Veteran Television Presenter, Nana Adwoa Awindor, has said she had to give up her celebrity role for her daughter and songstress, Efya to shine in the media space.
According to the host of the popular ‘Greetings from Abroad’ show, at the time when Efya was in the shadows after ‘Stars of the future’ reality show, she thought it wise to lay her role as a celebrity down for her daughter to take over.
The host 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,”
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.
