Iwan (I-Win-Always-Naturally), a student of the University of Ghana reading Theatre Art, Music and Dance, is the kid to watch out for. From Bullhaus Entertainment, the force behind the hiplife duo 5five, Iwan is expected to take the music industry by storm with some interesting rhythms from his debut album titled "Iwan - My Time".

He already has a two singles out already "Still Love Me" & Fear God", a rendition of T.I's 'Live Your Life' dubbed enjoying airplay on radio stations in
the country and some parts of the world.

Born in Accra to Mr. Issahaku Atta and Mrs. Ajara Mamudu, he is the last among three boys and four girls. He describes himself as a humble, quiet, tolerant, hardworking and creative person.

Iwan completed St. John's Junior Sec. School in 2001 and proceeded to the Accra High School where he became the entertainment prefect in his third year. He participated in many school events, and represented the school in competitions outside campus.

He thus took music seriously from the secondary school and started penciling down commercial songs. In his bid to further build his musical career, he took a course in sound engineering.

Iwan then started recording his album in various studios he found himself working at. He worked with Step 2 Studios, formerly called Family Fun, GH Studios, Rich City Studios, 5th Project and a few others where he mastered his art.

In a couple of months, he had recorded 6 songs, before joining Bullhaus Entertainment.
“I felt they are the best to handle me after I realised what they had achieved with 5five,” he says of Bullhaus Entertainment.

Since he became part of the Bullhaus family, he has featured in the remix version of 5five's 'Afrikan Gurls' together with Kwaw Kese, 4x4 and Gyino. Since then, Iwan has been climbing every stage with 5five. And featured on shows like: Miss Ghana 2008, Joy FM's Nite with the Stars, Exopa Fashion Nite, Kwaw Kese Beach Bash, Sound Splash among others. His first solo act on stage was at the just-ended 4syte video awards, and then at the Ghana Music Awards festival.
