Gospel star Obaapa Christy has revealed how iconic Highlife musician Daddy Lumba once ‘threatened’ to beat her up and the reason is not as serious as you might envisage.
The veteran singer who is gearing up for her 20th anniversary in the music industry appeared in the studios of Atinka FM on the programme Drive Time where she shed light on what triggered Daddy Lumba to issue the ‘threat.’
She 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.
Daddy Lumba probably heard about her location and decided to pay her a surprise visit to inform her how much he admires her prowess and dexterity as a musician.
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”.
Obaapa Christy said this is one of the most unforgettable moments of her life. She said to earn so much respect and admiration from a legend was a humbling experience and the icing on the cake for her was the advice she got from him.
In a nutshell, she mentioned that since that, 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.
