Everything seems complicated about Adomaa. Her origin is half-Ghaian and half-Nigerian. Her full name is Joy Onyinyechukwu Adomaa Serwaa Adjeman. And the lyrics of her songs combine words from English, Pidgin, Twi and Yoruba.

But her music, as you’ll quickly discover listening to the new 41-minute EP called “Afraba”, is very direct and enjoyable. You’ll admire the first time you hear it, and then keep it on repeat.

The EP was preceded by a superb single called “Traffic Jam”. You can clearly hear Adomaa enjoyed working on this track, as a positive message (“appreciation for the simple things of life”) is enclosed not only in what she sings, but how she sings it.
