i found a source saying it is Hausa (a language and people living in the north of Nigeria) and a source saying it is Swahili, but both say the meaning is 'gift'.

here are the links:

(this website says Adia is Swahili)

(this website says Adia is Hausa, note: 'ein Geschenk' is 'a gift' in German, thus same meaning)

(this website is about the Hausa people if you are interested)
