Celebrated Ghanaian singer, Efya has shed light on her prolonged musical hiatus and her erratic song release schedule.
Jane Fara Fauzzier Afia Boafowaa Yahaya Awindor, 36 offered a frank explanation as to why she had been absent from show business for such a long time during her appearance as a guest on 3FM’s Urban Blend with AJ Sarpong.
In the exclusive interview, the ‘Forgetting Me’ songstress 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 the award-winning songbird and a self-proclaimed “baby girl,” 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.
“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
