Ghanaian highlife icon, Nana Acheampong, has denied the long-standing rumour of a feud between himself and fellow music icon Daddy Lumba.

Nana Acheampong went on to say that, in contrast to speculations about issues between himself and Daddy Lumba, he has never released a song aimed at Daddy Lumba, instead, his music is filled with reflections on experiences from his own life.

“In my opinion, those songs were not made about me. I don’t consider them as targeted at me and vice-versa. These were just songs to entertain our fans. I have no beef song. It may look as though we started the beef phenomenon, but me and my brother had nothing ill going on between us. We had no problem, not for a single day. What happened was that we made music together for a while and parted ways. People thought it was money or women,” he explained.

According to him, their breakup caused rivalry among their fans, who were allegedly fighting, under the impression that they were [musicians] were also fighting.

“When we broke into two different music brands, it also divided the fans causing rivalry similar to the one between football teams Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, struggling for one trophy. They were fighting but my brother and I had no beef between us,” he stressed.

The Lumba Brothers released their first album in 1989, before the split. The title of the album is Yɛɛyɛ Aka Akwantuo Mu.

Last year, the Duo performed together on stage, at the KABFAM Legends Night show.
