Legendary Ghanaian highife musician, Charles Kwadwo Fosu aka Daddy Lumba, says his doors are opened to impart his God-given talents to upcoming musicians.
Daddy Lumba told Kwame B on Aben Wo Ha on Kasapa FM that there’s no retirement age in music and will always give his best as far as he has the strength–and the inspiration to do so.
“The more you grow, the more you are motivated to do music. I am not going to retire, but will help young and coming artistes with my God-given talent in music.”
Charles Kwadwo Fosu who was rocked with numerous death hoax disclosed that; “his passion for Gospel music is greater than Hi life and that has compelled him to collaborate with the talented Gospel artiste-Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong.”
He explained that their new song ‘Hosanna’ was to thank God for his countless grace upon him. Moreover the new song will be launched to commemorate his birthday.
“I was trained as Gospel singer but Hi Life came as part of my career. The ‘Hosanna’ song was to thank God for what He has done for me in the past that is why we chose to celebrate it on my special day. Though I have never celebrated my birthday, this one will be splendid.”
‘Hosanna’ is set to be launched on Saturday, October 3 at the National Theatre.
