Bio:
Nana King is without a doubt one of the biggest names in the Ghanaian Hip life scene. Spotting a moniker that literally means ‘King King’; he is definitely a colossus whether as a singer, rapper, composer or producer, or even as a judge on Ghana’s hit talent show, ‘Stars of the Future’. While Reggie Rockstone can safely claim to be the originator of Hip life, Nana has certainly done his bit to sustain the genre over the years. His Ashanti International record label has launched the careers of many of Ghana’s most prolific young talents including the MOBO award winner Samini, VIP, Akyeame and many others. Born and raised in Hollywood Ca. to Ghanaian parents, Nana King began performing in church at the age of seven and would soon form his first musical group while still in grade school. The musical landscape of Hollywood and surrounding Los Angeles had a great influence on Nana's early music. As a youth and emerging entertainer Nana King explored and blended music from many artistically different genres into his early work from Punk Rock and Heavy Metal, Rap and R&B to Contemporary Christian and Gospel. Nana found early success in Los Angeles performing with Tupac Shakur and was signed to an exclusive overseas distribution deal. When Nana's father passed away Nana King went back to his African homeland of Ghana. It is here in Ghana that Nana King soon rose to national attention performing for tens of thousands while sharing stage with superstar artists Jay-Z and Akon. Nana was successfully selling and producing albums in the Hip-Life genre in Ghana, a blend of African and American Western Style Hip Hop; his multi-talented nature earned him his place on the voting Academy for MTV Europe Music Videos Awards in Copenhagen in 2006. Even though Nana enjoyed the fame and privilege he received in Ghana and throughout West Africa he knew that true success could only come from a global audience and he was soon "Called" to return to the U.S.A. back to Hollywood to begin the work that so spoke out to him. New music and a passion re-ignited Nana and has since found himself living a dynamic and spiritual life. Nana King now produces albums in a unique Urban Contemporary Gospel style meant to reach out especially to the youth of our Nation's urban centers and streets. Nana's hope is that his music will inspire and uplift those in need of change in their life, show a positive example to our troubled youth and of course always help to put a smile on a face and good beat in their heart. Nana worships and ministers every sunday at Christ Citadel International Church, Los Angeles and Dr. Vincent Akosah is his pastor. Nana wants everyone to enjoy their days and make the best of all that God has given.
