Daddy Lumba vs Kojo Antwi: Ghanaians divided over who is greater
Ghanaians on Friday took a break from the usual debate on politics to decide which of the nation’s most influential highlife musicians deserved praise.
They were given the difficult task of choosing between the two of Ghana’s great, gifted and brilliant musicians – Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi.
The conversation on the ‘who is who of highlife’ was started by the team on the award winning Citi Breakfast Show.
Both musicians, widely known for their reflective, danceable and memorable songs are often pitched against other.
Today the Citi Breakfast Show took the polls from the streets to the studio and triggered a vigorous national debate which spawned two online polls on social media.
At the time of this piece, Daddy Lumba had a slight lead on Facebook while Kojo Antwi was leading as a favorite on Twitter.
Considering the huge interest and raging arguments on social media, this debate is not ending anytime soon.

Choosing between Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi is no easy task at all. Mostly, choosing between these two will depend on my mood. #CitiCBS— GATOR (@citizengator) January 11, 2019
This is like comparing BMW and Mercedes Benz. Both powerful, classy, unique and expensive. But Daddy Lumba for language Kojo Antwi for musical arrangement. #CitiCBS— Marian (@attaboahene) January 11, 2019
