I have been in the best of moods all day today as it was high-life legend Daddy Lumba’s birthday today!!
All my colleagues heard about this from me as they rolled their eyes every time I mentioned it. I sent videos to groups, had it on my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and my just started Snapchat (TOWIGhana), so it is only right that I share the great news with you guys too.
Daddy Lumba was born Charles Kwadwo Fosu in the Ashanti region of Ghana (my ends) 51 years ago today on the 29th September 1964. He came on the music scene in the early 80’s with Nana Acheampong when they were known and the duo ‘Lumba Brothers’. They unfortunately split years later after a successful music career together. They both went on to have great solo careers but I think we can all agree that Lumba’s career has been far more successful as he still goes on to produce hits and win awards.
Lumba’s last hit being Yentie Obiaa which was released just last year still has people jumping to the dance floor when they hear it and he also won Highlife Artist of the Year and Highlife Song of the Year at the 2015 Vodafone Music Awards. On Saturday 3rd October he launches his collaborated album with gospel musician Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong aka Great Ampong.
He has touched so many people and put so many smiles on peoples faces through his music so its only right we pay homage to him on his special day.
Here is the top 5 Daddy Lumba songs of all Time:
- Aben Wo Aha
- Asee Ho (Feat. Borax)
- Enshie Wo Remix (Feat Okyeame Kwame)
- Menya Mpo
- Yentie Obiaa
This was extremely tough for me to decide on just 5 as he has SO SO many great hits, but I had to be stringent. I stand by my selection and hope you enjoyed it.
What did you think? Did I get it wrong? What is your favourite DL song?
