He worked with bands including Stargazers Band, Broadway Dance Band, Black Star Highlife Band (with Teddy Osei and Sol Amarfio who later joined Osibisa), Apagya Show Band and fellow musicians C.K. Mann, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and the legendary Pat Thomas. Twer Nyame (?Trust in God') was originally released in 1978 on Philips-West African-Records. Classic highlife sounds; up-tempo grooves, vocals, tons of percussion, guitar, horns and organ lines. Featuring the stand-out ?Atwer Abroba'. Twer Nyame 17.31, Peace on Earth 7.49, Atwerabroba 8.18
