Nti Frimpong Augustine born on 14 Sep 1989 in the rural village known as Komeso in the Ashanti Region better known by his stage name Nafa City is a Ghanaian recording artist, songwriter, performer and a sound engineer.
As a star light among his peers, he had the love for music and song writing from an early age. He listened to some influential artist like Bob Marley and 2pac and their songs inspired him to develop the style of singing and rapping on a song at the same time. He attended the New Jauben Collage of Commerce and in the year 2008 he recorded his first song “Obaa Hemaa” After graduating from high school he moved to the city to pursue his music career and arriving in Accra in 2008, Nafa City lived in Dome, one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods with his elder sister. Just like his mentor Bob Marley, he struggled in poverty, but he found inspiration in the music around him and he always believed in making a difference.
In the year 2009 and 2010 he battled many MC’s on the Solid FM and the Great FM rap battles and won several battles on the Crystal TV rap shows which was then hosted by Mr. M. Nafa City devoted much of his time to music and in the year 2011 he met Ibee a Ghanaian based Nigerian producer who then expressed interest in working together with him after he witnessed his skills, power and versatility.
They formed the group Dolo Records which became very popular in Dome community and Nafa City recorded great songs like “Right Now”, “Hustler Music”, “You go give me Belle”, “Send us to school”, “In the Zone”,”New Year”, “Oman Yi” and many more in the year 2011 to 2014. He worked on collaborations with Nyax,Sean Taylor, Obibini, Ras Kuuku and many more.
Most of the Dolo Records members went their separate ways including the main engineer in 2014 and Nafa City took in charge of the studio as the main producer and he recorded a mixtape album with Nyax the founder of dolo records. After losing his mother on 7th Jan,2016 Nafa City faced a lot of challenges and he discovered that he was born into two worlds (music and herbs).
On January 7th, 2017 after 9 years of being underground and exactly a year after losing his mother Nafa City decided to begin his first official promotion with the song titled Marie J (a single from the upcoming album “My Story”) to mark a significant and memorable years of pain and endurance. And to tell the fans that the journey has just begin therefore they should fasten their seat belts because they are going to fly.
Nafa city with the signature Dacity produces most of his songs. Explaining the song, Nafa City said “The song Marie j talks about the special woman in my life. She’s the only woman who has been there for me throughout this years and through all the ups and downs in my music career. This woman, Marie J thought me how to always remain focus, temperance, sincere, calm, hardworking, ambitious and loyal to the game and to the music world.
And this makes her the smartest woman I’ve ever met. It seems like she has been together with so many great men and famous musicians before we met because she understands music a lot and anytime she’s around me I feel great and as if she is opening my third eye and I’ll feel so high with hopes for a better tomorrow.”
“She thought me how to do good music, from the production of the instrumentals(beat), writing the song and even how to rap and sing on them. She gives me a great perception about the society, the cry of the people, struggling, poverty and hardships in the life’s of the ordinary people living in the ghetto’s. She’s a pretty woman, soft and calm like a dove and she hates violence and immorality so I try to learn her ways. She’s a different girl and I need her in my life.” He added…
He concluded by saying “She’s committed, she’ll always obey and wait for your final say. She supports all the bold decisions I make because she’s brave and has great confidence in me. The best among her words is when she told me that “we are ready for life”,and I asked her “will this life be easy?” She smiled, looked into my eyes and said “the world is ours and everything in it”. So I rise up each day, doing the best I can with all I have. And since we’ve been together everybody like we (us).”
