Nana Kwame Ampadu (31 March 1945 – 28 September 2021) was a Ghanaian musician credited with numerous popular highlife tracks and he is known to have composed over 800 songs.

The composer, guitarist and singer who is a household name both in the country and abroad hails from Obo-Kwahu in the Eastern Region.

Ampadu’s “African Brothers Band” was formed in 1963. One of the founding members was Eddie Donkor. He came to prominence in 1967 when he released his song Ebi Te Yie (or “Some Are Well Seated”), a song that was seen as potentially critical of the then-governing National Liberation Council and disappeared from the airwaves, only returning after the end of military rule.


In 1973 he won a nationwide competition to be crowned the ‘Odwontofoohene‘, to wit (Singer-in-Chief).

Nana Kwame Ampadu, as he is formally known, was reported to have died suffering from an undisclosed illness. The unexpected demise of the Ghanaian King of musicians has put the entire country in a state of mourning.
