Biography

Nya Jade is a 32 year old female neo soul singer/songwriter based out of San Francisco, California. She is from Ghana. Nya Jade is the founder of NYA (Nurturing Young Africa) Foundation, whose vision is to support the welfare of African children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and other circumstances thereby restoring human dignity in the orphan generation of Africa.

Singer-songwriter and entrepreneur Nya Jade is at the helm of the new “do-it-yourself” movement in music and major critics are taking notice. Born in the West African country of Ghana and raised around the world, this Stanford educated artist created her own record label to do music her way. The duality of working as both artist and record label head has made her an exciting person to watch in the ever changing landscape of the music industry.

A pre-med student until a life changing car-accident, Nya channelled pain and suffering into a determination to follow a dream. Graduating from Stanford in 1998 with both a bachelors in Economics and a masters in Sociology, Nya did a brief stint in the big corporate world. Still passionate about music, Nya secured funding from a Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist to create her record label Katako Records.
