This is when she was given the nickname Fantana by her manager. Her breakthrough was when she released the single “So What” in June 2019.

Although the song gained instant success, this has been overshadowed by rumours about her criminal record when she was back in the US and the tension between her and Wendy Shay.

Even though she has explained what happened in the US over and over in many interviews.

It also looks like majority of her interview questions are always based on her relationship with Wendy Shay rather than what she is doing and what she has coming up.

Ghana doesn’t have many female artists, there is therefore no need to try and create tension between Wendy Shay and Fantana.

We hope people will just let Fantana be and concentrate on her music….
