Adina, Ghana’s sensational singer and songwriter, has opened up on her childhood dreams.
According to her, she once nurtured the dream of becoming a broadcaster and not a Singer as we know her to be.
In an interview on Springboard Virtual University with Albert Ocran, Adina Thembi Ndamse as he is officially known said she took a step toward working on her broadcasting dream by first attempting to enroll at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ).
The ‘Why’ hitmaker mentioned that her dream did not see the light of day as she was compelled to choose between a talent show she was participating in and a GIJ school interview to gain admission.
“Even though I always thought I was going to be a singer, I really admired broadcasting. My only attempt at that was going for the GIJ auditions. You know before you can go to GIJ you need to go through an examination period and then they interview you. I think what I went for was the exams but that was the time I was doing Stars of the Future and we really didn’t have time.”
She continued; “I estimated that by a certain time everything would be over but the people that showed up were so much and the queues. So I had to leave. I tried to ask permission from those who were ahead if it was possible that I have my interview? They were like why should we give you the opportunity and I said because I’m doing Stars of the Future. They were like it’s either you are coming to school or you’re not.”
“So, I was forced to choose between back at the house for rehearsals and just staying there and forfeiting the show. I had already started and I really love music so I left. So that was my only attempt,” Adina narrated.Read Full Story
