“From the min[ute] I met this man, his humble approach told me he was focused, then when he played his music in the battle, he blew the whole room away! Definitely Soul Nana is the future of production. – Sha Money XL (Money Management Group/Sr Vp of Urban Def Jam)

Born into a legacy of music it was destiny for Soul Nana to pursue a career writing, producing, and performing. The son of the internationally known Ghanaian drummer Rim Kwaku Obeng, Soul Nana was nurtured at a young age by musical greats like Fela Kuti, Osibisa, and Lumumba.

Not long after immigrating with his parents to the United States, Soul Nana was immersed in the genres of Funk, Soul, Jazz, and eventually Hip Hop. Building upon a solid musical foundation and blessed with his mother’s work ethic, Soul Nana was signed to Coolio and managed by Paul Stewart in 1994. During this time Soul Nana worked with Montell Jordan, Xzibit, Jimmy Cliff, the late Oji Pierce and was offered a recording contract by Steve Riftkind (then with Loud Records).

In 1997 Soul Nana joined forces with his brother, Latidoe to form Soulatidoe and went on to become one of the early pioneers of the Hiplife genre in Ghana. The release of their single and video “Kawanotomu” instantly catapulted them to success as they addressed common myths about traveling abroad.

In 2000 Soul Nana made his transition to music production and by 2004 his first placement “Lots of Girls” featuring Spragga Benz became the official first single for Slip N Slide artist Don Yute. After winning the Sha Money XL Beat Battle Championship in Arizona, Soul Nana went on to work with Rayven Simone, Jodeci, The Cheetah Girls, Keith Robinson, Anjulie, Nikki Grier, Busta Rhymes, and more. Since then Soul Nana has co-written and produced “Whine Fi Me” for Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Jupiter, “Retaliate” on Maino’s “Art of War , “Downtown” for Nikki Grier and Busta Rhymes and “Divine Music” on Smoke DZA’s “Substance Abuse 1.5.”
Soul Nana returned to the microphone on his debut solo album “Planet Afriika” in 2015, blending Hip Hop with rich african rhythms. In 2018, Soul Nana released “African Girl” a single professing his admiration for women from his continent.

Currently, Soul Nana is releasing a new song and video for “Chevy” an ode to culture of classic cars. When the allure of a 1955 Convertible Chevy Bel Air gets increasingly stronger, Soul Nana’s reality is spun into a hallucination of the Chevy personified.

Soul Nana’s work ethic and dedication to his craft never stops “ I can’t wait for you guys to hear this Afrobeats project I’m working on” – Soul Nana

The Soul Nana sound pulls from the cadre of his past experiences fusing Pop, Hip Hop, R&B/Soul, Rock, Dance, and Reggae with traditional African vibrations.

Published

on

A young Ghanaian man narrated a sad incident that happened in his life last year, when he was deported from Canada, just right after he arrived at the airport.

In a video cited on the RIDE AND CHAT YouTube channel, he shared how he had managed to save up to 60,000 Ghana Cedi before the idea of travelling and working outside the country started. He spoke to a group of people he believed were into travel documentation. The trip was organized and then he left Ghana, but things went sour for him upon arrival at the Canada airport, he called the person who was supposed to come to pick him up. To his surprise, the person didn’t pick up his calls.

He continued by saying, he became stranded and didn’t know what to do since that was his first time travelling out of Ghana. While he was at the airport looking stranded, the security team worked with him and interrogated him. The security team even proceeded to help him reach the person who was supposed to pick him up, but he didn’t pick up.

The only option was for him to be deported, but ever since he arrived in Ghana, things haven’t been easy for him. It took prayers and the timely intervention of his pastor that saved him from committing suicide after he had mixed batteries to drink.
