Musician, Nana Yaa was not on speaking terms with her dad, highlife legend Pat Thomas for years.
Yaa told Kofi Okyere Darko on 360Live on Live FM, she didn’t hear from her dad for some seven years during her stay in Liberia.
“He was supposed to go there (Liberia), and he ended up in Germany. And he was supposed to take us along with him but that didn’t happen so somehow we ended up with her and he was supposed to come back to Liberia to do his show and bring us back home. And that didn’t happen; we ended up staying, my brother and I. He passed away over there, and we ended up staying there for seven years, no sign of my dad, no calls, no nothing.”
The hurt and pain led to the situation where she decided not to talk to dad.
“.. so it was a crazy situation, so for years I didn’t speak to my dad. I didn’t want to know because as far as I was concerned, he deserted us. It was hard, it was crazy I didn’t have my own family.”
I was really close to him before I went to Liberia so when that happened, I was like men, I was bitter towards him for years. I was angry.
She also spoke about her career, personal life and future goals. Nana is working on a new musical project which she says will likely featured appearances by her dad, 2FaceIdibia, E.L, Irene Logan, Kojo Antwi, Wizkid and Brymo.
