Multiple award-winning Ghanaian gospel powerhouse, Obaapa Christy has narrated her first encounter with legendary Ghanaian musician Charles Kwadwo Fosu famed as Daddy Lumba.
Speaking in an interview on Atinka FM’s Drive Time show hosted by Roman Fada, Obaapa revealed how Daddy Lumba out of nowhere paid her a surprise visit at a beauty salon at ‘Sofoline’ — a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Narrating the incident, Obaapa Christy revealed she was at the beauty salon when she had a call that someone was after her only to realize that it was the prolific songwriter and singer.
Interestingly, Daddy Lumba who had heard about her paid this surprise visit to show her unmeasurable love and respect for her outstanding talent and creativity.
She also revealed that at one point, the popular musician threatened to beat her if she ever responded to conversations around her then “unsuccessful marriage”.
To date, she describes this as one of the happiest and hard-to-forget days in her entire life. With a grateful heart, she said this has been one of the most priceless pieces of advice she has ever gotten and pledged to always show him much respect.
According to her, since those moments, Daddy Lumba has been one of the strongest pillars in her life and career as a musician — he encourages and advises her on sensitive issues.
