Legendary highlife musician, Daddy Lumba has disclosed that false rumours about him, especially death related, cause fear and panic in his family abroad.
According to him, his wife and kids are outside the country and they always panic when they hear such disturbing rumours.
He has therefore pleaded with Ghanaians to desist from peddling lies about his life.
Daddy Lumba, born Charles Kwadwo Fosu, speaking in an interview with ‘Ohemaa Woy?j?’ on the Work and Happiness show on Adom FM, recounted how he was reported dead several times on his sick bed five years ago.
Speaking in Twi, the multiple award winning musician said, even though he was sick for close to five years, he was still alive when some Ghanaians declared him dead.
He noted that even Jesus died once, but his ‘death’ has been announced several times.
Daddy Lumba recently collaborated on a ten-track gospel album titled “Hossana” with gospel artiste, Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong.
Asked whether he was going to do gospel full time, the “Nyame Nhyira Mma” hit singer was quick to say no.
He noted jovially that he was not going to do gospel music so Ghanaians will start calling him ‘Pastor Alewa,’ in apparent reference to fellow artiste Ofori Amponsah who claimed to have been born-again but recently released a love song entitled ‘Alewa’
He, however, proclaimed his commitment to worship and praise God through his entire life, saying God has been good to him and he will, therefore, worship God to show his appreciation.
Daddy Lumba disclosed that he will collaborate with Ampong for three more albums, to be released in the coming years.
