Speaking to flexgh.com, the ‘Maranatha’ hit singer Great Ampong, said he has loved Lumba from childhood and he counted it a great joy when the hip-life musician called on him to work together as a group.
“Daddy Lumba is one musician I have loved and admired from my childhood. He is someone I wanted to meet even just for a day. Even in school, we formed a group called Nana Acheampong and Lumba and I was the leader of the Lumba group,” he recounted.
“I made sure I learnt all his songs, and there is none of his songs I can’t sing. I have waited patiently to meet him in person so when I had the call from him, I was so excited and the day I met him was an honor for me. He told me God has placed something on his heart so he would get back to me at the right time, these were his words and we lost contact for two years and when he got back we started working on these gospel tunes,” he added.
Great Ampong also hinted that, he has successfully formed a group called ‘Kwadwo Kwadwo’ with Daddy Lumba and that they have worked together to produce four solid gospel albums already which was produced by sound engineer ‘RORO.’ Their first album ‘Hosanna’will be released on Friday 4th September, 2015.
This doesn’t mean that Daddy Lumba will no longer be doing his usual high life. Both of them will keep on doing their individual music as well.
“I don’t have intentions of also going to do high life. People know me for doing gospel and I will continue doing gospel,” he said.
