He doesn’t only look like Daddy Lumba, he sings like him and also bears his name. People often mistake him for the ‘original’ Lumba for which reason he was dragged to court for impersonation by Daddy Lumba himself.
Lumba filed the lawsuit in January at the Accra High Court alleging that Kwame Anokye also known as DL Junior, had claimed to be his son and even impersonated him to get gifts from people.
He further alleged that Anokye had a history of impersonating him since his appearance on a TV Africa-produced reality show, ‘Just Like You’ which was produced in 2010.
Anokye has since changed his name to avoid further wahala with the music legend. He made this known in an interview with citinewsroom.com.
I have now chosen Kwame Supremo. I think it also portrays my brand and since I don’t want to have issues with Daddy, I have decided to drop DL Junior for this,
