Daddy Lumba for Adonko street jam
One of the nation’s highlife greats, Daddy Lumba, will be the star attraction tonight at this year’s Adonko Bitters street jam at the Heroes Park, Kumasi Sports Stadium.
Several other highlife and hiplife artistes will also be in attendance to entertain music lovers at the concert slated for 7.00p.m. till daybreak.
They include Kofi Nti, Kofi B, K.K Fosu and Nero X.
Well-known for his appealing stage presence, Lumba has promised to perform most of his popular tracks such as Ye Nia Woho Be To Wo ( Yentie Obiaa), Biribi Gyegye Wo, Menya Mpo, Obi Ate Meso Bo, Sika Asem, Odo Foforo, Ebi Se Eye Aduro, Aben Wo Ha, Poison and See Wo Se.
With 27 albums to his credit, Lumba’s songs have over the years yielded more number one and Top 10 hits than any other Ghanaian musician of our time.
In 1999, he won three awards including Best Album and the Most Popular Song of the Year at the maiden edition of the prestigious Ghana Music Awards.
Lumba has collaborated with several other top musicians such as A. B. Crentsil, Kwabena Sunkwa, Felix Owusu, Yaw Micah, Borax and Pat Thomas.
The free street jam is being organised by the management of Angel Group of Companies, producers of Adonko Bitters, to entertain the drink’s numerous customers in Kumasi and its environs.
According to the show’s organisers, it would be an opportunity for music fans in the Ashanti Region who have missed Lumba’s last few performances in the Garden City to catch him in another exciting live appearance.
Lumba has a large repertoire that can entertain fans for hours when he mounts the stage and he is expected to show once again tomorrow why he is one of the most thrilling artistes in Ghana today.
