite the keyboards & I guess that’s a sign of quality! Great stuff, thank you.
[…] coolest (and possibly longest running?) of the regional tape blogs. A seemingly endless supply of reliably potent plunder some of which they’re now reissuing. BTW, LA folks should go hear Brian Shimkovitz aka DJ Awesome […]
I want to download the song
I like alhaji k frimpong
