This is another authentic ABA based group. The Friimen Music Company was in Lagos recording in Decca Studios at Abuje-Oja in Akoka-Lagos. A group of musicians heard that Aba musicians were in the studio. They trooped in and saw us. At that point, they told us that they were intending to return to Aba to form a band. They also saw that The Friimen had a keyboardist, but that I was an keyboards attache to Beni Tudumey. They spoke to me to join them to form the band upon their return to Aba in the following couple of months. I was hesitant. They approached Beni Tudumey to speak to me. Beni did. Though I did not agree to form the band with them. They truly return to Aba in the new year, came to our rehearsal ground behind Ngwa Road near Ibere Street. Beni encouraged me to go and form the band. The first time that I went to the meeting, Beni went with me. The initial rehearsals we did as a band, Beni made sure to be present so as to encourage me. Beni believed so much in me. Those episodes saw the beginning of Sweet Unit with Wahehe, Joel, Reginald, George Black, Johnson... And the beat goes on!
