Known for her soulful performances and her advocacy for mental wellness, Adomaa shared her personal experiences, shedding light on her journey and the challenges she faced along the way.
Adomaa revealed that during her time at Wesley Girls High School, she maintained a low profile hence her emergence in the limelight led to a surprise among her peers
“A lot of people didn’t even know I was in their school. I went to Wesley Girls High School. When I came out as an artist, a lot of people didn’t even know I went to Gey Hey. That’s how quiet I was in school. So it was a lot,” she shared
However, the sudden attention and overnight fame caught Adomaa off guard and affected here mental health which left her feeling overwhelmed and struggling to catch up.
She recounted, “And I feel like not being ready. I had a lot of people around me because, honestly, as a musician like you, who doesn’t want to have their music blow up, who doesn’t want a lot of people to hear them? It’s not like I didn’t want it. I didn’t know it was happening exactly. So I just felt like I was behind and everybody things were happening really fast.It felt like an overnight thing. I’m here and then all of a sudden people know you”
While Adomaa acknowledged the presence of an incredible support system around her, she revealed that she had her own struggles with communication during this period, often lashing out at her loved ones without reason.
“I had an amazing support system, but you have to be there. People can’t want it for you. Do you understand? So at a point, I didn’t know how to communicate with them, so I used to lash out at them a lot for no reason,” she opened up
Adomaa also admitted that she even resorted to acts of violence, throwing objects and engaging in heated arguments.
“And I’m not proud, but I actually got violent. I know I might not look like a very violent person, but I used to throw things at people. Screaming was from zero to 100 for stupid, stupid, stupid things. And at that point, I had a fight with one of my managers and I threw a glass cover at him. Thankfully, he dodged it,” she said.
By sharing her story and discussing her personal growth, Adomaa was able to cover an important message on mental health to the housemates especially as they find themselves in a reality house and on the verge of fame.
Adoma also congratulated them on the food describing it as ‘nice’, Flash got a second plate and Kodark emptied his plate at the end of their special lunch.
