In March, Daddy Lumba gave one of the most fascinating interviews, which sparked several major articles.
One of the numerous revelations he made was concerning his hit song “Theresa,” which he wrote in memory of his late mother.
Daddy Lumba, a Ghanaian highlife star, has revealed that he is unable to play some of his songs live.
According to Lumba, he is unable to play songs to which he has personal links, such as Ama Esah, which he wrote to honor his late mother.
“Those close to me know that I am very emotional, so, I have a lot of songs such as one that I composed for my mother, Ama Esah, that I can’t perform on stage even if you kill me. Because if I sing it, I would be compelled to stop and leave the stage,” Lumba said in a recent interview shared via his YouTube page.
The music icon made the revelation while discussing the inspiration behind one of his great songs, ‘Theresa Abebrese.’
According to Lumba, one of the songs he is unwilling to sing on stage is one honoring his first love, Nana Konadu aka Theresa Abebrese, because of the feelings it provokes.
“Looking at how pretty, how empathetic and how smart she was and knowing that a woman of Theresa’s calibre is no longer in this world, I feel pained whenever I play the song. I’ve never been able to perform it on stage before, but I will do well to perform it one day in her honour,” he stated.
