Anybody who sees Nanny performing immediately feels that music for him is more than just a career.
It's how he translates rhythms and notes into pure essence – often snatching audiences away - and other times energizing them enough so they can stand up and dance, like Bob Marley once said, “and sweat until you can’t sweat no more."
His ability to make any kind of music sound smooth makes Nanny a notable and gifted artist. And that’s what he is, a gifted artist.
