Biography of Amandzeba


Nat Brew aka Amandzeba is a native of Cape Coast (Oguaa), was born and bred in Accra .

Amandzeba Nat Brew was very talented in his youthful days. He mimicked very well every song he heard. His father Mr. Ato Brew had ironically named him Nat King Cole Brew (perhaps after his own idol musician).

His upbringing was accompanied by such rigidity that he was almost left with no room to exhibit his God given talents, especially in the field of soccer and music.

At the primary school level he could sing very well to the joy of his tutors and as a result of that he always took part in every singing contest which was common in those days.

Simultaneously he could play soccer very well, and this did not affect his academic performance in any way.

Because he was forbidden to practice his musicship at home, he utilized most of his secondary school period to compose most of the songs he has recorded and still do record.

His father had wished his son to climb up the academic ladder to qualify in one of the Ghanaian cherished professions like medicine, law engineering, but young Nat Brew’s version of what he wanted to be a future was not that of his father’s.

When he announced to his father that he wanted to pursue a career in music, his father’s fury forced young Nat Brew to leave home to stay with a friend.

He met Oliver Garshon and learnt how to play the acoustic guitar from him. Armed with this he started working on his demo which was later to impress Sammy Odo so much so that he advised him to seek a band to back him.

The advice turned out to be a blessing as he came out too soon after with his first song ‘The Devil’. Later his song ‘Kpanlogo Ye De’ became an instant hit on the group’s first album.

Amandzeba is certainly a great highlife artiste, his contribution to the highlife industry will for long be indispensable.

The uniqueness of his music has won him a number of awards, including the ultimate prize at the 7th International Alphine festival held in Saas Fee, a tourist village in Switzerland.

Today “Amandzeba has already created a niche for himself in Ghana and other parts of Africa.

He employs indigenous Ghanaian rhythms true but that is not all. He has an enormous knowledge of African rhythms and melodies too.

Another strong side of this musician, is his command of Ghanaian languages like Ga, Hausa and his own mother tongue Fanti. He blends his command of these languages with his music and the products are irresitible.

Yet another attribute of Amandzeba is his ability to exploit how well he uses banters, taunts and rhymes in dressing his rich lyrics that are mostly social commentaries, analysis of politics or narration of history.
