Welcome to the Highlifeturntable. The purpose of this blog is to provide a way for people to listen to rare highlife music from Ghana and Nigeria. I plan to post tracks from my private collection along with a little commentary on what I know about the artist and what I like about the LP.

Dr. Olololo and Mbaise Brothers Band

For the next selection on the highlife turntable, I have chosen the song Anyi Ayohuola  by Dr. Olololo and his Mbaise Brothers band, off a RAS release Inyeaka Chukwu.

I do not know much about the band. I believe they are from the Anambra state.  I have one other record which lists the band as Olololo and his brothers international band of Nigeria and  Dr. Olololo real name as Dominic Ntiwunka.

I really enjoyed the raucous vocals and the tight guitar playing on this song.  Check out the guitar playing at the 3.40 mark and the percussion work at the 5.30 mark. Very uptempo and dance able.  If anyone has any information on this band please let me know and I'll update the post.  Happy Holidays from the highlife cave.

  4. Lovely tune from Dr Olololo and the Mbaise brothers band. Talking of Dr Olololo, He was a unofficial member of Oriental brothers band till the last splinter that occurred between Sir warrior and Dansatch, when he joined Dansatch and the new oriental as a backup of vocalist, before forming his own band called MBAISE BROTHERS BAND in 1982-1983
