Around August 2016 GhanaCelebrities.com reported how Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong aka Great Ampong accused Daddy Lumba of being a cheat who made away with about GHC340,000 proceeds from their collaborated album launch. Great Ampong reiterated to Delay that it’s been over a year and he has still not gotten a dime from Daddy Lumba and there’s no way he will meet him without taking his money.
According to Great Ampong, who will turn 40 years this April, even Jesus caned people in the temple of God and that justifies why it doesn’t bother him as a Gospel Artiste who will cause a brutal scene the day he’ll meet Lumba in person anywhere. Particularly not when he toiled to write the song(s) in questions and still not getting GhC1, he lamented.
Great Ampong explained to Delay that he is very much aware Lumba cleared all the cheques from the album proceeds as Banks called to inform him of all those transactions.
According to Great Ampong, there was no formal agreements signed because he trusted Lumba as a brother and all they had was a verbal agreement of a 60 and 40% sharing of what the album will make. He said he opted for 40% because he respected Lumba as senior artiste though Lumba suggested 50/50 sharing.
Great Ampong recounted how Lumba postponed any meeting they seek to have about the proceeds until he gave up on calling him. However, he has not entirely given up and he will by hell or fire hold Lumba by the neck to vomit his money for him when and wherever they meet.
