The young Eric Agyeman had started his career playing highlife and Western pop in Kumasi-based guitar band, The Afro Boateng Mighnight Movers in 1963, first as a drummer and then as a guitarist.

By 1972 he had joined Kwame Gyasi as guitarist, singer and arranger for his band known as Dr. K. Gyasi and His Noble Kings. Rising quickly to become bandleader, Agyeman together with singer and drummer Thomas Frempong developed a vibrant new form of music, "Sikyi" higlife which was to revolutionalise higlife music and to influenece a string of younger talents Highlife is a musical genre that originated in Ghana in the 1900s and spread to Sierra Leone, Nigeria and other West African countries by 1920.

It is very popular in Liberia and all of English-speaking West Africa, although little has been produced in other countries due to economic challenges brought on by war and instability. Highlife is characterized by jazzy horns and multiple guitars which lead the band. Recently it has acquired an uptempo, synth-driven sound (see Daddy Lumba). Joromi is a sub-genre.
