Fantana, born Francine Kouffie, burst onto the music scene in 2018 with her debut single, “So What,” which received widespread airplay and established her as one of Ghana’s rising stars.
She followed up with other hit songs such as “Girls Hate On Girls” and “Rich Gyal Anthem,” but it is her raunchy photos and rumours of body enhancement that have kept her on the lips of netizens to this day.
She joins Annie Macaulay-Idibia (Nigeria), 2Baba (Nigeria), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), Zari the Boss Lady (Uganda), Naked DJ (South Africa), Khanyi Mbau (South Africa), Nadia Nakai (Zimbabwe), Swanky Jerry (Nigeria), Andile Ncube (South Africa), and Kayleigh Schwark (South Africa) in the original cast.
The reality show promises to be a fun and exciting ride with five new faces in the new season, including South African diva Bonang Matheba, Namibian star Luis Munana, and South Africans Rosette and Sebabatso.
The Netflix original, filled with drama, romance, and plenty of surprises, surprised viewers when it debuted in 2022, giving them a rare glimpse into the lives of some of Africa’s biggest celebrities and allowing them to see them in a more intimate and unfiltered light.
