Singer and socialite, Mona Montrage Faiz is, without doubt, one of the most widely-known Ghanaians on social media.
With her Instagram followers going beyond three million people, Mona's account is a big one. This has also ensured that her IG handle (name) Hajia4Real remains constantly in the minds of people.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Mona has explained how the popular name Hajia4Real came to be.
According to the singer, the name Hajia4Real came up almost 10 years ago and it was inspired by Ramadan.
Mona revealed that she was known as Mona4Real on social media which was basically Facebook for her at the time.
But after successfully undertaking the 30-day fast in the month of Ramadan, she felt she was the real hajia and thus changed her Facebook name from Mona4Real to Hajia4Real.
After the name change, her social media influence has grown until now that she is one of the topmost influencers in Ghana.
"It was some years back. I don't quite remember but it was about eight to ten years ago. My Name was Mona4Real on Facebook and it was during Ramadan. I had fasted the whole 30 days and I was like 'no I'm the real hajia. I'm Hajia4Real. I changed my name on Facebook and boom Hajia4Real started going places.," she told YEN.com.gh excitedly.
Meanwhile, Hajia4Real’s daughter, Naila, seems to be ready to follow in her mother’s footsteps in making music.
In a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Naila has been captured singing her mother’s new song, God’s Child, so perfectly as if she wrote the lyrics.
The little girl was performing with a toy microphone and keyboard, and she is seen playing the keyboard herself.
