Multiple award winning Ghanaian songstress, Efya has explained reasons for her long abscence in the music space.
Speaking in an interview on 3FM with AJ Sarpong, Jane Afia Awindor revealed that a broken heart was the reason why she refrained from singing during that period.
“My heart was broken,” she said to the shock of host, AJ.
According to Efya, her emotional well-being has a significant influence on her artistry. Hence her refusal to confront her pain through music and rather take a step back from the spotlight.
She said …“I was heartbroken that I didn’t want to sing. You know I’m a baby girl so the way I feel matters to me a lot and it wasn’t something I wanted to deal with at that time,” she revealed.
However, Efya indicated that she had been tirelessly working in the music industry for 15 years without taking a break.
She added that despite her personal problems during the period, she actively performed on numerous shows. As well as consistently representing her craft.
“Also, I’ve been working for 15 years without break. And in between these times I’ve been performing on all the shows and still representing. I think I gave everyone their feature,” she concluded.
Talented Efya has one mixtape and an album to her credit since going solo. She has also blessed Ghanaians with several hit songs including One of Your Own ft Bisa Kdei, Daddy Yo ft Wizkid, Getaway, Best In Me and her numerous features with Sarkodie.
