Wife of Gospel musician Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong, in an exclusive interview with Presspeep.com, has made a number of shocking revelations on her husband’s ongoing fight to get back an amount of GHC 340, 000, Ampong claims music legend Daddy Lumba has swindled him of.
The woman, who was seething with anger, actually got in touch with the site to react to an editorial we published on Tuesday, 29th Nov, 2016, asking Ampong to drag Lumba to court or hush – since his persistent media war against Lumba smacks of an intention to defame the ‘Aben wo ha’ hit maker.
“I respect your editorial and where you are coming from but where have we not gone to get our money from Lumba? We have contacted almost all the big men who are closer to Lumba but to no avail. We contacted Mahama to ask Lumba to pay us but in the end he only told us to let the issue pass. We contacted Nana – he too told us to let go.
“Big names like Despite, Kenpong, Prophet Badu Kobi, and a number of other noble men have contacted Lumba so we settle this issue but it yielded no result” she told Presspeep.com. She also revealed that at some point, Lumba refused picking calls from Kenpong – who gifted Lumba a car and Prophet Badu Kobi who delivered Lumba when he was very sick (near-death).
She continued to make more revelations of how she and Ampong have gone through trying times to cater for their 3 children – at a time they needed the money badly from Lumba.
“I had to credit Kalypo on credit from stores for my children to go to school. At a point, our 3 boys were sacked from school. I had to run to my village to stay there for some time! We have been through hell of a time. Ampong has always admired Lumba and never thought Lumba could do this to him.
Asked what action management of Ampong took or intends to take to get their money back, she disclosed that manager of Ampong, Bandex, wanted to take civil action against Lumba but lamed his intent due to advice from prophet Badu Kobi – who promised of getting the money from Lumba.
According to her, they will not keep quiet on this issue. “We won’t stop the noise! We will continue till Lumba comes out to speak on it” she said. She also made other revelations which we shall be publishing soon.
Background Of Story
The two artistes, (Daddy Lumba and Kwadwo Ampong) formed a group called Kojo Kojo to release hit single, “Hossana” in 2015 – which they eventually did. According to Bandex, manager of Great Ampong, the two musicians agreed to share the money they will get from the launch of the song.
He added that the management of Lumba took away the money they got from the launch of the song immediately after the event when Ampong was taking pictures with his fans without his knowledge. Ampong is out again with another album titled ‘Yehowa Kai Me’ which literary means God remember me.
