Nanefua Pizza, better known as Gunga, is a character who made her debut in the episode "Beach Party".


Nanefua is a short elderly woman with wafer-gray hair done up in a large bun. She wears an acapulco-green sweater, cashmere-colored shorts, pink flip-flop sandals with white socks on, and has a thin light pink scarf around her neck. She also wears large round black glasses, and when working at Fish Stew Pizza, the company's apron. In "Ocean Gem", she wore a blueish-green one-piece swimsuit with a corn-yellow rubber ring shaped like a duck.


Nanefua is a peaceful woman who is the mother of Kofi and grandmother of both Kiki and Jenny. She is a very playful old woman who enjoys to joke around and is concerned with keeping harmony and peace within her family and diffusing stressful situations. She works with the rest of her family at Fish Stew Pizza cutting fish in the back. However, she is also very violent when she is deceived, as shown when the citizens of Beach City find out the power is still out after Bill Dewey predicted its return by nightfall, as she ordered the citizens to tip his promotional truck.

Gunga's son and employer. Nanefua acts as a foil to Kofi's high strung personality, being playful while he is dead serious. Kofi sometimes thinks Nanefua is crazy, as shown when she and Steven ran close in circles to the Giant Pufferfish in "Beach Party". Though she is his employee, Kofi respects her fully and refers to her as "Mom".

Episode Appearances


  • According to Ian Jones-Quartey, both Kofi and Nanefua were born in Ghana, while Kiki and Jenny were both born in Beach City.[1]
  • Nanefua is partially based on the late Theodosia Okoh, Ian Jones-Quartey's grandmother and a national icon for the Republic of Ghana.[2]
  • A young Nanefua, along with her mother, can be seen in Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #1 spotting Amethyst as an owl in Pearl's Glass Ghost story. Whether or not this actually happened is up for debate, as that story was made up to scare Amethyst and ended with her turned to glass.
