The host of the popular ‘Greetings from Abroad’ show stated that she believed that in a home of celebrities, it was necessary for one to “come down” for the other to take the shine.

She tells Rev. Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series: “In a house of celebrities, what you do is that you come down for the celebrity to grow. You don’t make it look like you are in competition. The moment Efya started, I mellowed the Nana Adwoa Awindor brand so she can come up and it was intentional. Until she got to her peak, then, I started working again”.

The proud mother of the musician stated that Efya’s singing ability is a God-given gift from childhood. “At age two, she was singing ‘happy birthday' for us. We would give her the Karaoke microphone and she would sing for us. She was good from birth. She was gifted. She didn’t learn how to sing,” she added.

Nana Adwoa Awindor and musician Efya have a close bond that is admired by many. In recent times, Efya has touted her mother as her greatest inspiration and best friend.


According to Efya, her mother’s advice has shaped her into the woman she is today.
