In the words of Roman Fada, the manager of Daddy Lumba, it is not true that the legendary Ghanaian musician shuns the company of up-and-coming artistes when they knock on his door for a feature.
On the contrary, he pointed out the numerous features bearing Daddy Lumba’s signature.
“Everyone should check the records. No musician has featured emerging artists or made stars more than Daddy Lumba. We can mention names. He’s featured in a lot of his colleagues as well.
“If you want to work with Onua FM, you need to go through the right procedure. You need to apply. You can sit idle and expect Onua FM to call you and offer you a job,” he said in a recent interview conducted on Onua FM.
On the same platform, the manager urged up-and-coming musicians who want to work with the icon to use the proper channels.
His comment comes days after KiDi expressed interest in working with the icon during an interview on Onua FM’s drive-time broadcast.
KiDi had fondly mentioned that he had saved a particular tune for the highlife legend that he thinks will go perfectly with him.
However, Roman Fada says anyone who publicly expresses a desire for a partnership but doesn’t take the necessary steps won’t get any deal from Lumba.
His speech was also an answer to a question by the host as to whether Dada Lumba has the capacity to assist up-and-coming and young acts.
