Ghanaian-Netherlands songstress Nira known for her powerful voice goes hard unto the Ghanaian/Netherlands music scenes with her new song which she tilled ‘CLAP’
Nira who currently is based in The Hague city (DenHaag) in the Netherlands, speaks to Africanhitz.com exclusively about her life, music and growing up.
Growing up for me i was always surrounded by music and creative people, and always saw my grandfather and uncle play the piano fantastical, whiles my grandmother and aunts sang along.
I also learnt a lot from concerts and music festivals which my mother used to attend with her and the dance classes she encouraged me to enroll with which adding up the entrepreneurial and creative mentality from my dad and all the hip-life videos and Cd’s my dad used to play when i was a little girl really influenced my kind of music now.
Nira’s new single track ‘CLAP‘ is an Afro pop club track with a catchy patua rap, which will make you wanna move and dance, this song is not as deep as her last hit ‘Look at me‘ but a light fun song with a wink to other hit songs from other artists. This song was produced in Ghana by Dikoder and the video was shot in Holland.

Nira is a graduate with a degree in fashion design and a degree for interior designer. After her last song release Nira already made it clear that she was working on other projects as well besides her music. In the meantime, she has started new ventures such as an interior decorating business, a clothing line and online shop called ‘By Nira‘ and a website called www.ghaneeseten.com with typical Ghanaian recipes, pretty food pictures along the recipes and nice information about Ghana. the site is in Dutch called ‘ghanees eten’ which means: Ghanaian dishes. She started the site not only because of the love for Ghanaian food but also because she wants to put Ghana and everything that has to do with our country, culture and food in a positive light and share some of our delights with the Dutch and Dutch/Ghanaian (youngsters)an anyone interested. and what better way to inform and show people things of your culture?! Her fashion line by Nira is a blend of African fashion mixed with Western style, handmade pieces by Nira herself and cute colorful items. And once again she is bringing both of her two worlds together and sharing it with others!
