Highlife musician Kofi Nti has jumped in defence of Daddy Lumba over the death of Ghanaian musician, Anokye Supremo.
Lumba’s lookalike who was once called ‘Daddy Lumba Junior’ died on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, after undergoing a surgery to remove a brain tumor that was detected in the latter part of 2018 after he had complained of severe headache for days.
Before he left for the Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur in India, the tumor had affected his eyes.
The demise of the ‘Fa me twa’ composer did not only come as a shock to Ghanaians, but with wild controversies. Social media users had accused Daddy Lumba over the death of the young musician. Some backed their allegations with the fact that, the popular Highlife musician had sued Anokye not to ‘impersonate’ him.
But in an interview with Agyemang Prempeh, host of Power Entertainment on Power 97.9 FM, Kofi Nti said Ghanaians were rather peddling falsehood about the death of Anokye.
“Why would Lumba kill Anokye?” the Rakia hitmaker asked as he described the rumor mongers as people who can’t redeem themselves from preliterate times.
“What is wrong with us as a people…We are in a country where people over 100 years die and some people want to visit shrines to know what killed them.
“If Lumba could kill Anokye, he would have killed some of us because, when I started singing, Anokye was nowhere,” he added.
Defending Lumba, Nti observed that: “Lumba couldn’t have killed him because of the issues we all know. He just mimicked him and he sent him to court and that doesn’t mean Lumba has killed him. The man has nothing to do to him.”
Meanwhile, the mortal remains of the musician is expected in Ghana on Monday, February 11,2019, Anokye’s father told Agyemang Prempeh on Saturday.
