In the early 1980s, he debuted on the highlife scene with his massive hit "Yeeye Aka Akwantuo Mu" with Nana Acheampong (known together as 'Lumba Brothers'). This song depicted the number of Ghanaian immigrants that originally leave the country to seek better fortunes abroad but make those temporary homes permanent due to financial, emotional, or other unforeseen hardships.

Lumba’s wife, Akosua Serwa, produced the album.

He has been consistent with the release of multiple-hit albums since then and has established himself as one of Ghana's most popular singers of his genre, Highlife.

He introduced a future love song master, Ofori Amponsah, through his blockbuster hit album Wo Ho Kyere (1999).Daddy Lumba pairing in 1999 with the rising star, produced five hits and shot Ofori Amponsah into the limelight. Altogether he has sprung the careers of 13 different Ghanaian musicians.

He owns his own studio where he does all his work and also owns machines that do mastering, cassette duplication, loading, printing and shrink wrapping exclusively for his works. His music has evolved over the years to reflect the changes in taste and demands for music; he can currently be described as a contemporary highlife artist.
