Multi-talented actress and songstress Nana Yaa Agyare has taken a giant step into the music circles as she launches her maiden reggae single titled: ‘INNER WOMAN’ ft. Mavluz (OD4) as produced by Osasbeat.
The multi-genre singer with special interest in Reggae, R&B and Jazz is also poised to take the stage with her dexterity in live performance. In an era where the music market in Ghana appears saturated, with different genres competing for the requisite attention, one would ask: why would an actress break into the music circles?
For those who don’t know the songstress, let’s give you a taste about her; she is a Ghanaian actress born in the late 70s. She earlier worked at Radio XYZ as a Programme Producer, Presenter of Celebrity XYZ and a reporter, and at JOY FM as a reporter, newscaster and Programme Producer.
She’s currently a broadcasting instructor and Deputy Director at the Rabodef Broadcasting Academy. She is an MC and a trained journalist with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, and a Master of Arts in Journalism from the Ghana Institute of Journalism.
Nana Yaa Agyare started her acting career in her teens and made her maiden appearance in a Nigerian Movie called ‘Ego-The Dark Witch’ in 2014, where she played the lead role. She has since featured in movies like ‘The Pressure’, ‘Indian Money’, ‘Last Card’, ‘The King With No Culture’, ‘Kukesi’, ‘SideChic Gang’ and ‘The Inner Woman’ which premieres on the 2nd of March, among others. She also composes sound tracks for films.
She’s hoping to push both her music career, which she calls her first passion, and her acting career which happens to be her second passion, to the top. She advocates that artistes should build on their stage craft and master the use of live equipment for live performances rather than the conventional “miming”. This, she says, will help carve a better niche for artistes on the global front.
“It’s time to enjoy a very different kind of music that has become very rare in Ghana music in recent times. Lots of artistes play for the dance and trends but Nana Yaa Agyare opted to go slow and calm us with this beautiful tune; I think it deserves listening and an applause for her bravery”, Mr. Destiny, an entertainment aficionado told Ytainment News.
