Kweku Darlington says that just as Ghanaians did not appreciate Daddy Lumba’s talent when the highlife legend started, they are sleeping on his songwriting skills too.
Ghanaian musician Emmanuel Kweku Owusu Darlington, known as Kweku Darlington, made his breakthrough entrance with the hit song, ‘Sika Aba Fie.’ As one of the proponents of Ghana Drill music, Asakaa, Kweku Darlington’s first remix features stars like Fameye, Kuami Eugene, Yaw Tog and Kweku Flick.
Speaking on Onua FM’s Adwuma-Adwuma, Kweku Darlington has again iterated that Ghanaians are not appreciating his talent enough. He used Daddy Lumba as an example, saying that the highlife legend suffered the same dismissal during his early days.
“At the time Daddy Lumba started, we didn’t see him as a legend. It is now that we are seeing and appreciating his talent.”
Over the years, Kweku Darlington has furnished Ghanaians with authentic sounds, including Rap, Hiplife, Highlife and Drill music. His ability to produce original, timeless sounds featuring classics like ‘Sika Kankan’, ‘Baabi Awu’ and ‘Onipa’, earned him an endorsement from Okyeame Kwame, Ghana’s rap doctor.
Concluding his assertion, Kweku Darlington said, ‘As for me, I’m saying it here. Whether you like it or not, Ghanaians and the world are witnessing one of the best songwriters ever in Ghana.”
Kweku Darlington has a new song, ‘Osama’, out on all digital streaming platforms. Take a listen and let us know if he is indeed the best songwriter in Ghana.
