Geego App hosted an interview with Nana Atta after her single titled Abafana was out in all digital platform.


Why you called your single abafana ?

The song is titled "ABAFANA" because it talks about issues revolving around the bad behavior/ character of many men. In this case, from a females perspective.

What was the mood and feeling like in the studio when recording Abafana?

The song idea came around the time when our country was in a frightening state with GBV,human trafficking,The Lockdown,etc. So I wanted to put together a song that would touch base on these issues but at the same time, I felt there have been too much sadness so I decided to make the  song a sing-along and fun at the same time.

If you  are being honest from the bottom of your hearts, Do you think youve created an Anthem for the country?

I believe a lot of people , especially women, will relate to this song as the issues that I talk about in the song are quite common and I believe most people have experienced such so yeah I so believe that I've created a song for everyone, an anthem if you'd like to call it that.


If you  were to remake any song, what would it be and why?

I would remake a song of mine which was leaked years ago. The song is titled "Bang'hlebile". I'd remake it just to be able to promote it and release it properly like I had planned to before it was leaked.

What exciting feature do you have or are planning on working with? And should we expect an album soon?

I'm very excited about the near future. I'm working on my E.P which will drop early 2021. I'm looking forward to an international feature that I'm currently working on( can't say for now). I'm very big on writing so I'm looking forward to working with a lot of other artists from across the continent of Africa.

What or who is your biggest inspirations?

I'm inspired by a lot of things and people. But I think to answer your question fairly I'd have to say that what drives me the most is my mother and many other women like her. People that persevere and are resilient, be it musicians, athletes, etc. I'm inspired by other people's stories.
