Ghana/Nigeria. 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 this recent video combine words from English, Pidgin, Twi and Yoruba.
But in fact, “Traffic Jam!” is a very direct and enjoyable song. You’ll admire the first time you hear it, and then keep it on repeat, even if only your head.
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.
From other good news, just two weeks ago Adomaa released her new, 41-minute EP, called “Afraba”, and you can stream it “right now“.
