Joy Onyinyechukwu Adomaa Serwaa Adjeman, popularly known by Adomaa has said life has not been all rosy for her because at a point she attempted suicide as a result of career trauma.
She said she started having “panic attacks” in her early days as a musician.
“It was a traumatic period and I had to do therapy at a point,” the actress recalled. “Those were triggered every time anything to do with music came up. So I had to stop music.”
Accidental music career
Adomaa said moving into music was “very accidental, it was supposed to be for fun, but it became a career.”
“The buzz and how it was going it was skyrocketing basically. Immediately before I realised I had a team, and they were there to help push Adomaa. I hadn’t necessarily decided that this was what I wanted to do, it was one of the things I knew I wanted to do but prior to that I was trying to find what I wanted to do,” she said.
Quiet return to music
“I came back to music just last month,” the lead character in popular TV series Dede said. “I quitted music but I hadn’t come out to tell anyone. I was in a very dark place and a huge part of why I was in that dark place has to do with music. It almost felt like life and death.”
“I knew I wanted to act but that hadn’t worked out yet… It was so much going on and it felt like I might have been okay with it, if it was at my pace. It was like I had just learnt to walk and now I am being told to run.”
“Luckily, acting came up because I was trying to escape. I was trying to do something different. And I can’t say goodbye to music because it was the most fulfillment I had ever doing anythin
