Highlife band band formerly known as ‘El Dorados’, later to change their name to ‘Medican Lantcis’ before settling on ‘Sweet Talks’. Started under the joint leadership of Smart Nkansah and A.B. Crentsil as resident band at The Talk Of The Town Hotel in Tema near Accra. It is here they established a name for themselves as one of the most exciting young bands in the country.

Due to the popularity and commercial success of their first three albums – Adam & Eve, Kusum Beat and Spiritual Ghana – the band began touring on a regular basis and made it as far as Los Angeles (1978) where they recorded what was to be their biggest selling record; Party Time In Hollywood.

Smart Nkansah left the band to form the Black Hustlers in 1976, with Eric Agyemang on guitar, vocalist A.B. Crentsil, J.Y. Thorty on drums and Prince Nana Afful on keyboards. Plus horns and percussionists the band was renamed Super Sweet Talks. By 1980, faced with uncertain economic climate in Africa and a declining record industry, they split-up to pursue separate careers.

A.B. Crentsil reformed the band as the Super Sweet Talks International for earthy albums Mewo Road, Adjoa, Moses and Tantie Alaba.

Agyemang was successful, forming his Kokoroko Band for albums Wonko Menko, Highlife Safari and Kona Kohwe, the last with Crentsil and Thomas Frempong (drummer, vocalist who also did highlife hit Aye Yi '85).

Agyeman also sessioned with Crentsil, Atakora Manu, Nana Tuffuor; featured prominently with Crentsil and Frempong on Pete Pete '83 by Highlife Stars One, joining with members of Osibisa to make Ghana's first supergroup.
