‘Woman Power’ Not About Feminism says Ghanaian songstress NanaYaa
NanaYaa, one of Ghana’s finest singers, is not comfortable with people tagging her latest song as feminist.
According to the ‘My Hunny’ hit maker, NanaYaa, her new song ‘Woman Power’ does not talk about feminism neither does it seek to promote feminist ideals.
“‘Woman Power’ as a title has a very broad meaning but feminism isn’t one,” NanaYaa said.
She stated that the song rather talks about how powerful women are when it comes to having men at their beck and call.
“Empowering women to tap into their inner most power to maintain their relationship, sex life is not feminism,” she further noted. NanaYaa has also intimated that she wants to represent women in the best way that she can and she believes her new song will help her in this cause.
