Powerful singer, Efya, appears to have what she expects to do with her music career all laid out by her. ?I want to be a legend?, she revealed to Showbiz last week.

?I would want to be remembered not just as a female musician who rocked the Ghana music scene for a while but as one who came, made a difference and left a legacy?

The Best In Me hit maker, who has been the toast of many audiences for her great voice, artistic performances and bold stage presence, said that whatever modest success she has achieved has been the result of hard work and regular practice.

?When I get on stage, the only thing that I have on my mind is to see my fans happy after my performance. It is not about me anymore but my fans who want to get the best out of me.

?As a musician, they are the reason I hit that stage so I don?t have to disappoint them but ensure they are full to the brim. That has been my secret and it has come along with rehearsals over the years.

?Any musician who performs to the satisfaction of the fans knows because you could tell from their faces. For me, I feel ?gingam? when my audiences applaud my performance because that tells me that I have nailed it. If not why am I a performer?? she asked.

Like many great singers, Efya had a feel of a future star when she was a member of her church choir but she had her first public exposure when she participated in the maiden edition of Stars of the Future talent show.

But now, she has hit big stages both home and abroad notable among them is her sterling performance at the African Magic Viewers Choice held in Nigeria earlier this year which earned her remarkable comments.

Efya may be enjoying all the praises for being a good singer and performer but she is definitely not pleased with allegations about her involvement with drug use.

?I don?t know where all these allegations come from. Anytime, one works hard to get recognition and success, it is alluded to negativity and I sometimes wonder if people cannot use positive means to get success,? she said.

She told Showbiz that she cared less about such allegations because they made her stronger and only gave her an indication that she is doing something right.

?Maybe, people are overwhelmed by my impact in the industry within this relatively short period. It didn?t come on a silver platter. I worked hard and I see no reason why I should allow people?s perception and what they think to define me. Nobody knows me better than myself so I don?t have to drum it into people?s ears that I don?t do drugs?.

Currently, she is working on the release of her solo debut album, Love Genesis after the release of Unveiled which she did together with Irene Logan back in 2009.
