According to Nana, she unexpectedly got pregnant immediately after senior high school (secondary school) and it hit her like a missile.
Before she turned 20, Nana Aba had become a mother and had to work to cater for her baby boy.
She added that though the pregnancy and motherhood were challenging for her, she took solace in her son who became her source of strength.
“I had my son before I turned 20. It was an eye-opener and shocking but there was a bit of fun as well just seeing my son smile made me happy.

"I got pregnant immediately after SHS and it happened really fast for me so some of the things 20, 21, 22 years olds were doing I never got the chance to do because I had to work and also be a mother.
"It was a shock for me, I never imagine that. It hit me like a missile but it was fun in a certain way,” she said.
Nana Aba made the revelations while appearing as one of the guests on Joy FM's Strong and Sassy show on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
