George Nash, known by his stage name Boy Nash, is a creative who specializes in rap, spoken word, poetry, and rough singing. He is of English descent, born and raised in south London, whilst his parents are of Ghanaian descent. As a youngster in South London, growing up he was heavily influenced by grime artists such as Dizzee Rascal and Wiley, hence he also started rapping with his friends on the block (Eastfields Estate). During this time he clashed a few emcees and attended Grime sets with other youngsters in the area. At the age of 15, Boy Nash moved back to Ghana; He went to St Johns Grammar secondary school and upon completion, he won the Best Rapper award at their leaver’s event. He was still rapping, but not pursuing a career in it at this time. In Nash’s own words, he says, “The music chose me; I never chose it”. At the age of 18, he met up with fellow rappers Looney TKR and Nova. They recorded a song titled Me yE Rapper (I am a rapper) with Ghana’s number one hip hop producer Jay So (who produced Sarkodie’s first album). This song made waves across Ghana’s underground scene, and it found its way to mainstream radio. As recognition of the song grew, Boy Nash, Loonee TKR, and Nova decided to form a group called Ghetto Rep. In 2010, their critically acclaimed tape was released with features from prominent Ghana-based artists such as Joey B, Bra Kevin, Gemini, Wanlov da Kubolor, Shaker, and many more. Ghana received this project with open arms. In Ghana, people refer to him as the “grime kid”, since he was the only artist in Ghana rapping with a British accent and living there at the same time. After Ghetto Rep, Boy Nash moved into a solo career. He has worked with artists such as Tribal Magz, D Black (Africa’s 2nd Best Rapper), and was affiliated with media mogul Jay Foley, Edem (Last 2), Kwaku T, and C Real (emcee Africa Fame) . In 2012, Boy Nash returned to the U.K. permanently, and decided to pursue his musical career. In 2014, he released his debut E.P. entitled Gods Image II: Instinct to Increase. Boy Nash describes this project (in his own words) “This tape is a pure classic”. The release was received well by the U.K crowd. Boy Nash started attending open mics, were he performed a song of the E.P called Deep Thoughts. This got him noticed by promoter’s and fellow musicians, alike. Fuse ODG has also seen him perform at the Old Queens Head; he complimented Boy Nash on his performance, saying, “Boy Nash, your set was sick! Didn’t know you was back in the country!”. Boy Nash has performed at many events across London, including the great British Carnival at the Olympic stadium, World Changer Show at Box Park, and Music Junkie at the famous Queen's Head venue in Hoxton. He was also called on stage by Jay Electronica at XOYO to kick a freestyle.
