Creative entrepreneur and budding singer/rapper is penning down exactly how she feels about our country Nigeria. The artist has gotten her fair share of the struggles of setting up and running a business entity in Nigeria which could most likely have influenced her latest testament.
Taking to social media on Independence day, Adaora expressed: “Many (most) days, Nigeria gets on my nerves. I get so upset about the way things are done in this country. We have a bitter-sweet relationship. 11 years ago, I could have chosen to stay in the United States of America, but I jumped quickly on a plane to the motherland, to embark upon great work that I believe is important. I used to be super Pro Nigeria – I would tell everyone to move back home so that we could all work together to make Nigeria better. I no longer ask people to move though… Not unless they are ready for the daily madness that occurs here.”
The mother-of-one has recently adopted a stage name, Lumina, which is a reflection of her music, one which gives hope and light, and already has a debut single out.
Regardless the very unpalatable situation of the country, Adaora tries to uphold a level of positivity. “Nigeria is a complex web of ‘potential’- I’ve been hearing this all my life. Potentials, Possibilities, Prayer etc. Honestly, I don’t know when this potential will turn to anything. But while I’m here, I’ll keep doing the best that I can to contribute what I can, where I can.” She affirmed.
