Nii Tei Ashitey

Founder (1973)

 Wulomei was founded in 1973 by Nii Tei Ashitey with the encouragement of the dramatist and musician Saka Acquaye. Acquaye managed the band and wrote some of the music.

Ashitey had previously been a percussionist for the Tempos led by E.T. Mensah, Tubman Stars and Worker’s Brigade highlife bands, but decided to create a more “rootsy” sound to, as he once put it, “bring something out for the youth to progress and to forget foreign music and do their own thing”.
