Musician Sista Afia says she is no longer interested in engaging in a lyrical feud with any of her colleagues in the industry.
According to her, she is not ready to indulge anyone who wants her attention through beefs despite the advantages it may come with.
Speaking in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Sista Afia said “I don’t think I will ever do it again, although beefing is sometimes good because it gets people talking about you, I don’t think I will indulge in it ever again.”
She added that “right now, I would sit back and rather observe those engaged in beefs but to get me to do it with anyone in industry, that is not going to happen. I am done, I mean zero indulgence for me. I don’t think I will ever do that again.”
In 2020, Sista Afia was involved in a two-week-long feud with colleagues Freda Rhymz and Eno Barony.
Sista Afia ignited a lot of controversy after the release of her song ‘WMT’ which many had said threw jabs at some female artistes.
The song was met with counter jabs and reactions from Freda Rhymz who released ‘KMT’, and Eno replying with ‘Rap Goddess’.
Sista Afia released ‘You Got Nerves’ which prompted Eno to also drop ‘Argument Done’. Freda Rhymz, who didn’t want to be left out of the beef party, also released ‘Point of Correction’.
But this lyrical feud nearly turned physical when Sista Afia met Freda Rhymz in person. The artistes, in a viral video, were about to throw punches at each other at the premises a media house had it not been for the intervention of the crew.
Later, Sista Afia apologised to Freda Rhymz and her fans. According to the Queen Solomon, she did not understand nor agree with some things the rapper had said in her songs during the feud and reacted in a “bad” way.
“I don’t want to go back and forth with you ever again. This is sad, this is bad…so I really want to reach out to you and say I am sorry, I love you and I might not understand your beefing thing but I love you,” Sista Afia told Freda Rhymz on UTV’s United Showbiz.
The ‘WMT’ hitmaker said that following the confrontation that went viral she hated seeing herself being angry on TV.
Meanwhile, Sista Afia says she is focused on her career and campaigning for more support for female artistes.
“The support for female musicians is better than before. The radio presenters are playing our songs and the TV stations are always calling us for interviews, and that is good.
“But we need to start supporting each other just like I have been doing for my female colleagues. I am always posting works of other female musicians as a way of supporting my own” she said.
Sista Afia has also released a new single called ‘Makwe’.
