Biography

Considered by many as one of the hardest working men in the fusion of TRUE SCHOOL HIP HOP and WEST AFRICAN HOME GROWN HIP - LIFE, M3NSA is poised to be London City’s premier indie-soul SINGER, EMCEE and PRODUCER. His music is a unique blend of beats from the genres of Gnarls Barkley, Foreign Exchange, J Dilla, Mos Def and Peven Everret; his lyrics possess refreshingly EFFORTLESS WITTICISM and ‘LAUGH OUT LOUD” quips that are ENTERTAINING and PROVOCATIVE; and he comes from a rich background that has informed his music and inspired his lyrics.

M3NSA is the third son of his parents and holds true the popular Ghanaian adage that “afie biara Mensa wo mu,” which literally means every household has a third-born son. His father, Tumi Ebo Ansah, rocked stages as a guitarist of British afro-pop sensation, OSIBISA, and also starred in HERITAGE AFRICA (winner of the outstanding film award at the 1989 London Film Festival) and his mother, the biggest influence on his music, taught him to play the piano when he was just eight years old. His cousin, Joey Ansah has featured in popular movies such as the BOURNE ULTIMATUM and BATMAN BEGINS. M3NSA is also nephew to film director, Kwaw Ansah, who directed HERITAGE AFRICA, and Kofi Ansah, a fashion designer who designed clothes for the royal family wedding in the 1980s.

It is no wonder then that M3NSA was influenced by his family’s artistic lineage. He grew up celebrating his roots and found a passion in music.
