“Fashion they say is what you buy, but the style is what you do with it”. For the past four years, one amazing lady has been doing magic in creating the visual style and appearance of the most decorated rapper in Africa – Sarkodie and some other international acts and has made a business out of it.
Ghanaian born, but the UK raised and based Nana Odum, popularly known as TrendyRail, a full-time stylist whose passion got flared up by happenstance during her five years’ work experience as a Visual Merchandiser. Her love for styling has now led to building a business out of her passion.
The now pro stylist who started off in 2014, but branded properly to position herself well in 2015 traced her creativity to her bloodline, saying, almost everyone in her family is creative in some sort of way. To oust the fear of being an ordinary stylist, TrendyRail goes out of her way to make her style have a perfect blend of antiquity while the essential 21st ubiquitous looks are not downplayed.
TrendyRail since the inception of her rocky journey to becoming an accepted name in the styling, space have had her ups and downs, but certainly, styling an artist you don’t like seemed like the height of the rock right. That’s how she met her now cash cow client, Sarkodie.
“I got a call to Style Sarkodie by a director I had previously worked with. Since I wasn’t really a fan of his music, I was a little on the edge. It was more like emotions v’s Money.” She said with a smile. “I obviously choose money! But imagine being on set and you are there to style somebody you don’t like? It was soo funny because he noticed it too. To cut a long story short, he was so fun to be around and my opinion completely changed. He then became my client after I styled him for “Tonga – Joey B Ft Sarkodie.” Sark is more or less my Big brother now.” Shared by TrendyReail on her first working experience with Sarkodie.
The daring stylist who has over the years worked with the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Wande Coal, Koredo Bello, Kuami Eugene, Kidi and MzVee has changed the face of artistic looks and artiste appearance. She is poised on expanding her territories, but faced with some impervious; understanding the need for a stylist by arts, funds as well as the will to stand out.
Responding to why she has not worked with more Ghanaian celebrities, she said. “This answer might rub some people the wrong way, but I must be honest! It will be a dream come true to have a few clients in Ghana but I’ve come to realize that Ghanaians love luxury, but the majority of them doesn’t want to pay for that luxury. Some are under the impression that “Tagging you” will bring you numbers on social media, but I’m sorry, these numbers on social media does not bring money to my table.”
She continued saying, “I’ve had meetings with a few, but I feel like they just don’t get the essence of it. Branding is the foundation of every creative, so if you don’t take it seriously you will definitely become mediocre. I prefer one client who understands and knows the worth of their brand. This type of client is worth my time and I will be more than happy to invest my creativity.”
TrendyRail is open to working with other artists on the continent if approached with a good deal. Be on the lookout for her new creations which will soon be released. Check our some of her works below.

Strongman Finally Breaks His Silence On Prosper – Nana Ama Issue
Ghana was on fire some 2-3 weeks ago when Strongman and Medikal took the whole nation on an exciting ride.
Strongman and Medikal had a fierce lyrical battle and several shots were thrown at each other in four different songs.
In Medikal’s second reply to Strongman dubbed “The Last Burial”, he took a swipe at Strongman’s girlfriend Nana Ama.
According to Medikal, one guy by name Prosper fingered Nana Ama and didn’t even have $£* with her because her vayjay stunk.
Medikal went on to say in the same song that after all this, Nana Ama was given just Ghc2000.
Social media went haywire after this sudden revelation and Nana Ama was severely mocked and trolled due to that.
Strongman has reacted for the very first time concerning this issue and he said they aren’t aware of any guy with that name.
“Nana Ama and I have no knowledge of this guy and there is no truth in what Medikal said. She is my girlfriend and I know her very well. I know how she is.” Strongman stated in an interview with Delay.
The rapper indicated that he can bet with his life and even swear that Nana Ama can never do a thing like that.
“If she had a bad smell down there, then I would have believed to an extent that the Prosper thing was true. But since she is very okay down there, there is no way the Prosper issue would be true”
Strongman and Nana Ama have been dating for close to 4 years now and Strongman also disclosed that for sure Nana Ama is his wife!

I Haven’t Slept With Any Of My Managers : Eazzy
Songstress Eazzy has disclosed that she hasn’t dated any her managers before and has also given the advantages and disadvantages of dating a manager.
Reacting to artiste manager Bulldog’s claim that managers should sleep with their female artists on Radio Central with Amansan Krakye, Eazzy admitted that Bulldog is right in some way.
“I think he is right in a way and he is wrong in a way also. He is right because for an artist to do well the manager has to have full interest. He has to think about the artist when he is sleeping, waking up, eating so if the person is your boyfriend or husband you will become the most important person to him.
He wants to see you do well, he wants to see you explore and go all the places an artist will like to go. He will put all his energy into it. So if the person loves you that’s the good side”, she explained.
Eazzy also explained that there is a negative side to because it doesn’t always make the business a success.
“The negative side is sometimes when you mix business with pleasure, it doesn’t always last, it doesn’t always go well. That’s why I said there is a good side to what he is saying and bad side as well”, she added.
The “Wengeze” hitmaker also revealed that she hasn’t slept with any of her managers before but if you are a female artiste and your manager is in love with you it’s not bad.
“Personally I haven’t had a situation whereby my manager and I have dated. I have always love business with the business so when there is an issue and we can’t solve it we can go our peaceful ways and can still be cool. I have been under a label like Lynx, I didn’t have a relationship with any of them so right now if Richie meets me he can hug me, raise me, we can talk online. But if the person is was you love it becomes difficult so for me I wish women will push their talents with determination, hard work and what is meant for you will come. But if you have a manager and he loves you that’s not bad. There is 50/50 advantage and disadvantage too”, she divulged.
