Daddy Lumba Launches Gospel Album On Saturday

Multiple award-winning Ghanaian highlife music artiste, Charles Kwadwo Fosu, known in the showbiz industry as Daddy Lumba, will launch his much-awaited gospel album titled ‘Hosanna’ on Saturday, November 28 at the Glorious Waves International Church in Accra.

The album launch is expected to attract a number of personalities including the NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who is a special guest for the occasion.

Some of the songs on the album which he collaborated with Great Ampong include ‘Awurade Ka Meho’, ‘Father’s Son’, ‘Wotumi Ye Kese’, among others.

Daddy Lumba announced his presence on the Ghanaian music scene in the early 1980s, with an album titled ‘Yeeye Aka Akwantuo Mu’ which he collaborated with Nana Acheampong.

After the release of ‘Yeeye Aka Akwantuo Mu’, Daddy Lumba has been consistent with the release of multiple hit albums.

In 1999, he won three awards, including Best Album of The Year and the Most Popular Song of The Year at the Ghana Music Awards.

His solo career has not been short of controversy; one moment he would release a gospel album and the next he would shock people with his provocative lyrics and music videos.

His music has evolved over the years to reflect the changes in taste and demands for music; he can currently be described as a contemporary highlife artiste.

Lumba has won several Ghana music awards and other excellence awards and continue to appeal to the young and old.

In 2014, he released his ‘Awoso’ album that included the hit ‘Nea Woho Beto Wo’ that won him worldwide praise.
