Diana Hamilton reveals what inspired her to make her hit song ‘Adom’

Diana Hamilton, the current bearer of the VGMA Artiste of the Year title, has explained what inspired her award-winning song, “Adom,” which won three additional prizes at the 21st Ghana Music Awards.

The ‘Mo Ne Yo’ hitmaker said in an interview with Peace FM’s Kwame Sefa Kayi on Thursday morning that her sister’s recent pregnancy inspired her to write the song.

Her sister nearly lost her last child after her water broke 20 weeks into her pregnancy, according to her account, which was watched by bestshowbiz, but her faith in God rescued her and the baby without any difficulties, as the doctors anticipated.

“I have a little sibling who looks exactly like me,” she started narrating. “She got pregnant and was expecting a female child because she already has two male children. She has experienced several miscarriages so she hides her pregnancy from everyone, including myself.”

“Twenty weeks into her pregnancy, her water broke. She was told that her unborn child should be removed because it ‘won’t work.’ She said she will believe in God that it will work. The baby was left in the ‘waterless womb’ for eight extra weeks. That makes it 28 weeks.”

“When she delivered, the doctor said the baby would be blind, deaf, mute and everything that could possibly go wrong. As I speak, the child is about four years. She’s beautiful, smart and has no problems.”

“At her naming ceremony, my sister told me that when she looks into her shell [mirror], she doesn’t look like what she is going through. So, I started writing the songs and she gave me a couple of lyrics and the rest is history,” she added.

“I feel enthusiastic to win the Artiste of the Year, but it has also added a responsibility. I will go to wherever I got this win from again to keep on delivering, dishing out great songs and keep on aiming for excellence,” she concluded.
