Fadu, born Faduad Hammond, is an upcoming 20-year-old Afrobeat artist with Ghanaian and Nigerian roots. The Dutch born singer fell in love with music at the age of 14 and grew up learning to play the guitar and listening to artists like Toni Braxton, Aaliyah, Style Plus, Mzbel, Kumi Guitar,Fuse ODG and Wizkid.

Her first song called “Over Again” came out when she was 17 years and she has been exploring Afrobeat since then. After 3 years Fadu is back with her newest single called “Feelings” created by Dutch producer Celestino and Ghanaian beatmaker Linkin.

The song describes a long distance relationship between her and a “Ghanaian” guy with whom she has these so called feelings for.

Fadu wants to show the people of Ghana that it is possible to still be in touch with her fatherland even though she grew up on another continent. She hopes to become an international influence on the Afrobeat community and collaborate with artists that share the same passion.

Fadu is managed by film producer/director Ato Yanney Jnr in Ghana and has the blessing of her parents who also support her financially.

She is a student of the Hague University of Applied Science in the Netherlands where she is studying Law.
