My role in ‘Dede’ TV series shows my versatility – Adomaa
Afro-Jazz singer, Adomaa, is expected to drop a new song, as she explains she hasn’t pulled the brakes on her music career.
Born Joy Adomaa Serwaa Adjeman, the singer said her love for music began at a tender age, and she has no plans of quitting.
“I accept that it’s been a while, but I have not stopped making music. I’m still into music and presently working on a project which I am hoping to bring out this year,” she revealed.
Adomaa is the lead character in the television series ‘Dede’, a change that has fuelled rumours that she has left the music industry.
“Music and acting are jobs in the entertainment industry even though they have their own pros and cons. However, if others have been successful with the two, then I can also do it,” she said.
She made her debut in music in 2016 with a terrific mash-up of Stonebwoy’s Baafira as well as EPs Afraba and Adomaa vrs Adomaa.
Explaining how she landed a role in the TV series, the singer said she did a monologue for an Africa Magic movie during the lockdown last year, and her performance gave her a chance to feature in Dede when she went for the audition.
“I have not done many auditions, so I was nervous, especially meeting Shirley Frimpong Manso, who I admire so much. I channelled my nervousness into performance, and I’m happy I didn’t look down on myself but gave it my best shot,” she told Graphic Showbiz.
The songwriter is vying for the Record of the Year at this year’s VGMAs with ‘Be Your Own Beautiful’.
She is up against Adina, Amaarae, Cina Soul, Epixode, Trigmatic, Worlasi, and Yaa Yaa.
