Afro beats singer, Sefa, has asked the media to focus on promoting positive Ghanaian creative arts news.
She said the attention given to negative news in the entertainment space contributed to Ghana’s failure to win any Black Entertainment (BET) Award.
“The media has to stop focusing on the irrelevant stuff and shift attention to the music; just as Nigerians are doing now…When you go to Nigeria, everything they talk about is music. It used to be movies, but now it is music, and that is how we can push our entertainers,” she noted.
The ‘E Choke’ hitmaker said she had gone through various personal development sessions to build her confidence in recent times.
“I didn’t use to feel confident in my body. I had some insecurities, but thankfully I have outgrown that,” she revealed.
The artiste, born Sefadzi Abena Amesu, said she begun embracing her body because of the many female fans that saw her as a role model.
“I noticed a lot more females look up to me, so I had to learn to embrace my body, and that has been it,” she said in an interview on UTV.
Sefa is a composer and performer signed to D Black’s Black Avenue Muzik label.
She graduated from Ola Girls Senior High School in Ho in 2014 and then went to Accra Technical University, where she earned a Diploma in Purchasing and Supply in 2017.
Her debut album, titled ‘Growth’, was released in November 2020 under the Black Avenue Muzik label. Bisa Kdei, Praiz, Fameye, Medikal, DopeNation, Sista Afia, Wendy Shay, Camidoh, and E.L. are among the artistes that contributed to the album.
Sefa has many hit singles under her belt, including ‘Memories’. ‘Playa’, ‘Odo yewu’, ‘Makoma’, ‘DELi’, ‘Wanti Wanti’,’ GECE’ and ‘E Choke’ which featured afrobeats musician Mr Drew.
