Courtney Kemp Reveals Effie Morales’ Backstory Will Take Place In Season 3 of Power Book II: Ghost


Power Book II: Ghost is really starting to spotlight Effie Morales, who is first introduced to Tariq St. Patrick and Brayden Weston during their high school years at Choate. They brought her into their amateur drug business before they tried to put her out of business. In retaliation, Effie exposed the guys, had them thrown out, and took control of the company for herself.

Fast forward a couple of years, the trio is now in business together in college. If you read her character description on, it states that she is “a Yale student no stranger to drama.”

” Effie’s quest to financial freedom via drug dealing leads her to big competition — her former Choate classmates, Tariq and Brayden. But when Effie decides to join forces with Tariq and Brayden again, she will be forced to determine where her loyalties lie — with herself and herself only, or with people who have shown their true colors time and time again.”

The Creator of Power Book II: Ghost was on Instagram Live last week when he revealed when a fan would get the backstory on Effie.

“Yes, you will, but that’s season three, that’s not going to come this season, said Kemp.

“I know I’m not supposed to tell people that, but I kind of like for you guys to know what to expect. And if you are exactly expecting to see a lot of Effie backstory this season, it is not coming. It is coming for next year.”

In 2020, Kemp shared that “Effie’s mom is a mess. But I’ll tell you about that later,” Kemp revealed in a 2020 Instagram Live. “And if you guys remember, close readers of the series, Effie’s brother is dead. He was murdered, so keep that in mind.”

As of right now, she is the middle man when it comes to Tariq and the Tejada’s. Since Tariq is on trial for a double murder and has an ankle monitor that tracks his every move.
