One of the objectives of the “Girl Talk” concert is to spread itself across Africa by partnering various women musicians in their respective countries to create a World’s first African brand while sharing with them the opportunities that come with this great idea.
For the past years Becca has constantly been the face behind this Girl Talk Show but this concept has been grounded with diversity, so this year, a new face has been designed for the Girl Talk show headlining popular singer, Efya.
The reason for this change is to cement the fact that, Girl Talk, and all it comes with, belongs to all women of aspiration and inspiration.
Since bursting on the Ghanaian music scene some six (6) years ago with 2 evergreen singles-A MOMENT’S NOTICE (Odo Y3 D3) and NOTHING (after going solo)-the Afro Pop/Soul songstress EFYA (Jane Awindor) has carved a formidable niche for herself. The 27 year old has assumed a cult-figure status in the eyes of many music fans.
With strings of chart topping singles as a testament to her talent, she keeps growing, pushing and incessantly enchanting almost everyone who has come into close proximity with her music. EFYA’s music, like a whirlwind, swallows the listeners up and seduces their senses, leaving in its wake a tingling sensation of satisfaction. She is yet to drop a piece of ‘junk’ on us in her short career.
The extraordinary talent and sophisticated quality exuded by EFYA has led to her getting featured on international networks and performing on some of the biggest stages in Africa. She was among Ghanaian artistes featured on BBC’S GLOBAL BEATS show.
EFYA’s talent has been recognized and rewarded both in Ghana and outside. She scooped the Best Ghanaian Female Musician at the recent City and Peoples Entertainment Awards. In Ghana, she has won the Best Female Vocalist Award on four consecutive times at the Ghana Music Awards.
Anybody who has followed the career trajectory of the LITTLE THINGS singer will realize that the versatile songstress is in a league of her own. Her unrivalled talent, achievements and status is underpinned by the fact that she, EFYA is her own competitor.
From her riveting performances- no matter the size of stage and audiences, down to her songs-solo or featured-she never disappoints. She is constantly out-performing herself. And in a space where there seem to be no one snapping at her heels, seeing herself as her real opponent is the best way to go.
The Efya Girl Talk concert is slated for 18th December at the National Theatre. Tickets are going for a cool GHc70 regular and GHc130 VIP at Airport Shell, Live919.9FM, Surfline offices in Accra, Palm Media Office around Nima Police Station, and a free delivery to any location from Tonaton.
