Hilife veteran Daddy Lumba (DL) visited the flagbearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo at his office in Accra on Monday.
“Daddy Lumba and his son, Charles Kojo Fosu jnr, paid me a visit in my office a few minutes ago,” Mr Akufo-Addo said in a post on his Facebook page.
Mr Akufo-Addo recently told Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr 103.5fm that Daddy Lumba (DL) is “high” on his list of “favourite” musicians.
The three-time flagbearer said in that interview that DL’s recent hit song ‘Ye Nea Woho Beto Wo’, also called #YentieObiaa is one of his favourite songs composed by the celebrated entertainer.
‘Ye Nea Woho Beto Wo’ was adjudged Highlife Song of the Year at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ceremony. It also won Lumba Highlife Artiste of the Year given the attention it has received, becoming a street anthem within a short period of its release.
The president, John Dramani Mahama, was seen dancing to the song with Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace a couple of months ago.
He is also on record to have requested for the copyright to the track, hinting it might be used in 2016 as one of the NDC’s campaign songs.
But Nana Addo told Bola Ray he enjoys the song only for its aesthetic appeal and “not for the purposes for which other people use it. As for me, I listen to everyone.”
