Music career of Nana Fofie
Nana’s music is a never-before-heard combination of European and African tones. Her ascent to stardom began with the publication of her first official YouTube video, the Afro Mashup ‘Mad Over You,’ on March 9, 2017, which was created by Reuben Isaac. The video, which was created by K.I.D.D. Production, far exceeded everyone’s expectations. The Mashup video received 100.000 views on YouTube in its first week and over 1 million views in its first month.
Nana and her producers had hoped for 50,000 viewers, but 1 million was not only a pleasant surprise, but also a huge success. “My goal was to get 50,000 views on YouTube and use that to launch my music career as an artist,” she added, “but I’m overwhelmed by the love I’ve received from fans all over the world.”
Nana Fofie and her team followed up the success of the first mashup with the publication of a second Afro Mashup, ‘Leg Over,’ in May 2017 in response to popular demand. On the day of its release, ‘Leg Almost’ received 100,000 views on YouTube, bringing the total number of views to over 2.5 million. Several record labels, including Universal Music Group, Topnotch, and Eazi Corps, have expressed interest in working with Nana as a result of her accomplishments. [ ¹]
