Singer Wiyaala is off to a busy 2017 after her successful Djimba World Festival debut last month. She’s set to visit Nairobi to record with singers Falsetto Chorus (who seem very excited as a recent tweet suggests):

Her singles including Kandibanye (Had I known), Tuma, Sun and Moon and Leno, have ensured that she has become among Africa’s most prominent music exports, touring top destinations across the globe including Wales, Hull, London, Hamburg, Los Angeles, among others.
Noella Wiyaala (known under the stage name Wiyaala) sings in her native Sissala and Waale dialects, as well as English. She shot to national prominence as member of Ghanaian band Black N Peach (winners of Vodafone ICONS 2012). She has since gone solo and become a global performer. She’s currently brand ambassador for PepsiCo in West Africa, as well as Converse All Stars for Ghana since 2014.
She’s currently signed to Djimba World Records, and JTV Digital.
