Nana Acheampong explained that since then, they played several live band shows together in Germany for almost 10 years until Daddy Lumba relocated.

The veteran musician further stated that after Daddy Lumba relocated, he was having difficulties in coming for studio sessions due to the distance so they decided to go their separate ways.
