November 5, 2011 will forever remain a memorable night in the life of Daddy Lumba as a musician.
On this night, Ghanaians celebrated the high life musician.
The event took place at the Accra International Conference Center.
Charles Kojo Fosu aka Daddy Lumba since the 1980s has journeyed through his music life with 27 albums to his credit. He has been consistent with the release of multiple-hit albums and has established himself as one of Ghana's most popular singers of high life music.
The president of MUSIGA, Obour presented him with a citation and conferred on him the prodigy of contemporary high life music. He was also honored with a 24 carat gold medal worth $25,000.
As part of celebrating Daddy Lumba, some selected artistes performed some of his songs.
Rana took the stage and brought back the days of 'Aben Wo Ha' and 'Poison'. The crowd cheered and sang along as they danced and moved with every rhythm and beat of the songs.
Gospel musician, Phillipa Baafistarted with her 'Sika Mpimpim" and then excited the audience with Lumba's "Min Pae Bo". Felix Owusu performed 'Miya Aka Akwain Tuom' also by Lumba. No Tribe's Nacy performed 'M3 Sum Jesus' and his his song 'Nyame Bo Sh3'.
Kofi B then followed up with "'Kumi Preku' and 'Wo Ho Kyere'.
Daddy Lumba always had kids at heart. Which is why he composed "Children Of The future" which was nicely performed by a kids group.
Kofi Nti was able to get the two ex presidents Jerry Rawlings and John Kufour on the dance floor with his Lumba songs.
Mzbel took the audience through Lumba's 'Misu Mor L3' and 'Asie Hor' beautifully.
Although he's been missing in action for a while now, K. K. Fosu craftily performed 'Odo Mbra Fie', 'Dangerous' and 'Ankwa Anuma' all by Lumba.
Street King Kwaw Kesse tweeted "No rehearsals. How do I perform?" before he come on stage. He surprisingly showed up on stage with a vocalist who helped him do Lumba's 'Theresa' song. But he saved his head and charged the audience when he asked the two former presidents to shake hands.
Praye Honeho and Praye Tetia performed 'S3 Wo Sii' by Lumba and tried to mimic his dance moves. Castro did his best with the songs he chose of DL.
Lumba finally took the stage and for about 40 minutes and treated the audience to what has made him the legend he is now - his music! He performed "111666", "Bibii Gyegye Wo" and many more.
MCs were Kwame Sefa Kayi and Akumaa Mama Zimbi.
It was a night of joy, laughter, good music and dancing. Charles Kojo Fosu proved beyond every reasonable doubt that he deserved to be celebrated and honoured.
