Born Jane Efya Awindor, She jumped onto the Ghanaian music scene in 2008 when she made it as one the finalists of the music reality show “Stars of the Future “.
The extraordinary talent display of Efya has led to her getting featured on international networks and performing on some of the biggest stages in Africa and beyond.
In a recent interview on LOUD IN GH with Ike Frimpong on Saturday, Efya shared the story and idea behind her Debut studio Album “JANESIS” which was launched a few weeks ago.
“JANESIS is basically my first Album, even though I have put out a lot of music over the years, we eventually decided on the compilation so we put out the first one which was THIS IS NOT THE ALBUM (T.I.N.T) and now we have the Album”.
For such a successful singer like Efya, one would assume should have one or more Albums to her name. But according to the songstress, the delay in putting out an album was just a move to make sure the time was right to present her fans with the Album.
“We just wanted to it right, we had lots of songs out, and a mix tape out. It’s just about the right time for it” she added.
The Album which features award winning artists like Sarkodie, El, stonebwoy, Bisa K dei, Nigeria’s Ice Prince , has about 22 tracks and was produced by some amazing engineers like legendary beats and Kill beatz. The whole recording of the Album according to Efya lasted for a period of 4 years.
Speaking on her incredible telepathy with one of the biggest talents in Africa, Sarkodie, Efya outlined that they had been friends for quite a long while “I have known Sarkodie for a while ,can’t really remember ” she added
Following the big announcement made by Nigeria’s sensational artist and CEO of Starboy records, WizKid, on signing the singer and other artists such as Mr Eazi and R2bees, most Ghanaians were still in obscurity as to whether Efya had parted ways with her old record label. But Efya threw more light on the interpretation of the entire contract.
“It’s a collaboration between my record label which is one nation and Starboy Records. We came together to work together as a team .Which means more exposure, more shows and more music” she explained.
Efya’s also disclosed that there were a couple of unreleased singles with Sarkodie and other artists. She is also planning on embarking on a nationwide tour with her whole crew. The date for the tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
JANESIS is also Available on Tidal,Spotify ITunes and Deezer.
