F. Kenya - Dadi Kyi

F. Kenya is (or was) Francis Kenya, a Ghanaian goldsmith who is often considered one of the country's finest highlife guitarists. It was not just this that decorates his legacy, though: he was a huge success across the border in Côte d’Ivoire, in part due to his singing in his native Nzema language. The Nzema people are found on both sides of the border, so this success makes a lot of sense. The song is driven by organs and Kenya's vocals, although his neat guitar licks are what really give it life!
