Her late father, Mr Kwesi Anamoah — who was a former GBC broadcaster — was a strong Hindu faithful at the Hindu Monastery of Africa located at Odorkor in Accra for over 30 years. His Hindu-initiated name was Om Anamoah.

Ms Nana Aba Anamoah as a teenage girl after Senior High School started a relationship with Richard Brown aka Osebo — CEO of Zara Clothing Ghana — that resulted in the birth of now big boy, Jyoti Paa Kow Anamoah some 20 years ago.
According to Richard Brown — real name, Seth Appiah Boamah — he left his shop (247 Boutique at North Kaneshie) with his younger brother for a program at a drinking spot called Israel — which is located at Amasaman.
On their way to the Israel spot at Amasaman, he (Osebo) spotted this beautiful lady (Nana Aba Anamoah) along the way at Swan Lake junction that he really wanted to talk to but was discouraged by his brother who told him that he didn’t have any ‘good message’ for her even if they stopped to talk to her.
Upon their return from Amasaman, they spotted the same Nana Aba Anamoah on the way but this time around, they stopped and picked her up in their car.

As a diehard fan of Manchester United Football Club, Nana Aba Anamoah caused one of the biggest scandals ever on Twitter by ‘innocently’ photo-shopping an image of Old Trafford stadium filled with Manchester United fans that made it look as though she was really at the stadium to support her team when it wasn’t so.
Her employer then, the TV3 Network owned by Media General, who felt embarrassed by her act, released a press statement on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, suspending her until further notice.
The press release partly read:
“After preliminary investigations internally, and in accordance with TV3’s own commitment to the highest level of professionalism, Management has decided to take Nana Aba Anamoah off air until further notice.”
The host of ‘Da Divas’ show later apologized and said it was just a prank.
However, Nana Aba Anamoah who was bent on shaming all her critics, personally paid a visit to the Old Trafford on Sunday October 25th, 2015, to witness the Manchester derby (Manchester United vs Manchester City) which ended in a goalless draw game.
