Efya has been awarded Best Female Vocalist at the Ghana Entertainment Awards 2017 which held at the Florence Gould Hall in New York.
The maiden event awarded outstanding personalities in sports, music, film, radio and TV.
The Ghanaian neo-soul singer was presented the award at the prestigious SOBs in New York getting a lot of praise from fellow Ghanaians.
Writing on an Instagram post, Efya expressed gratitude for her award assuring her fans of being willing and able to make proud saying “Thank you for my award”.
A special highlight of the night was when Efya took to the stage to perform an array of her songs from her early career days as well as songs off her debut LP album “Janesis” released in 2015.
The night also saw performances from BP (Bright formerly of Buk Bak and Promzy formerly of VIP) and rapper E.L.
Efya was a huge contributor to Wizkid’s ‘Daddy yo’ released late 2016. Her catchy hook made the song just as appealing as Wizkid’s verses.
“It’s always a pleasure to be appreciated. But the greatest joy is seeing my brothers and sisters win with me. So I want to congratulate everyone who came out and won something, on the night,” Efya remarked.
