The current Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year, Diana Hamilton, has for the first time spoken about the inspiration behind her popular hit song, Adom.
While speaking in an exclusive interview on Accra-based Peace FM monitored by GhArticles, Diana Hamilton recounted how her sister’s pregnancy got her to write the song that won the most popular song of the year.
According to the singer, her sister who has a number of male children was in dire need of a female child.
When she eventually got pregnant with a girl, she encountered some complications at 20 weeks and was told to terminate the pregnancy.
In the interview, she revealed that the water protecting the baby got drained and resulted in a medical condition referred to as carrying a ‘waterless pregnancy. The sister said she held on to her faith and waited an extra 8 weeks and decided to give birth at 28 weeks. After birth, doctors said the baby was going to go blind and may not be able to speak. The singer said 4 years down the line, her sister’s daughter is perfectly fine and has grown to be the opposite of what the doctors had said would be the case.
The ‘Adom’ hitmaker said, she paid a visit to her sister and she passed the comment, “My daughter does not look like what she has been through.”
