Francisca Gawugah, better known by her stage name Sista Afia, has revealed her traumatic past, telling how a broken heart led her into a mental health facility.
In a recent interview, Sista Afia made this revelation and related how she just learned about her boyfriend’s second marriage a few days later.
She said that it was a betrayal of her trust because she had put a lot of trust in her partner.
According to the Weather singer, she doesn’t trust men anymore.
Sista Afia disclosed that the ordeal from the unexpected betrayal caused her lots of mental stress and her inability to overcome the situation eventually landed her at the psychiatric hospital.
“I didn’t know he was getting married. I was blinded by love so I couldn’t see the signs. When I found out he had gotten married, I was heartbroken. And it took me a long time to get over it.
“I was even admitted at the psychiatric hospital because of how broken I was. It will take me a while to trust men again,” Sista Afia said.
Sista Afia announced her presence on the music scene in 2015 when she released her debut ‘Kro Kro No’ featuring Bisa Kdei.
However, she gained huge attention following the release of Jeje, which featured dancehall artiste Shatta Wale and Afezi Perry.
Among the number of nominations she has earned are VGMA Best Highlife Song of the Year (2019) and 3Music Awards Female Woman of the year in 2020.
