Wiyaala Back in Ghana to Thrill Audiences Again

Published

on

Wiyaala, Ghana’s iconic international singing star, has barely set foot back in Ghana following her extended UK and European tour and she is already thrilling patrons with back to back performances in Accra.

To Wiyaala, it matters not one jot whether it is a small show, a big show, a corporate show, a birthday party, an international festival or theatre, the charismatic songstress will always delight the audience with an outstanding display of stagecraft and vocal ability backed by the Djimba World Band, a group of handpicked musicians selected for talent, hard work and discipline.

And so it was at the weekend as Wiyaala performed two mesmerising back to back 90 minute sets, first at VinAfrica 2017 at the Labadi Beach Hotel followed the next day by a private VIP party for the 60th birthday celebrations of Prof. Henrietta Mensa-Bonsu, senior lecturer at the University of Ghana Faculty of Law.

As if that was not enough, the “young lioness of Africa”, before coming down from Wa to Accra to rehearse for the weekend performances, had performed to ecstatic “freshers” of Wa Poly in a Facebook video that went viral.

And there is no let up. Wiyaala is slated to perform at the Movenpick hotel at a dinner hosted by UNFPA Ghana on the 16th November.

Messages of condolence have come from the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, ex-president John Mahama, and an endless list of  colleague entertainers and showbiz stakeholders.

Born  Priscilla Opoku -Kwarteng, Ebony met her untimely death on Thursday February 8, when the jeep she was traveling in, slammed into an oncoming VIP bus. The accident, which happened on the Kumasi – Sunyani road, also led to the death of a military officer identified as Francis Atsu Vondee and a female acquaintance identified only as Frankie, who were also onboard the Jeep.

A one-week commemoration of her passing has been slated for Dansoman tomorrow, February 18.
