It is impossible to compare Daddy Lumba, Kojo Antwi – Okyeame Kwame
Hiplife artiste Okyeame Kwame has said it is impossible to compare music legends Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi.
Speaking in an interview the Rap Doctor stated the two legends have different styles of delivery which has pushed them in the music industry for decades.
“Comparing Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi is like comparing oranges and mangoes, we cannot find out who is greater, they are both extremely great,” he explained.
Okyeame Kwame added, “we did a US tour with Kojo Antwi about 10 years ago and 20 years ago we did a US tour with Daddy Lumba. Both of them can stand on the stage and perform well for 4 hours, for me they are the same.”
Daddy Lumba is a multiple award-winning artiste known for his creative highlife style of music which has helped him produce scores of hits.
Kojo Antwi, another award-winning artist, has been nicknamed “Mr. Music Man” for his diverse style of music from RnB to soul music, reggae and lover’s rock. His music has been sampled by some young Ghanaian hip-hop and hiplife artists due to its diverse tunes.
Okyeame Kwame stated he believes art cannot be measured and the duo (Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi) have been able to sustain careers for 30 years, releasing hits after hits.
“Their music is different. Kojo Antwi plays a bit of Reggae and Daddy Lumba plays highlife,” he added.
He also mentioned that the two artists have different styles of writing and voice textures which makes their music different and good in their own right.
“Kojo Antwi uses metaphors, similes and other literary devices in his music and Daddy Lumba uses culture, history, and proverbs in his,” he said.
The award winner added, “I’m not saying it because of politics or I don’t want to be in trouble but you can’t compare Kojo Antwi and Daddy Lumba because they’re different.”
