Legendary Ghanaian Highlife artiste, Nana Acheampong, has dispelled the long-held perception that he and Daddy Lumba, who made up the defunct Lumba Brothers, had a conflict before their separation.
At the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) Grand Arena on Sunday, January 1, 2023, he set the record straight at the second annual Kabfam Legends Night.
For Nana Acheampong, the split between the Lumba Brothers was amicable and mutual, and not the result of an unresolved conflict.
“Lumba is a close buddy of mine, so I don’t see why people assume he and his brother have problems. We both have over 30 albums out, so name another musician who is more popular in Ghana than either of us.”
After Sunday night’s thrilling performance, Nana Acheampong said, “We have been able to entertain our people all these years and that is what makes us special.”
Later on, Daddy Lumba joined Nana Acheampong on stage to perform the smash tune ‘Yee Ye Akwantuom.’
The ‘Yentie Obiaa’ hitmaker thanked his longtime buddy and business partner onstage for their countless contributions to his achievement.
“While in Germany, I was performing Gospel music until I met Nana Acheampong, who turned me into a Highlife musician. I owe him a lot for what he’s done for me in the music industry,” he remarked.
After hearing their favorite highlife songs performed repeatedly, the audience appeared ecstatic and satisfied.
