After a hiatus lasting more than a decade, one of the pioneers and arguably one of the most famous female hiplife artistes in the country has decided to make a comeback onto the music scene.

In an interview with Showbiz on Tuesday, Abrewa Nana said Number One produced by, MixMastaGarzy, is the latest from her come back album which is expected to be out later this year. “ I will make the release date known once the singles I have released make the necessary impact. I am back to stay and I have plans to drop more singles in the coming months to herald my return”, she said.
The Odo Filla star, asked fans to expect another single soon, titled Prince Charming, which features Okyeame Kwame and Castro.
Abrewanana described her latest single Number One, as “a classy, love song that will appeal to all ages.” The song, which has a catchy reggae dancehall feel, sees Abrewanana and Eze profess love to each other and promise to love each other forever. They both remind each other that they will always be number one in their hearts.
Giving reasons for her “break,” Abrewanana said she took time off from making music in order to take care of some personal affairs.
“I had to take a break to deal with a few personal stuff and I have also been working on a breast cancer awareness campaign. I even have a song to that effect,” she added.
Also, according to Abrewanana, although she has been away from the public eye for some time now, she has been behind the scenes producing, writing and recording music with various artistes.
She said her comeback was motivated by the love of her fans who have been constantly asking for her return. “Everywhere I go, people are always asking me when I will release a new track so I realised they must be missing me,” she said.
She debunked claims making the rounds that she was feuding with any female artistes in the hiplife family.
“I am actually focusing on sharing my God-given talent within Ghana and beyond. I am not in a rivalry competition with any artiste especially those within the hiplife family. I appreciate the efforts of everyone and I’m ready to collaborate and combine efforts with any artiste who wishes to do so with me,” she stated.
Abrewanana is the first female hiplife artiste in Ghana and she has a number of albums to her credit namely Sagaa released in 2000, African Girl and Maba.
She has also worked with some of the biggest artistes in the country including Samini, Akosua Agyepong among others.
