My name is Edna Arthur born and raised in Odorkor a district in Accra Ghana. I discovered my talent when I was 14 years old and at age 16, I decided that I would want to be a musician. So since then I’ve been hustling to make it in my music career.
I had a tough childhood cos I lost my mum and dad when I was 13 years old.
I was taken to my auntie to take care of me but rather I was maltreated and made to do chores a child at my age shouldn’t have.
My sleeping place was the kitchen. I was starved and my cousins were given food and everything they needed. My cousins made fun of me that made me loose my self esteem, but music was my go to, because whenever I was alone I do script poems and songs.
I’m a junior high school graduate because I didn’t get anyone, not even a family member to help finance my education to senior high school even tho I was the 4th highest in my school and got a good secondary school to attend.
A day came when my auntie packed my stuff out of the house cos she said she can’t take care of me, I became homeless but the streets of Adabraka became my new home. So I began working as a security guard to being a cleaner in a restaurants, and hotels so I can save money to book studio for my music records and to take care of myself .
I was going through a lot struggle, but my hope was my Music, I went to talent shows, amongst others to get myself on top but nothing worked and the people who saw potential in my music always demanded sex before they help me, and since I don’t want to sucum to that I’ve been struggling trynna make it as a female artiste.
It’s been 13 years now doing music and believe everything I’ve been through will be a testimony so I embrace it and I pray one day I inspire others.
I have passion for social work and also help kids and families in my community with the little I have because of my background.
I have my own NGO called Fertile ground dream foundation and I am doing my best and hoping my music becomes successful so I could be able to do more.
After 13 years I now have my debut album called “ready for the world” and thanks to C.B.M.E my label that spotted me in 2018 and since then they have given me the right to create any kind of music I want and have provided me with good studios to record , good directors to shoot my videos and for that I’m thankful.
The album is set to drop in the later part of October, 2020 on all music streaming platgorms.
I want everyone to get this album cos it’s an album that showcases how versatile I can be in terms of creating music, and I had a lot of great memories making this debut album because it made me reflect on how far I’ve come from sleeping on the streets to being denied a lot of good things that would have made life easy but I regret nothing because this my life, God planned it.
I share my story through my Hit single Sacrifices and Burdens which basically talks about my pain and all the things I’ve been through. I pray Ghana and Africa sees my Gift and help support it to shine for Gods glory to be magnified. love Edna FG🙏🏾
