Nana Richard Abiona is a skilled producer and rapper who has been a driving force behind a mobile studio that has helped young people in his community realize their musical dreams.

In addition, he was a founding member of the TINA (This Is New Africa) movement, which aimed to inspire Africans to use their skills to rebuild their communities and to be proud of their cultural heritage.

He traveled to Ghana in 2011 to meet with African producer Killbeatz and rapper Tiffany, and the three collaborated on the viral dance hit “Azonto,” which had millions of people across the world emulating his routines.

His unique blend of Afro-beats, hip-hop, and rap earned him comparisons to Akon and K’naan, and he went on to win the Urban Music Award for Best Afro-Beats Musician in 2012, as well as a nomination for a Ghana Music Award, making him the first U.K.-based artist to be considered.

With over a million views on his YouTube channel and the successful publication of his 2012 EP The Buzz, his popularity was impossible to ignore. Fuse’s single “Antenna,” which featured American rapper Wyclef Jean and reached the Top Ten of the UK Singles Chart the following year, created yet another dance craze.
