Efya

Bio

Jane Fara Fauzzier Afia Awindor, who performs under the mononym "Efya", is a Ghanaian singer/songwriter and four-time Ghana Music Awards Best Female Vocalist, (she won the award twice in 2013 when the Maiden edition of the Europe Ghana Music Awards took place).

During this period Efya, almost singlehandedly, amassed a small following before signing with One Nation Entertainment in 2011, which took her efforts to new heights. Efya has played countless gigs all over West Africa and beyond, averaging 5 appearances a month. Performing and collaborating with artists from all over the world, Efya's following has grown by leaps and bounds, both locally and internationally. Her accolades just like her fans come from all over the world as well.

Efya, is presently putting the finishing touches on her highly anticipated debut studio album, slated for a 2013 release. A lifetime in the making, the album, titled "Love Genesis": is a cleverly crafted body of work with breathtaking diversity, which delves into the topic of love in a simple, yet, never-before-heard, way. The album’s sound spans a myriad of melodies, from emotionally taut power ballads, to laid back odes to heartbreak. Every single song on her debut has potential to be a favorite.

With an all-star cast of collaborations and production from the likes of legendary multiplatinum producer, John Bido, the sky is hardly a limit for Efya.

She began her singing career like most, in the church choir, but prior to this, Efya had dreams of a future in filmmaking. Wanting to follow in the footsteps of her mother, Nana Hemaa Adjoa Awindor, a filmmaker who became a celebrity in her own right, as the host of a popular late 90s Ghanaian TV Show, "Greetings From Abroad".
