Alhaji Kwabena Frimpong aka K. Frimpong was a Ghanaian highlife singer. He is known for his hit song “Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu”, performed by K. Frimpong And His Cubano Fiestas.

Their album Obi Agye Me Dofo was released in Ghana on the Probisco record label, and was later reissued on the Makossa International label. The second band was the Cubano Fiestas, who recorded the album K. Frimpong and His Cubano Fiestas in 1977 for the Ofori Brothers label. The album contained the track “Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu” for which Frimpong is best known. He recorded at least two other albums with the Cubano Fiestas: Me Da A Onnda (1980), and K Frimpong, both released in Ghana on the Polydor label.
