Remembering The Backing Vocalists Behind All Of Daddy Lumba’s Hits. We keep jamming to our favourite Daddy Lumba song asking a lot of questions about the sweet melodic voices backing him. sometimes we assume that’s Daddy himself because there’s no trace of these backing vocalists in the records thus making it impossible to know a ding about them even though they are there.
Ateaa Tina looks to be very much familiar among the DL fan base but what about the others? From all indications, we can all agree there are different backing vocalists and we don’t even know a ding about them but the issue is underway to be settled as we are here to take a look at 4 of the backing vocalists behind Daddy Lumba’s top hits.
Abigail Appenteng is a young and talented vocalist who is gradually carving her niche as one of the best contemporary Ghanaian gospel artistes. Abigail has always had a passion for performing and stealing the spotlight since childhood. She started singing and dancing at a young age and learnt how to do the Adowa dance when she joined a cultural group in primary school. She later joined the children’s choir at her church, Full Gospel Evangelistic Ministry where she gained the foundations that honed her voice as a singer.
She was a member of the African band, ENIJE (www.enije.com). She toured with the Gospel Pearls in Germany, France and Denmark. She was also a soloist in a group called LIESE and another group named Bukki and Back 2 the Roots, which performed at weddings, birthdays, opening ceremonies and other big events. In 2005 she did a collaborative project with Daddy Lumba. They worked on a gospel album, ‘Osoro Enkye Me Ne’ which was written, produced and marketed by Lumba, with vocals by Abigail.

Tina and Daddy Lumba together gave us one of the most memorable joint albums in the history of Ghana music. Their collaborative effort On The “Bubra” album will forever be unmatchable. Aside from that, Tina was the backing Vocalist behind almost all of Daddy Lumba’s songs as well as other prominent musicians.
