I started blogging in 2015. I was homesick and wanted to feel connected by educating people in the West about the “mysterious” continent of Africa. It was all I had experienced. The utter shock that me, an African woman was fitting into spaces so well was not familiar to them. So I did what I knew how to do best-write.

I wrote about my love for Africa. Our people. Our food. Our lifestyle. Our radiance. Our history. Our homes. And our story. The blog was literally called, MY LOVE LETTER TO AFRICA.

As I continued to write, I started experiencing love from my readers. The love for more. They did not just want to know about my home. They wanted me to talk about me. So I wrote some more.

That journey has led me here, to this blog. A place where I share everything I love to do and absolutely hate. A place of conversation and dialogue. A place where I share my ideas and take in yours.

This blog is a journey into the unknown because when life throws us curveballs or something new and amazing, NANA ASHANTI will be here to let you know about it. So feel at home “madanfo”.
