ET Mensah: “We urgently wanted an indigenous rhythm to replace the fading foreign music of waltz, rumba, etc. We evolved a music relying on basic African rhythms. A criss-cross African cultural sound, so to speak. No one can really lay claim to its creation. It had always been there, entrenched in West African culture. What I did was give highlife world acceptance.”

Like Nigeria’s Victor Olaiya said, “ET Mensah was an inspiration to me… He in fact dominated the highlife scene in Africa in the early 50s. We, the up and coming artists then owe everything to his band, style, arrangement and harmony.”
