BIOGRAPHY

Faustina Charles Mfinanga, popularly known by her stage name Nandy is a Tanzanian singer and songwriter. She was born on the 9th of November, 1992 in  Moshi. Mfinanga attended Mawenzi Primary School and later joined Lomwe High School where she became the head of the School choir.

She started performing at a very tender age. At age 5, she was an active member of her Sunday school choir at KKKT Lutheran church in Moshi.

Nandy emerged in the early 2010s with a sound that combines elements of dancehall, hip-hop, reggae, R&B, and Afrobeat.
