Noella Wiyaala, the young singer/songwriter will tomorrow, November 14, perform at the Alliance Française in Accra.
Frequently compared to Angelique Kidjo, she infuses her African roots into contemporary pop to create Afro Pop. With four nominations including Best West African Female at the All African Music Awards 2014, Wiyaala is set to infuse an absorbing show with songs from her new album.
In 2013, Wiyaala emerged as a solo artiste and released two video hit singles on the Djimba World label, Make Me Dance and Rock My Body, which were both nominated for awards in the “Best Discovery” and the “Best Reggae/Dancehall” categories in Ghana’s 4Syte TV Music Video Awards for 2013.
Early this year, Wiyaala released her World Cup anthem, Go Go, Black Stars, for the Ghana national football team, which was featured on Billboard and adopted by Ghanaians as the unofficial world cup song for the Black Stars.
The song also featured as a soundtrack to a BBC Africa World Cup programme and in nationwide advertising campaigns in Ghana for Chinese Telecoms giant, Huawei and Global Aviation.
In May 2014, Wiyaala was confirmed as the face of Pepsi Ghana and in June 2014, she was nominated for Female Fashion Personality of The Year at the Fashion Icons Awards.
Institut Français (Ghana) and Alliance Française (Accra) are supporting the concert.
