I entered music because of fame – Mimi Divalish

Former Big Brother Africa housemate and singer Mimi Divalish (Mimi Andani), has revealed that she entered into the music industry to be famous.

In an interview with Daily Heritage on the sidelines of Golden Movie Awards Africa press launch on Tuesday, she said, “I have a big ideology. I am not going to do music forever.”

According to the ‘Leave Me Alone’ hit maker, she wanted a number of followers to enable her rise to stardom quickly.

“I quit my job as a chemist and from Tema Oil Refinery. I went to Big Brother Africa and I had the followers, so I decided to do music so I could expand my followers and I became more famous.”

“I have too much knowledge to limit it to music or singing. Not that those who sing are not educated but it’s a choice to choose music as a career,” she added.

Mimi over the years has released hit songs like ‘DJ’, ’Tattoo’, ’Like I Am’ and ‘Should I Let Go’. She has collaborated with popular artistes such as Flavour, Selebobo, 4×4, Tiny, Castro and Zeal of VVIP.

She left the shores of Ghana to study languages at Universidad de Alicante in Spain, where she studied Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. She speaks Dabgani, Dagaare, Twi, Fante, Hausa and English.

In 2008, she released her debut album dubbed ‘Music in Me’, which earned her a lot of nominations both in Ghana Music Awards and 4Stye Video awards.
