For the latter part of 2015, Ghanaian music newcomer, Ada Ratty made some waves with his iconic hiplife refix to a classic highlife hit by Akosua Agyepong. Ada Ratty who is signed on 4Real Entertainment gave an excellent twist to the popular oldie, “Saara” originally performed by Akosua Agyapong. ‘Saara’, produced by Appietus, came out with a contemporary groove that leaves listeners reminiscent of the good old days of highlife, yet in tune with modern sounds.
So who is Ada Ratty? He is a creative and dynamic musician who believes in portraying Africa in his music and spreading it across borders. He hopes to inspire the young generation with his music aside entertaining the many music lovers in Ghana. Born on the 5th of May 1989 as Isaac Tawiah, Ada Ratty is an up and coming hiplife artiste who hails from Old Ningo and Adafoah in the Greater Accra Region. He attended St. Paul’s Junior High but due to circumstances he dropped out of school at class four. His parents worked really hard and also encouraged him to go back to school but since music was his passion, he kept disturbing the class with rapping and drumming on tables in the classroom which led to his eventual expulsion.
Not one to give up on his plans and hopes of becoming a successful person in future, young Tawiah ended up as a Trotro driver after working as a ‘driver’s mate’ for several years – so he could save some money to record his music.
Ada Ratty loves listing to music and writing his own songs. He started doing music in the year 2005 but started professional music in 2010. His first single was ‘Zangbayo’ featuring Adane Best in 2012. He produced it by himself but didn’t have enough money to support it, and so the music did not do too good.
Still struggling to breakthrough in the music industry, Ada Ratty was supported by 4Real Entertainment’s US-based CEO, Joyce Azudey, which led to the production of his new song ‘Saara’ featuring the evergreen Ghanaian legend Akosua Agyapong. ‘Saara’ is currently on radio and the music video is gaining airplay on some television stations in Accra.
Ada Ratty sees himself to becoming a top artist in the future, a musician who would be remembered in history as an icon whose music made a positive impact on the ordinary Ghanaian and every other listener.

Episode 33 on StudentOfLife Podcast is all about ‘Manifestation’
Understanding the true laws and principles of it, realising that it is not simply about visualising and saying affirmations, write stuff down and it simply appears with time! It’s deeper than that. Understand the law of energy(chakras), law of vibration and governing your surrounds is key. Akosua Peprah is not telling you what you want to hear, but what you NEED to hear and the hidden truths of manifestation. (more…)
Nirvana Nokwe’s New EP Nirvous Love Is a Sensual Exploration of Self
Multifaced musical force Nirvana Nokwe has released her much awaited EP Nirvous Love, a soulful 6-track project stamping the budding artist’s credentials as an auteur of immersive and affecting music.
Stream/Download Nirvous Love here: https://paradise.fanlink.to/
Featured on the cover of Apple Music’s new releases Nirvous Love is an EP that brings one’s soul on a voyage of discovery: a story of love and awakening. Being self-aware due of the replicated dynamics of destruction, betrayal and hurt created in childhood, Nirvana explores the vindictive streak to attaining the love we all deserve.
With singles such as “2 Woke 4 Love” and “Waiting” laying the foundation, Nirvana delivers a cohesive and slyly eclectic body of work, rooted in retro, indie rock, Zulu drums, gqom and amapiano sounds, along with her ear-tingling vocal melodies and themes that dig into varying facets of the human condition.
“This project is a language in how we define and predict love. I hope everyone can find solace and healing and be relieved from the shackles of control and being controlling. This project is the blueprint of a genre I’m pioneering called Cosmic. Definitely something many may call sonic cinema, explains Nirvana.
Nirvana’s storytelling is intimate, truthful and, quite literally, out of this world with her ethereal sounds and deep passions for astrology. Her personal brand encapsulates the modern-day intellectualised dreamer, reflecting on the complexities of life and her place in the world.
While she is Johannesburg born, she identifies more with her years in KwaMashu and Lamtonville, Durban. Her family is rooted in the arts, making it possible for Nirvana to have participated in the entertainment industry at 4-years-old as a professional. By the age of 10, Nirvana understood what she was doing in entertainment and concluded that she wanted to continue pursuing a career in the arts.
“Nirvana’s latest release shows the diversity, future thinking and artistic integrity she has developed over her career. With massive support from stores such as Apple Music, it’s clear that she has a lot to offer and we’re excited to hear what’s yet to come,” expresses Mike Kelly Label Manager at Paradise.
A creative, a performer, trained singer, actress, producer, fashion model and filmmaker. These are some of the titles that can be attributed to Nirvana Nokwe. The 26-year-old hailing from Jozi is one independent to watch for.
