Interview:

Who is S3nti?

S3nti is a live performer, songwriter, vocalist and an emerging artiste. She’s a 25-year-old with resilient energy and describes her vocal instrument as a GYATABAA which means lioness. Exuding a true sense of an African woman. S3nti’s music is described as Afro-fusion (which is a combination of Ghanaian highlife, Afrobeats and Rnb).

Her music speaks on love, relationships, women empowerment,and God.

What inspires you to do music?

 Music makes me happy and I have always loved it since I was a child. My career plan was not to be a musician but to be a medical practitioner. Music just found me. I think what inspires me greatly is the urge and zeal to tell my story to the world, to empower young girls and also the satisfaction of seeing someone enjoy me sing

How did you come by your name?

My full name is Abena Serwaah Eno S3nti Frempong. 

I was named after my father’s mother and so “S3nti” is my real name. It means “that’s why” in the Ghanaian language Twi.

How does it feel to be a live artist?

It is the best feeling in the world. I started in 2017 combining it with school which wasn’t easy. But I learnt on the job, and I am here now as a professional. It feels good seeing people dance and sing and feel entertained by you. It makes me feel happy even though the songs aren’t my originals. Being a live performer isn’t very easy, you have to be vocally good, swift and energetic. But with constant practice it becomes very easy

What should people expect?

A lot of amazing works. The ideas are so many but as an independent act, it isn’t very easy. I’m a very consistent, goal-oriented and a bit of a perfectionist so they would definitely get the very best.

But I would need their help to be able to also give my best so they should stream the songs, share, like and comment on videos and follow all handles. It goes a long way.
