Ghanaian highlife legend, Charles Kwadwo Fosu, popularly known as Daddy Lumba has mourned the former President, Jerry John Rawlings.
He joins thousands of Ghanaians and high profile personalities to pay tribute to the former President of the 4th Republic as he commiserates with the bereaved.
Being one of the few people who had an enviable relationship with Rawlings, Daddy Lumba wrote;
Read his tribute below;
I am shocked and saddened by the death of Former President Jerry John Rawlings.
I had a great relationship with Mr. Rawlings and his family.
Throughout my 31-year career in music, the former president showed me utmost respect and was always supportive whenever I counted on him.
As the first president of the fourth republic, and being the Head of State of Ghana for 19 years, the loss of Mr. Rawlings will leave a huge vacuum in our politics. He shall be sorely missed.
My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings and his four children in this difficult time.
May his soul rest in peace.
Charles K. Fosuh ( Daddy Lumba)
