The “Makoma” hitmaker described her maiden album as a beautiful blend of emotions and melodies, easy on the ears and a body of work for everyone.

“You know that sort of package that everyone can walk away with their bit, I can’t wait for everyone to hear it and I pray it travels far and wide” she said.

Adina also got emotional telling Doreen about her childhood days revealing how her mum worked hard to take care of her and other siblings all by herself.

“I was saying to my manager that I feel like this song to anybody that is going through anything is a testament. I am a testament that, no matter how tough it gets you can actually come out of that crazy situation it is.”

“I mean look at me now, I’m not doing so bad for myself and I’m doing pretty well, looking at all that crazy stories and we here today,” she said.
