"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," he clarified

The duo, who formed the music group Lumba Brothers in the late 1980s after meeting in Germany, later pursued solo careers, leading to speculation and assumptions about the cause of their split.

Addressing the breakup, Nana Acheampong emphasized that, contrary to public perception, there was never any ill-feeling between them.

"It may look as though we started the beef phenomenon, but my brother and I, with whom people say I had a beef, had nothing ill going on between us. We had no problem, not for a single day," he asserted.

Acheampong acknowledged that their separation divided fans, who had admired their partnership as young, talented performers. The fans' disappointment led to assumptions that money or women might have caused their parting ways.

According to the renowned highlife artist, the separation sparked a rivalry among fans akin to the one between football teams Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, vying for the same trophy. However, he stressed that there was no actual feud between himself and Daddy Lumba.
