She keeps growing in stature and confidence and her energetic wide-ranging style which first caught public attention in 2011, continues to prove that the down-to-earth singer/songwriter from Fumsi in the Wa West district of the Upper West Region has something to offer music lovers of all persuasions.
Wiyaala’s live shows, whether in Ghana, Canada, Germany, Holland, Nigeria, South Africa or Morroco, offer glimpses into the influences that have shaped her image and attitude to music.
At her last major show in Accra which happened to be at the +233 Jazz Bar and Grill last September, patrons could hardly sit still as she, together with her Djimba World Band, rocked the venue with some thrilling vibes.
She returns to +233 on Saturday, December 12, to excite fans with another entertaining spectacle of contemporary African live music at its best.
Wiyaala says besides performing her popular hits, she will sing live remixes of her most current collaborations with international and Ghanaian artistes.
So patrons should expect to hear her render hits such as This Is Who I Am (with Moroccan star, Ahmed Soultan), All I Want (with Dearzim from Zimbabwe), Hiisi (with South Africa’s Mzee & Rafiki), Mama (with alternative rock band, Dark Suburb), Power To The People (with AJ Nelson ) and Real Woman (with MzVee).
Her return to +233 is at the request of discerning fans who saw her at the September performance where for over two hours, the young lady sang and danced and in the process, got everyone else at the show to sing and dance along with her.
She played guitar at some points and described herself as contemporary but traditional. The rising international star created a party atmosphere as she also gave the excited audience songs by acts such as Angelique Kidjo, Johnny Nash, Tina Turner, Shaggy, Miriam Makeba, Michael Jackson and Osibisa.
Her management team, Djimba World Productions, has pointed out that Wiyaala is looking forward to an even more exciting show at +233 than the last one.
“She knows that being herself and not trying to imitate somebody else is surely the winning path,” a spokesperson for the management team said.
Also scheduled to appear at the concert alongside Wiyaala are the Dark Suburb rock band and rapper/singer AJ Nelson.
