I also have my own goals and obligations in the music industry - Efya which is why I don't perform with Wizkid on foreign stages

Following recent remarks from artiste management and entertainment analyst Bullgod questioning Ghanaian artists R2Bees and Efya’s connection with Nigerian music sensation Wizkid, Efya has resorted to Twitter to clarify the matter and provide insight on the complexities of playing on large platforms.

According to the ‘Best In Me’ singer, playing on international stages includes a variety of aspects that are not always obvious to the general audience. She also disclosed that schedule issues, prior commitments, and logistical restrictions made it difficult to accompany Wizkid to every single concert.

“When it comes to performing on big stages, there are various factors involved that people may not be aware of. Scheduling conflicts, prior commitments, and logistical constraints sometimes make it challenging to accompany Wizkid on every single performance. It doesn’t diminish my dedication or the fact that I have also played on countless international stages,” she tweeted.

She further explained,“As an artist, I have a multifaceted career that encompasses my own music, projects, and obligations. While I value my friendship and artistic connection with Wizkid, I also have my own aspirations and commitments in the music industry. It is essential to strike a balance and prioritize professional growth and individual endeavours.”

Efya also voiced her disappointment at being mocked by industry stakeholders and commentators based on misconceptions and assumptions.

“It is disheartening to be ridiculed based on misunderstandings and assumptions. I hope this thread provides clarity and sheds light on the intricacies of the music industry. Let us focus on celebrating each other’s achievements rather than perpetuating unnecessary controversies,” the neo-singer added.

While Bullgod’s worries were legitimate, Efya’s Twitter thread provided insight into the obstacles and considerations that artists like herself and R2Bees confront while managing their careers, particularly on the worldwide stage.

Meanwhile, Wizkid’s performance at Tottenham Stadium has received widespread praise, with publications hailing the afrobeat star’s exhilarating musical experience. The evening also included a performance by Ghana’s own King Promise, who wowed the audience.

“”A genius is someone who can drive a generation forward. And long after you’ve left. Can that generation continue to go forward?


That is why I believe he is a genius. I’ve been watching him for a very long time. “He has moved Africa forward,” he stated.
