The parents of Daddy Lumba were teachers. His father, Owoahene Kwadwo Fosu died when Daddy Lumba was only a child.

His mother, Comfort Gyamfi, popularly known as Ama Saah raised him as a single parent. She died in 2001 in Kumasi. Her death was a big blow to Lumba as she was literally everything to him.

While in Germany, he met Ernest Nana Acheampong, who introduced him to a group he had already formed with a white man called Talking Dreams.

Lumba was still a gospel singer at this time. It was Nana Acheampong who introduced him to highlife music. The duo formed a different group, Lumba Brothers and released a lot of popular songs until they went their separate ways some years later.

Interestingly, the Lumba Brothers intended to release an album in 1986 but it was delayed for three years due to financial constraints.

The album was finally released in 1989 after Lumba’s wife, Akosua Serwaa produced the album dubbed ‘Yɛɛyɛ Aka Akwantuo Mu’.

Lumba and Controversy

It appears Daddy Lumba himself enjoys media attention. His music career has not been without controversy.

Lumba is unpredictable. You will find him at one moment releasing a gospel album and next, he would shock people with his provocative lyrics and music videos.

He has also faced accusations of skin bleaching but has denied ever bleaching his skin.

He has been hit with death rumours many times. Watch documentary about Daddy Lumba below.
