I Love The Colour Black Because I’m A Witch – Efya

Ghanaian Vocalist and songwriter, government name Jane Fara Fauzzier Afia Boafowaa Yahaya Awindor known in showbiz space as Efya has disclosed the rationale behind her attraction to the black colour.

She said she likes the colour because she is a “witch”.

But as she proceeded by expatiating her point, the singer gave credit for it to the kind of work she does which is music. She noted that she records at night when everyone is asleep thus making her stay active at night.

On the back of this development has grown her interest in black as darkness has become a companion at night.

Appearing on Accra-based entertainment channel, Joy Prime, the “Best In Me” hitmaker told host Doreen Avio, “I feel like it blends with every other colour. I think black is something that fits most of the time. Also, I like it because I’m a witch.”

Efya also noted that she added Nokturnal to her name on her Twitter handle because she is always awake at night.

According to her, “I don’t sleep at night and it’s been like that for a very long time. So, I figured I might as well make it cool because I’m a very Nokturnal being and I come alive at night. Most of the time I like to work late at night because it’s quiet.”

Asked if she will wear black on her wedding day, the ‘Ankwadobi’ hitmaker said, “Yes, it’s one of the things I’ve always wanted to do but I’m not sure anymore. We’ll see.”

The crooner further disclosed that she has always desired to emulate his daddy and become a film director which never transpired.

But the host Doreen Avio asked a followed up question about did Efya land herself in music.

The multiple VGMA Best Female Vocalist of the Year uttered that her music career commenced after she took part in Stars of the Future, as she has always been piping in church and passionate about music.

As the daughter of filmmaker and celebrity host of the TV show ‘Greetings from Abroad,’ Nana Adwoa Awindor, the vocalist described how she suffered while growing up with a well-known mom.

“It was very stressful. There was a lot of pressure. I got beaten up because of my mom when I got to secondary school,” Efya described.

Meanwhile, having lived with prominent and skilled parents gave her some experience in the creative enterprise at an early age including video editing, directing and animation.

Her parents have played a pivotal role in moulding her to become versatile throughout the establishment of her career and field of endeavour.

However, deeming the brouhahas in showbiz, the crooner uttered that she is not worried about negativity as it comes with the character of her work.
