I’m Not Getting The Support I Need- Sista Afia Bemoans

Jeje hitmaker Sista Afia has bemoaned the lack of support for her craft despite her incredible work rate.

The Ghanaian singer who specialises in Highlife and Afrobeat genres claims that the lack of industry support is preventing her from moving forward in her profession while speaking in an interview on 3Music TV.

Afia revealed the bureaucracy in the music industry and said if one is not connected to the so-called gatekeepers of the industry, it becomes difficult to sustain one’s relevance. She noted thus;

“I feel like I have not had the support as much and God is my witness. I’ve done what I have to do as an individual artist. I record my songs. I have a studio in my house. I’ve been recording my songs since JEJE and I’ve been doing it till now. Not because I want people to see what I’m doing but I’m happy doing what I’m doing. The support for me hasn’t been great.

The fans love me but the ones to hold you and take you to places. Sometimes I’m sidelined as well. I hear people talk about me. Sometimes they will request me on a show and someone will be like why are you putting her on put this one instead. It’s about who you know.”

The JEJE hitmaker also mentioned how having a personal relationship with God has been extremely helpful to her.

“I found God not now. My strength, everything that I do, every song that I bring out it’s only God that makes that happen. Do you know why? Because the stress that you would go through. I didn’t even think that I was going to release a song this year. I told myself I was going to do my private event and move on with my life. But how it just happened then I found out and said God wants me to do this thing. Everything that I’ve done, every video that I’ve shot, every promotion that I’ve done, every hit song I get I don’t deserve it but God gives it to me.”

The songstress recently released her first single for the year 2023, which she calls “Carry Go.” Listen here.
