“Those close to me know that I am very
emotional, so, I have a lot of songs such as one that I composed for my mother, Ama Esah, that I can’t perform on stage even if you kill me.
“Because if I sing it, I would be compelled to stop and leave the stage,” Lumba said in a recent interview shared via his YouTube page.
The music legend made the disclosure while speaking about the motivation behind one of his hit songs, “Theresa Abebrese.”
According to Lumba, the song which honours his first love, Nana Konadu alias Theresa Abebrese is one of the songs he is unable to perform on stage due to the emotions it evokes.
“Looking at how pretty, how empathetic and how smart she was and knowing that a woman of Theresa’s calibre is no longer in this world, I feel pained whenever I play the song. I’ve never been able to perform it on stage before, but I will do well to perform it one day in her honour,” he stated.
