There’s a long story behing this song: who created it, who made it famous…

What’s for sure is King Sunny Ade is not the original composer, but it featured on his Grammy-nominated 1998 album titled Odu.

The song “Easy Motion Tourist” belongs to a sub-genre of Highlife called Palmwine Highlife – a freestyle territory where lyrics are often unrelated and disjointed.
