Tunde King attended a local Methodist primary school and the Eko Boys High School. A schoolmate taught him to play guitar, and he became a leading member of a local group of "area boys" who hung out at a mechanic's shop on West Balogun Street. The group talked, drank beer and sang, accompanied by improvised instruments. The members of the band created an moderately-paced ensemble sound that backed up the guitar and vocals with simple harmonic progressions. In the 1930s Nigeria was a British colony.
Over time, Tunde and his group slowly transitioned from playing palm wine music that was common among guitarists in Lagos to producing songs in Yoruba and converting them into a story-like song in a verse-repeating and audience responsive format. His rise to fame began once his music was aired on Radio Lagos in 1932 and in 1933, King and his group would start receiving official, solicited invites from the rich and famous elite members of the Lagos community.
