Singer, Nina Ricchie joined the music bandwagon around a year ago and although she is quite good, it is not her talent that is getting attention. It is her body.
She participated in Isocial, a show that dares celebrities to do things that they would not do under normal circumstances and was tasked to sell sachet water at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
However, her curves and bust drew a lot of attention and although she gets positive comments from people, some believe she may have had some surgical work done on her body but she denies that.
“I get people asking me this question a lot and usually I will just ignore them but I want to say now that whatever they see is as real as anything, I do not need implants to get this. My secret is that I have worked on my body for a long time.
“I didn’t get here in a day, a month or a year, it took me years. I started working out at the age of eight. I go to the gym and I love to swim.
“African girls or Ghanaians to be precise are naturally endowed with hour glass figures, it is just a matter of you working out for it to be visible,” she said.
On how she deals with all the attention she gets, Nina Ricchie, born Nina Yaa Sancio, who comes from the Ashanti Region but lives in Canada said, “I am used to the attention, it is not anything new. I just walk about with my head high as if nothing is happening.”
“I cannot do anything about my body, I am very aware of what I carry so it is not like I expect some kind of extra attention.
“People stopping to have a look at me is nothing new, so I am used to it,” the Afropop singer added.
Nina Ricchie, who started music at 11 years says she is very disciplined. “I am out going, adventurous but also disciplined. Apart from that I can say I am a ‘Jacqueline’ of all trades. I don’t like to be cheated or taken advantage of and I also want to surround myself with positive people.”
Nina Ricchie is out with a new song called Tsoobi and is currently doing the rounds for the promotion.
