Adina admits Journey in Music Career has been Rough
In an earlier interview, Adina disclosed that her journey in her music career was saddled with several twists and turns. However, she disclosed that persistence, determination, and passion drove her to become a successful musician.
“When you are focused and know what you want, you will surely smile in the future. I believed in myself and I knew what I had; I knew I was going to make it even though the journey has not been smooth. When you have the right management and you keep doing the right kind of music, you will succeed”.Adina
Eulogizing her then manager, Kwame Farkye, Adina noted that he has been the backbone of her career. She recalled instances when a few record labels had some discussions to sign her, but she declined because they did not meet her standard.
“I have been with Kwame Farkye since 2012 and a lot has gone on under his NAM record. The next record label that wants to sign me should convince me enough to leave, which I don’t see happening soon. We have been through tough times and if things are fine today, I cannot just leave but remember the good things he has done for me”.Adina
