Creative / Artist African Digital Art
Nana Asaase is a Ghanaian spoken word artist, writer, trainer in creative writing, and master of ceremonies. His works are mostly rendered in both English and Twi (one of the dominant Ghanaian languages). He also employs other languages when necessary. He has performed for Presidents, diplomats, business executives, traditional rulers, and even the ordinary cab driver in Ghana. Despite being young, Nana’s deep appreciation of ‘Akan oratory’ embodied in appellations directed at the high and mighty, and of Ghanaian folklore, has earned him a seat around the table of the country’s literary giants. He is a former student of the University of Ghana, Legon and was under the tutelage of Prof Kofi Anyidoho, a giant in Ghanaian and African literature. He has been interviewed on both local and international radio and television networks, including the BBC and CNN’s “African Voices” program. He is a member of Ghana’s National Folklore Board.
