A vivacious, eclectic, and daring Afro-soul musician with a plethora of possibilities, Maame Esi Essilfie, known colloquially as Essilfie, is a singer, songwriter, performer, voice-over artist, and all-around creative from Ghana.
Despite being a fan of artists like Sade, Erykah Badu, Asa, Sabrino Claudio, Snoh Aalegra, and Jill Scott, the budding songbird’s broad musical taste was fostered by her energetic parents, who adored music in all genres, from country to funk to reggae to highlife.
Essilfie released her debut song “Gye Wani” in 2019 to kick-start her career, and she has since issued a number of hits before releasing her first project, her debut EP “Tori’s Lounge,” on March 10, 2022. Tori’s Lounge is a five-track EP from the sultry-voiced rising talent packed with heartfelt R&B, soul, and Afrobeats tunes.
A gem and a legend in the making, Essilfie’s unique oeuvre is positioning her as a preeminent multifaceted Ghanaian of her time.
