TONA

Updated: Apr 20


Tona (@bigtona) is from Toronto, ON but hails from Ghana, Africa. The name “Tona” was given to him because of his distinctive tone of voice. Tona was the recipient of a Juno award for “Best Rap Recording” in 2015 and also a winner of the Sirius XM Radio Indies award for “Best Rap Group of the year”, both as part the collective “Naturally Born Strangers”. His track "Dial Tone", off the Don't Holla EP, earned Tona a Stylus Award nomination as well, not to mention a permanent spot on Toronto's influential station, Flow 93.5fm. Tona continues to play shows internationally, and make a credible contribution to the scene. His entrepreneurial spirit, sharp-witted, and metaphorical rhymes make him one of the best players on the rise in the game of hip-hop. His next album “July 26th” drops as you would assume this July, and the first single to be released is called “Links” which can be found on most streaming platforms.
