Ghanaian rap sensation, Freda Baffour Awuah, otherwise known as Freda Rhymz has detailed reasons why she has been out of the music scene for close to two years.
According to the ‘Public Opinion’ hitmaker, her absence from the music scene was never a deliberate decision, however, it was a strategic move that prompted several issues, particularly disputes with her former record label.
The 2017 MTN Hitmaker Competition winner, known for her dynamic presence and lyrical prowess, stated that she has never thought of quitting music as some people may have perceived.
Stresing that the decision to go into hiding was a deliberate step in fighting for her creative freedom and addressing issues within her contractual obligations.
Freda revealed this during an exclusive interview with Fiifi Pratt on Accra-based Kingdom FM.
”It wasn’t a deliberate decision to go into hiding. It was just Life, you know. Life happened and you know at that time, I had a lot of bars around me after the beef and all that, so it wasn’t deliberate. I went into hiding because I was fighting my label over a couple of things. Things weren’t going the way it was supposed to go, so I had to leave, ” she said.
Freda was well-known throughout the rap community. But then, one day, out of the blue, she involved herself in a beef triangle with singer Sista Efia and rapper Eno Barony.
That nearly resulted in a physical fight when Sista Afia and Freda Rhymz coincidentally met at TV3 premises.
