Highlife star Ofori Amponsah has shockingly revealed that Daddy Lumba has stolen his work during his rise to fame.
When the Ghanaian legend Lumba openly stole his work, the singer was disgusted.
When the album “Wo Ho Kyere” was published in 1999, Ofori stated that this sad event took place, according to a TV XYZ interview.
He worked tirelessly alongside Daddy Lumba to bring the concept to fruition, but the latter conveniently claimed ownership.
That the legend, better known as DL, was only meant to appear as a guest artiste is the source of the grief and anguish of this all.
At the age of 18, Ofori Amponsah was Daddy Lumba’s naive protege, excited to be working with such a legendary musician as that man.
Ofori is now claiming that the album ‘Wo Ho Kyere’ was his blood and sweat and was supposed to be in his name and not Daddy Lumba’s.
In an interview with TV XYZ, Ofori Amponsah elaborated on this claim.
The decision to give Lumba “Wo Ho Kyere,” an album that cost him six years of his life, was something he had no idea about.
When he returned to Ghana after working on the album’s artwork and other aspects in Germany, he realized the concept had completely shifted.
“It should have been the other way around,” he says.
This was unfortunate because the adjustments favored his mentor, Daddy Lumba, in an unethical way.
