Daddy Lumba’s lookalike, Emmanuel Kwame Anokye, alias Anokye Supremo, has died in India.
Anokye Supremo was in India for a surgery to remove a tumour from his brain which had left him partially blind.
A friend who accompanied him to India confirmed his death to Kofi TV.
The artiste, formerly known as Daddy Lumba Jnr, had been in coma for some weeks since the operation at the Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur in India.
It took Anokye Supremo a while to raise money through donations for the surgery in India.
Anokye Supremo had been battling with the brain tumour which had left him partially blind since October 2018.

“I went to the hospital and was told I had a tumor in my head which has caused an enlargement in my left eye. I can’t see with my left eye. It is gradually bulging out of the eye socket. I am really suffering. For about 3 weeks now, I have been indoors,” he said at the time.
Anokye Supremo who was called Daddy Lumba Junior for his similar looks and style, changed his name following a suit filed by Daddy Lumba against him for impersonation.
He further alleged that Anokye had a history of impersonating him since his appearance on a TV Africa-produced reality show, ‘Just Like You’ which was produced in 2010.
According to the young artiste who has always taken inspiration from Daddy Lumba, he decided to change his name to save him the wrath of his ‘godfather.’
