Teal Trutone also boasted a six-man band in the name of Ashiko. exactly what inspired the name is not very clear except that it could have been influenced by the 1975 Hugh Masekela’s recording of oJ ekemonde’s composition Ashiko on his album The Boy’s Doin’ It. Ashiko is translated as “World of time” – no time to lose. the band ashiko was Alpheus Mofokeng (lead vocals), Thomas Tladi (guitar), Innocent Hala (keyboards), Diliza Maneli (keyboards), Bonakele Mbambisa (keyboards) and Skipper Shabalala (guitar). In 1980 they released their album Get Ready. It was followed by others like Gumba Fire (1986), Umaseven (1987) and Wachaggo Man (1988).
