It Was Painful! Nigerian Singer Dona Diva Reveals How She Lost Her Virginity
Popular Nigerian, sassy, female music artist Dona Diva was recently opened up a lot about herself, including some private issues when she was featured in an interview by The Entertainer.
Excerpts from the interview below:
Who is Dona Diva?
My real name is Dona Adjah and my stage name is Dona Diva. Iâ€™m from the Urhobo speaking part of Delta State. I am into music and fashion.
How would you describe your experience as a singer?
Itâ€™s a bitter-sweet experience but I have chosen the sweet part of it. In everything you do, there are bound to be ups and downs. I combine fashion and music together and itâ€™s quite exciting because I appear on stage with my own hand made costumes and people are like, â€˜nice dressâ€™ even before I start performing. Itâ€™s not really been easy but Iâ€™m having fun.
Tell us about the single you have on air?
The single I initially dropped was Shut Up. I did it because of people who tried to run me down. I am saying Shut Up to these negative people because I know you can achieve anything as long as you believe in your dreams, in yourself and in God. The new single is New Gaga; I am dropping its video any time soon. Itâ€™s all about music and dance. The message is, just enjoy the music, feel the rhythm and let go off your sorrows.
Could we say youâ€™re not married because youâ€™re distracted by the loads of rich guys hanging around you? Do you believe in love?
Love does exist. I donâ€™t know whether it is true love but it does exist. But the fact that I mingle with rich boys doesn’t mean I wouldn’t know who to choose when the time comes. I canâ€™t replace love with material things or riches.
Isn’t your boyfriend scared you might dump him for a richer guy?
I donâ€™t know how he feels but he supports my career.
Isnâ€™t he sometimes worried?
Yes, sometimes I see it in him but he supports me.
Have you ever had a crush on any of your fans before?
Yes, I was having this crush on a guy (laughs) but I found out heâ€™s married so I had to let go.
What was it like the first time you had sex?
You say wetin? (laughter) It was a lot of crying because it was painful. The same thing I think for every girl.
What was it like performing for Obasanjo and Jonathan?
I performed with Sugar Band at Obasanjoâ€™s birthday and I was excited. I also performed for President Jonathan. I saw him smiling as he watched me. I felt so special that my president appreciates what I am doing; it was a great experience for me.
