A Man Named BEDIIAKO

A Man Named BEDIIAKO
A MAN NAMED BEDIIAKO

In 1974, I had this vision of forming the first African rock band in the world. I went to the UK, bought nearly £4,000 of musical equipment and returned to Ghana. Together with FRANCIS ASIEDU, as manager, we selected 3 of the most talented and promising musicians we could find -- ABEE MENSAH (keyboards), ALEX "PAA KWESI" ARKO (bass), ASIE DEE (drums) -- and put together A BAND NAMED BEDIIAKO, the first NON-COPYRIGHT BAND IN GHANA.

I hired a 7 bedroom house in MADINA, a suburb of Accra and started to put together AFRICA's FIRST ROCK BAND. For 5 months, the 4 of us rehearsed from 7 in the morning till 11 pm in the night, 6 days a week, Sundays being our rest day when we all got in the Unimog and spent the day at Labadi beach.
