Up-and-coming highlife musician Kwame Anokye, popularly known as Daddy Lumba Junior, has changed his showbiz name following a recent law suit filed against him by legendary musician, Daddy Lumba for impersonation.
According to the young artiste, he decided to change his name to save him the wrath of his ‘godfather’, Dady Lumba.
“I have now chosen Kwame Supremo. I think it also portrays my brand and since I don’t want to have issues with Daddy, I have decided to drop DL Junior for this,” the musician told Citinewsroom.com in an exclusive interview.
The Kumasi-based musician in a bid to make peace with Dady Lumba has changed his Facebook name to ‘Kwame Supremo,’ indicating that he has finally dropped DL (Daddy Lumba) Junior.
It could be recalled that, Daddy Lumba on January 17, 2018 filed a lawsuit at the Accra High Court alleging that Kwame Anokye also known as DL Junior, had claimed to be his son and even impersonated him to get gifts from the public.
Lumba further alleged that Anokye had a history of impersonating him since his appearance on a TV Africa-produced reality show, ‘Just Like You’ which was produced in 2010.
Reports say after the reality show, Kwame Anokye (DL Jnr.) who has similar looks as Daddy Lumba has been plying his trade as a musician.
The plaintiff stated that since the name Daddy Lumba was 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.
However, the case is still pending in court even though DL Junior (now Anokye Supremo) had sent a delegation of music stakeholders to plead with Daddy Lumba to withdraw the case from court.
