Ghanaian songstress and self-acclaimed ‘Lioness of Africa”, Wiyaala got featured on British news network Sky News for their live interview on the topic ‘Black History Month’.
Noella Wiyaala capitalised on the opportunity to talk about her life growing up in the remote parts of the Northern region. Nonetheless, she spoke about how her journey to stardom inspired a lot of children back home.
The 31 years old singer who’s well-known for her energetic stage performance and ability to sing in her native Sissala & Waale dialects plus English made it known that it all started in a Pito bar (local pub) where she was asked by some men to sing and dance.
“It All Started At A Bar Where They Make African Beer ‘Pito’. I Was Dancing Around With Some Children And Some Men Drinking At The Bar Called Me To Do A Performance Which I Obliged. That Ignited My Passion And From One Effort After Another I Got To This Place,” Wiyaala Said.
Besides, she revealed for the first time how she used to be a member of a Catholic church choir in her hometown; this presupposes that she had the desire to sing right from the onset.
“I Was A Member Of Children Of Mary Choir In A Catholic Church With Thousands Of Other Children. “Now They Ask Me – How Did You Make It? It’s Overwhelming Because, I Didn’t Know I Would Turn Out To Be A Pop Star,” She Added.
Noella Wiyaala is one of Ghana’s talented Afro-pop singers putting the nation on the map through her authentic music and we’re proud of her lioness spirit and burning desire to make name for herself despite the fact that she’s less appreciated in Ghana.
