I'm sick of being a 'local artiste' - Adina Thembi cries


Reigning Vodafone Ghana Music Awards [VGMA] 'Female Vocalist of the Year', Adina Thembi has expressed concern over her brand lacking international recognition.

Speaking in an interview on Happy FM the beautiful singer who feels there's no competition in the music industry for her stated emphatically that she's not interested in receiving mere plaques rather to reach higher heights.

"I feel like there is no real competition if I’m just getting the same thing over and over again. My challenge is to reach higher heights. To be honest with you, when I say I’m targeting higher heights, I’m not talking about plaques or awards because that is really an icing. it’s just for Ghana and based on the work you have done. It is not my goal, because that is not what makes me a musician. there are other aspects of the job”

However, she said already she's in talks with her management to embark on a nationwide tour to promote her music

" was discussing with my manager earlier today that hitting in just Accra isn’t the whole of Ghana. There are other parts of the country, there are people who have heard of you and they want to see you. My goal is to reach all those corners so if in the process of reaching out to my fans, my hard work is recognized and they decide to give me an award again for it, I’ll appreciate it and say thank you.”

Her comment comes after two top notch Ghanaian artistes were snubbed whiles performing during the launch of Zylofon Media and MenzGold Ghana Limited in Nigeria.

Adina Thembi Ndamse better known by her stage name Adina is a Ghanaian-South African singer, songwriter, actress and sometimes a model. She was the winner of music reality show Stars of the Future in 2008. Her eighth music single titled "Too Late" won her two awards - Record of the Year and Best Female Vocalist of the Year at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in Ghana.
