Sierra Leonean-Nigerian singer, Hadiza Blell also known as Di’Ja, recently detailed her rise to fame and the countless failures she had on her way up.
Di’ja who is signed to Mavins Record headed by Don Jazzy recently revealed all this during an interview on her Coke Studio Africa session.
Some of the jobs she did before she blew up were: waitressing & being a mascot at children’s parties to fund her music.
Encouraging young people not to give up on their dreams even when they fail, she said,
I’ve tried and failed a lot of things in the past, same with music, I don’t even think am good at it as much yet, I’m still getting there but I’ve failed many many times. Find what you are good at, practice every day, fail at it many times until you are good at it.
Di’Ja is currently signed as an ambassador to telecom giant, Glo.
