Ghanaian singer, Efya has responded to claims that she and R2bees often spend quality time with Wizkid whenever he is in Ghana, but are always absent during his international performances.
The issue arose when Bullgod, an artist manager, expressed concern over not seeing Efya and R2bees on stage with Wizkid during his recent show at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, despite their close bond with the Nigerian musician.
Bullgod, owner of Bullhaus Entertainment, couldn’t understand why the Ghanaian acts, who often spend quality time with Wizkid when he visits Ghana, were not present on the international stage alongside him.
“So R2Bees and Efya will smoke, drink and chill with Wizkid anytime he’s in Ghana but can’t join him on international stages and showcase their talents to the world? Again Ghana missed out on national duties at the 62,850 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, yesterday. What is wrong with us?” Bullgod shared on Facebook.
The post sparked discussions on radio and television entertainment talk shows, as people questioned the absence of the Ghanaian musicians.
In response to the conversation, Efya took to Twitter to clarify the complexities of musicians’ schedules and commitments. She explained that several factors, including conflicting schedules, prior commitments, and logistical constraints, can make it challenging to join Wizkid on every international performance.
“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.
Efya emphasized that these challenges don’t diminish her dedication or the fact that she has performed on numerous international stages before.
