Daddy Lumba, has filed a lawsuit at the Accra High Court claiming that Kwame Anokye (popularly known as Daddy Lumba Junior), who has over the years pretended to be his son for material gains, benefits and publicity to court.
According to the music legend, Mr Anokye pretends to be the son and even impersonates him to get gifts and benefits.
The writ which was published on www.entertainmentgh.com alleges that Anokye has a history of impersonating him since his appearance on a TV Africa-produced reality show, “Just Like You”, where talented Ghanaian youth were invited to present particular musicians and artists and to demonstrate to viewers the same mode and manner such musicians behave and act when on stage.
Interestingly, the impersonation didn’t end there as Kwame Anokye has been seen at concerts performing as the artiste with his looks and mannerism.
The plaintiff says, since the name Daddy Lumba is exclusively associated to him within the music industry and that no one goes by that name, the defendant’s imitation and misrepresentation has affected his reputation, business and goodwill and the brand as a whole.
