- Musician Adina has revealed that she was surprised to pick up an award of the 2018 VGMAs
- The singer was adjudged the ‘Best Female Vocalist of 2017’ at the 2018 VGMAs
Ghanaian songstress, Adina has revealed that she was surprised to have won the Best Female Vocalist Award at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) which was held in April at the Accra International Conference Center in Accra.
Speaking in an interview with Kojo Akoto Boateng on Citi TV’s ‘Saturday Live’ show, she said even though she won the same award last year, she was not expecting another win in the same category.
“I was surprised when I won the female vocalist award, not because I didn’t think I deserved it but because of the names on the list,” the ‘Makoma’ hit maker disclosed.
“Last year, I also won the same award. So last year was like ‘Oh my goodness, really?’. But this year it was like ok, all the people on the list were also working hard, I saw them…so it was encouraging to be picked among the lot on the list,” she added.
When asked if the award put any pressure on her, she noted that it motivates her to do better.
“I feel like I have a responsibility not to let vocalists in Ghana down, but I am working on it to make sure I become a better version of myself any time,” she added.
Other artistes who were nominated in the Best Female Vocalist of the Year category in the 2018 VGMA were Nana Yaa, Efya, Mzvee and Becca.
