Award-winning Ghanaian songstress Efya delivers her wonderfully melodic new single ‘Mamee’, featuring Afrobeats artist Mr Eazi – and you can listen to it now on the Fantasy Premier League playlist.
‘Mamee’ is an upbeat, summery production, which flaunts Efya’s soulful vocal performance, alongside Mr Eazi’s smooth rap abilities, plus samples the infectious chorus from Mariah Carey & Busta Rhymes’ 2003 hit single, ‘I Know What You Want‘.
‘Mamee’ marks the second time the duo have joined forces. The ‘Leg Over’ hitmaker enlisted her to sing on his 2016 single, ‘Skintight’, which has surpassed 17 million plays on Spotify alone.
Efya began her singing career like most, in the church choir, before performing under the moniker ‘Miss Jane‘. She later reinvented herself under her current name and, in 2013, released her mixtape ‘This Is Not The Album’ which was acclaimed by fans and critics alike.
‘This Is Not The Album’ features her incredibly powerful and euphoric ballad ‘Best In Me‘. The track won the Ghanaian singer ‘Record of The Year’ and ‘Best Female Vocalist’ at the Ghana Music Awards.
In total, Efya has achieved the ‘Best Female Vocalist’ award five times consecutively. Not stopping there, adding to her astounding success in her native Ghana, she was nominated five times at the World Music Awards.
