Petrah was born into a family of five girls in Accra, Ghana, and was raised in the Christian faith by a strong mother. It all began when she was a small child, with a strong vocal capacity that grew over time as she participated in church musical events.
Her parents were initially concerned and anxious, but as time passed, they came to understand and support her. Krobo Girls Senior High School was where she completed her high school studies.
She earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing from the University of Professional Studies in Accra.
Her stage name Petrah is derived from the Greek word "petros," which means "stone" or "rock." Beyonce, Whitney Houston, and Tiwa Savage are among her musical idols, and she aspires to be just like them.
She began singing in church at a young age. She was subsequently introduced to one of Manner Records' managers, was signed to the label, and launched her career as a professional musician in March 2016 with her debut single "My Man." Petrah's debut track, "My Man," garnered her her first Vodafone Ghana Music Awards nomination in the category of "Best Female Vocalist" in 2017.
Her second single, Baby, was released in 2016 and featured Nigerian sensation Reekado Banks. It topped the local and international music charts for weeks and was nominated for the 4SyteTV Music Video in the 'Best Discovery Video' category.
