The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and The Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) presents a touching female all-star tribute titled “Nana Hemaa” featuring her colleagues Adina, MzVee, Efya, Freda Rhymz, eShun, Feli Nuna and Adomaa. Peep the visuals, and download the heartfelt song below.
Adomaa, born Joy Onyinyechukwu Adomaa Serwaa Adjeman in Kaduna to a Ghanaian father and Nigerian mother, is a sensational singer who has used her unique voice and genre to take the nation of Ghana by storm.
Her venture into music started in 2015 with two mashups (a cover of a combination of songs), “The Evolution of GH Music” – which is a musical history lesson where she covered a wide array of classic songs in Ghanaian music, and a mashup of Stonebwoy’s “Baafira” and Sarkodie’s “Adonai”. Both mashups happened to go viral, launching her into the public eye, and she hasn’t looked back ever since.
Since then, she released her debut EP called AFRABA the EP, and went on to do a string of singles and features that have kept her in the hearts and minds of the fans of her unique sound.
Adomaa and her art fronts a fresh and unique take on artistry in the Ghanaian music scene that is only encountered once in a blue moon, and it’s evident in every song. Her unique blend of jazz, soul, and afrobeat/afro-pop (in combination, afro-jazz) sets her apart from every other, and add to it her light but sultry voice, you get this vintage yet urban vibe that takes you to places you thought never existed.
We at NotJustOk.com sat down with Adomaa to get a better look into her life and music, to find out what makes her tick, and why her music is so special.
VGMA Unsung Artiste winner Adomaa releases her much-anticipated first single since winning the award with the release of her 6-track EP Afraba in January. #Y3nkor is Adomaa’s anthem for all young people doing something worthwhile with their gifts despite the odds. It is a catchy up tempo afro jazz tune that is sure to empower many and encourage them to forget the status quo and make a difference. Talented Nigerian producer Odunsi ‘The Engine’ produces this fiery track, aided by Afraba EP producer Reynolds ‘TheGentleMan.’
