I have known her for her linguistics skills and her ability to master different languages but never imagined her lovely singing using the Spanish language. She finds Spanish smoother than other languages. Perhaps her language skills are the result of her love for music since infancy. She will never dance to a tune without lyrically making a playback.
She is an active member of the Pentecostal Church in France. Sometimes, she leads the Sunday service and worship in a very active and inspiring manner.
Her father Nana Kwame is one of the first Ghanaians in Europe to promote Ghanaian artists in Europe during the 1980s. He was one of the first to negotiate with Ghanaian artists such as Kojo Antwi, Dady Lumba, Amakye Dede etc..when they wanted to sell their music in Europe.
“Music, especially Ghanaian music has always been part of me because of my father, he loves it and so do I” she said during a conversation with NKS Dumorine.
“I used Spanish because, I find the language very beautiful, especially when used in music. Also, I wanted to do something different. Actually, I have always sang this song from my very young age. So together with my younger twin brothers we decided to make it official and that is what you are seeing today.” The title of the song is “ Ropa “
Amanda is a very dynamique young lady who is very active in our community. She is always present when it comes to initiatives leading to the progress of our community. A year ago her wedding was counted amongst the most glamorous within the Ghanaian community in France.
Akoss, because she was born on Sunday which is Akosua for any girl born on that day in the Akan tradition where the parents find their root.
I wish her success in all her undertakings !!!
