I Don’t Want People’s Negative Criticisms To Affect Efya’s Potentials – Mother

Celebrated TV host and mother of songstress, Efya, Nana Adwoa Awindoor, has described as sad the seeming persistent criticisms of her daughter.

As a media person, Nana Adwoa is worried that Efya’s criticisms are deliberately concocted to defame the talented singer.

As a mother, Nana Adwoa says she does not want any of the negative comments to get to her daughter.

The host of the long-running ‘Greetings from Abroad’ was speaking with Edem Knight Tay. This was on the ‘Home Affairs Show’ last Saturday.

Efya has been in the news for allegedly dealing in drugs, which she has constantly denied. The ‘Little Things’ singer’s choice of costumes has also come under scrutiny.

But Nana Adwoa couldn’t fathom why artistes abroad are loved and adored by people across the world, including Ghanaians. Meanwhile these artistes do all sorts of crazy things and live all kinds of lifestyles. But the case is different when it involves an artiste from home.

“I don’t want such comments to disturb her ability to explore and grow in whatever she has chosen to do.” She said.

“I rather look at whatever is being said positively as a mother and guide her accordingly. We seem to be so excited about things when they are foreign but the moment it is local we all go gaga about it,” she added.

She further stated that she does sit her daughter down and talk to her. Adding that she knows the kind of upbringing she had.

“I am not saying I will allow her to walk around naked. My daughter knows the kind of upbringing she had and I sit her down to talk to her.

“I tell her let people appreciate your voice and other ability than to allow them to condemn you because of your outlook,” Nana Awindor said.

The Development Queen of Afigya-Kwabe District, Nana Adwoa Awindor believes her daughter deserves to be celebrated rather than condemned.

The much anticipated Girl Talk Concert finally came off on 27th December, 2017, at the National Theater-Accra.

Spearheaded by Jane Awindor, best known as Efya, the concert was indeed memorable one.

Efya took over the mantle three years ago from songstress Becca and had to hand over as per the rules of the organization after serving for three years.

This year’s concert, dubbed ‘The Bowout’ was sponsored by Vitamilk and organised by Palm Media.

Guests and patrons at the event were really thrilled with perfomances by the host, Efya and other artistes.

The soul songstress, really proved her versatility in music and talent in stage craft.

More On Efya’s Outfits

She left no stone unturned on the night as she announced to the world through her stage act that she is one of the few best performers in the country.

The multiple vocalist award winner did not only thrill her fans and guests with her performsnces but also looked good in four different dresses she appeared on stage in.

Each dress did not only compliment her looks but also highlighted on her performance.

The ‘Best In Me’ singer started the show with a Micheal Jackson look and later changed into Kente.

She went backstage and later appeared in a weeding gown then in jumpsuits and finally came to close the event with her last outfit.

Efya Charges GHC 95,000 For A Show?

The last episode of the popular Youtube entertainment program for 2017, “Celebrity Ride With Zionfelix ” came off with songstress Efya.

As it is, every artiste has a specific amount of money they charge before performing at a show.

After a lengthy conversation with Efya, born Jane Awindoor, it is assumed the songstress is taking something closer to Ghc 95,000 for one show and she is of the view that she deserves it.

She was very reluctant in revealing the specific amount though. However, she confirmed that it is not a soupçon of cash.

More On Efya’s Performance Charges

When asked if promoters who have less than the amount cannot book her for shows, she did not give a vivid answer but said: “God has been good”.

She went on to tell Zionfelix, host of the program why she would take around Gh95,000.

The “Getaway” hitmaker explained that she mostly performs live when she mounts the stage and that costs a lot. According to her, she mostly performs with eight or nine-piece band and it is not a joke to mount stage with that number.

Efya believes she has grown as an artist so should work in an extraordinary style to reach the legendary status.

The “Best In Me” singer further stated that she wants to release songs which can last for decades so that generations will listen to it and still feel it is a new song.

The Yaa Asantewaa Girls’ alumnus is set to host her last edition of Girl Talk concert.

She took over from Becca three years ago and has also served three years there. Hence the need for her to bow-out for another selected female artiste, from any part of Africa, not necessarily Ghana to take over.

Scheduled to happen live at the National Theater-Accra on December 27, 2017.
