This weeks guest

M3NSA

This week we welcome M3NSA, Bondzie Mensa Ansah; British Ghanaian producer, composer, rapper, singer, and filmmaker.

He is known for his recognisable sound and instinctual storytelling while still deeply rooted in his motherland. He has grown into an international sensation because of his ability to navigate different languages, cultures, and art expressions.

M3NSA began his musical career as a member of The Lifeline Family, a group he founded and worked with as a rapper. He later extended his talent to producing music, including various Ghanaian musicians, some of which include SaminiKK FosuObour and Tic Tac.  

As a music artist, M3NSA has toured with musicians such as the Wu-Tang Clan and The Roots. M3NSA’s works have gained recognition from the KORA, MOBO Awards, and the Ghana Music Awards

Solo albums, 2001 – Repablic, 2004 – Daily Basses, 2007 – Weather Report & 2011 – No.1 Mango Street.

More From Our Guest

If you asked many Ghanaian rappers why they rap, they would probably answer, “Because of M3NSA”.

M3NSA is known for his recognisable sound and instinctual storytelling. Although his roots are still deeply rooted in Ghana, he has grown into an international artist through the years. Not only for his ability to navigate different languages but also for different cultures and artistic expressions.

Growing up in a family of artists, he was drawn to creativity. Following his brothers’ passions, he immersed himself in Hip Hop and Ghanaian music, and Manga culture. He was indefinitely suspended from school for missing classes to spend weeks living in a recording studio when he was a teenager. What could have been considered a regrettable episode was a statement towards a conservative educational environment and the inability to nurture a creative mind.

With a career spanning two decades, M3NSA’s work has been recognised with a MOBO nomination for his debut album, No1 Mango Street.

In 2021, M3NSA released his self-titled solo album, “Bondzie” (M3NSA’s full name is Bondzie Mensa Ansah – Akan word for “speak up”/”birth your voice”). We can discover the growth of a man, the development of a producer and composer, the experimentations of a lyricist who can rap in different languages and sing across music genres and styles.

“Bondzie” is not just a collection of songs; it’s also a collection of thoughts and connected stories that still stand on their own independently.

The album has been released with a series of visuals and content and a short documentary, “The Making,”. The documentary will be available at the end of March 2022.
