Hello, Gina G, hope you’re doing good . Please, introduce yourself.

Gina G
My name is Gina G. I’m a singer and songwriter signed to Otia Productions.

NexDim
What inspired you to indulge into music?

Gina G
Music is something that has always come to me naturally. I want to believe music chose me because no matter how many times I tried to run away from it, I just got pulled back in almost effortlessly by certain events and opportunities.

NexDim
How did you get signed by Otia Production ?

Gina G
I was working in Yaounde at the time. Music was really not something I wanted to do because I had other plans. Then I got a call from the CEO of Otia Productions (Initiated by Galaxee Je Waan). Honestly, last year before that call, I had declined another offer but there was just something about this team, this label that inspired me to get back to music. So I agreed and we sealed the deal.

NexDim

Gina G
No specific artist is an influence. Any piece of music that is beautiful, inspires me and influences my work.

I think it’s probably the fact that I want to experiment with every possible genre and in the course of that create a brand new sound.
