Rising singer, Euphemia Ekumah, aka Goodgirl LA, says she is focused on being the best version of herself and not in competition with any other artiste. She told Sunday Scoop, “I don’t intend to compete with anyone.  I believe there is no life that is better than mine. I am just here to do me and show the world what I have. I don’t like to limit myself or  compete with anyone, when I could be greater.”

Speaking on the inspiration behind her new song, Bando, LA said, “It was inspired by young Nigerians because they are the classic definition of rebellion. A case in point is the #EndSARS protests where youths trooped out en-masse to demand for change in the country. Young Nigerians make things happen even when they don’t have opportunities. Also, I see myself as a seed that cannot be buried. If anybody tries to put me down, I would rather geminate and grow even stronger. I am a very resilient person.”

The fair-skinned singer also stated that she planned to release an Extended Play album in the coming months and urged her fans to expect ‘raw energy’ and great music from her. She added, “2020 was a lot and I just want people to be happy. I want to bring positive vibes to the table. I also plan to do a lot of collaborations, especially with female artistes, so there is a lot to look forward to.

Revealing the story behind her moniker, she said, “My brand name was initially Ladern but my classmates in secondary school usually shortened it to ‘LA’. When I wanted go into the music business fully, I knew that I had to ‘own’ the name, so I added ‘good girl’ to it.

“The name ‘good girl’ is also like a rebellion because from a young age in Africa, girls are always told to be good. But what are the standards that determine if one is a good girl or not?”

On how her relationship with Soundcore Media Limited, owned by music enthusiast and businessman, Tony Nwakalor, came to be, the singer said, “I had been a friend of the house for some time. Everything just happened at the right time. They were ready to get into business and I was also ready to make certain moves. It was a case of perfect timing.”
