Talented Ghanaian songstress Adomaa has revealed in a touching interview that she almost bleached her skin after feeling degraded about her complexion.

According to Adomaa, this pressure from social media almost forced her to bleach her skin in order to conform into the expected norms that have been set by ‘the new world order’ that does not make room for dark skin.

In an interview with Yaa Somuah, Adomaa revealed that she was always sad and had insecurities when she attended boarding school in Nigeria where she was frequently mocked for being dark-skinned.

She said: “I used to hear statements like Oh you are so dark, oh my God the sun in Ghana, does it burn people. It made me feel very very insecure, I am not proud of it but there are times I actually attempted bleaching just to fit in”.

“I don’t think it is normal for any human being to live their lives where everybody is a part of every single thing that they are doing. The celebrity kingdom is not normal, I feel like everybody has vulnerable moments, has everyday lives and there are certain things you want to keep for yourself, there are certain things you allow yourself to be open to family, there is a version of yourself that you allow to be open to friends, there is layers to it but when you are in this spotlight you have no privacy and it is not normal”.

Adomaa previously battled depression for a few years but has now overcome it, and she is now steadily working to shine.
