Happy Saturday!



Here’s a joint I’m loving from one of our girl crushes here at FaraiToday! #NoHomo but loving our African girl artists, Eva Olordiah, Sasha, my girl Zara, Kel, Blaise, Kemistry, Weird MC, all repping Nigeria, Lizha James from Mozambique, Cynthia Mare holding it down for Zimbabwe…They are bringing it lovely. I look forward to the day when blazing tracks from African female artists like Tiffany, born Antoinette Tiffany Owusu, from Ghana trend on Twitter like Rebbecca Black and her “Friday” song (which has been taken off from YouTube).

Tiffany‘s “Fake London Boys” came out last year but with the launch of my new TV show, AfroHits Top10 on Afrotainment Music, we have been getting so much love from people, sending us music from African artists!

Born Antoinette Tiffany Owusu on the 20th of March 1987, she attended the Cambridge International School in Kumasi, before moving onto the Yaa Asantewaa High School, which she later dropped out. However, her persistence for fame and fortune was such that she began to pursue her education again, and made it through to I.P.S. to study SIM U.K.

By talking about her childhood struggle in her lyrics, Tiffany was able to make her music relatable to her fan-base. Her first single, ‘How We Do It,’ featuring award winning artist, Richie, was a great success and burst her into the Ghanaian music scene. Following ‘How We Do It,’ she went on to create more hits including ‘Aboa Bi‘ featuring Fresh Prince, and one of the most popular Ghanaian tracks of recent times, ‘Facebook Boy‘ featuring Jane.

Heavily influenced by hip-hop greats like my all-time fave, Notorious B.I.G, MC Lyte, and 2Pac, Tiffany said this about her lyrical prowess: ‘I write about the streets. I say things you will not dare talk about. Mine is about the struggle and the journey.’

Check out Tiffany‘s “Fake London Boys“:
