Whenever the first note of the Guitar solo is heard, this 70s high life hit immediately reminds one of popular TV Series entitled, The New Masquerade.
It was performed by Raphael Amarabem, a former sideman in Rex Lawson’s Mayors Band of Nigeria and his Peacocks International Band.
Amarabem had played for some years in Ghana (commonly regarded as home of high life) and the Peacocks epitomized the Nigerian trend toward guitar-based highlife in the seventies.
Eddie Quansa has been remixed by many young artistes including the most recent in Cinderella by Olu Maintain featuring 2face Idibia.
