“Entering the music industry when there were already big names was not a very easy task. Fortunately, I always had what it takes and it helped me persevere in the industry. Being from Ghana was not a plus point for me for a huge number of years. It took years of hard work to build the confidence that I have today," he shared.

Back in 2016, Adam Ro released the song African Story, which he tells Legit.ng, was received very well by not only African audiences but also people from the west.

"I can say that it was the time when people really got to understand my style of music and what it actually meant,” Adam Ro added.
