Ghanaian music star Efya has revealed that she has turned down offers to use black magic for success several times in her career.
Citing recent news about some children, boys, killing their grandparents for ritual money, “It’s a story that’s basically saying that try and control yourself so that you don’t sell your soul to the devil, because in this world of ours, there are many enticingly beautiful options but we do not have to do all of them,” Efya observed.
“Sometimes when you have to upgrade in life, you will meet [people] that will ask you to go do something, for instance, you may be asked to go take a ritual bath and other things when you go to the Mallam, or maybe mess over a friend,” Efya said.
The musician noted that there are many things that appear to be beautiful but one must not engage in them.
“There are many enticingly beautiful things but we do not have to do all of them. It’s a warning I am sending out to everyone – don’t sell your soul to the devil. There are many things that appear to be beautiful but you must not engage in them,” Efya stressed.
According to the “No More Tears” singer, she has been approached with conversations seeking to entice her to dabble in black magic for success, however, she did not give in.
“I always put it [the suggestion] down and just let them know that I know where my source is and my source does not ask me to go and do those things,” Unmoved, she said.
Noting that it is fashionable these days to use unethical spiritual means to gain success, “There are so many things you are at liberty to do but you do not actually have to,” she stressed.
Efya revealed that she is a Christian who worships with the Assemblies of God.
“I was born into the Presbyterian faith but my mother married from Assemblies of God so that’s where I am now,” she explained.
The multiple award-winning Soul, Jazz, and Highlife singer-songwriter’s latest offering is a 4-track extended play (EP) titled “No More Tears”. Unlike some of her previous pieces, she revealed all songs on the EP were penned by her.
