A document sighted on his Instagram page revealed that the artiste will enjoy free distribution via Spinnup for any new songs he releases in the next 12 months.

“Additionally, we will offer you 12 months of free distribution via Spinnup for any new songs you release in the next 12 months,” it said.

Lumi-DMR recently received an honorary award by the ECOWAS YOUTH COUNCIL as an ECOWAS Youth Ambassador for his philanthropic gesture in May 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown in Ghana. He sponsored and partnered with Joy Prime to donate relief items and food to the less privilege and vulnerable.

Speaking on Joy Prime’s Hot Picks show, Lumi-DMR said he owes his significant strides in his music career to Joy Prime, without who he would not have been noticed.

“I didn’t know the world was watching when I was doing my act of philanthropy. I am the youngest Ghanaian to be honored with such an award from ECOWAS. I owe it all to Joy prime… Without Joy Prime no one would have even known me.”

The artiste in another interview on Prime Morning on Joy Prime hinted that he plans another philanthropic gesture to put smiles on the faces of the less privilege in society.

Lumi-DMR is known for his songs, AGYEIWAA, CANABIS, BOBOBO and a lot more. His latest song titled I DEY BUY ALL features young legendary Afrobeat musician, Tic.
