Award winning singer, Efya has been honoured with the ‘Special Recognition Award’ at the African Youth Awards (AYA) over the weekend.
The award is a youth award to honour young Africans who project the future of Africa to the world.
AYC is a prestige award scheme with the prime aim of appreciating the works of young Africans in Africa and the Diaspora.
Launched in 2014, the awards scheme was inspired by the lack of recognition for young Africans who have selflessly dedicated their lives to making sure the future of Africa is optimistic.
Efya began her career through wining stars of the future where she formed a collaboration with Irene Logan under the name Irene and Jane. She later went solo using Efya.
