She delivers on almost any stage she mounts and singer Wiyaala proudly says she has no competitor when it comes to stage performance. “I have no contender in Ghana and most people who have had the opportunity to watch my performances can attest to it.
“My energy comes from the rehearsals I do on daily basis,” she told Showbiz in an interview after her performance at Okyeame Kwame’s “Music and Wheels” show held at +233 Grill and Bar last Friday.
According to the Rock Ma Body hitmaker, it is the internationally-acclaimed musicians she wants to compete with and not her colleagues in Ghana. Asked whether she could compete with the likes of Rihanna and Beyoncé, the winner of last year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Best Female Vocal Artiste of the Year, said not even Rihanna and Beyoncé can match up her energy and craft on stage.
“I am not blowing my own horn but trust me, I have watched performances by Rihanna and Beyoncé and I believe I can do better than them.
“They just have big platforms. I know when I also get a big platform like theirs, I can do much better than them,” she said confidently.
Talking about her performances, Wiyaala, who has performed at events such as Fashion Icon Awards, Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, African Fashion Show and Rocky Dawuni’s Homecoming Concert, said she is always on top of her game because she rehearses almost everyday.
She explained that she was best at what she does because she always left her fans screaming for more anytime she was done with her performances.
“When people spend their hard-earned money to attend a show, I need to put up my best and I believe that has also kept me going. I don’t want a situation where people will regret attending a show after my performance,” she added.
Known for songs such as Leno, Make Me Dance, Go Go Black Stars, Tinambanyi, Peace, Africa, Siiko, Bunsun and You Got The Power, Wiyaala told her fans to watch out for great music from her this year.
Born Noella Wiyaala in the Upper West regional capital, WA, but raised in Tumu, she attended Takoradi Polytechnic where she studied Art and Design. She first came to public attention in 2011 when she won two Golden Moments awards at TV reality show, Stars of the Future.
The following year, she won the Vodafone Icons Mixed Edition contest, singing Tina Turna’s hit song, Simply the Best, as a member of the Black N Peach band.
Wiyaala, a brand ambassador for Pepsi in West Africa, alongside Nigerian songstress Tiwa Savage, left Black N Peach band in April 2013 to pursue a solo career with Djimba World Records.
Shatta Wale replies Stonebwoy, calls him a cripple
Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has descended heavily on fellow Dancehall act, Stonebwoy after the latter claimed he is a better lyricist than him.
The two acts, over the weeks, have been throwing jabs at each other ever since the Bulldog-Zylofon-Stonebwoy brouhaha happened at Paloma Hotel in Accra.
Speaking to Multimedia’s MzGee on Sunday, Stonebwoy argued that he was lyrically and musically better than Shatta Wale who has been throwing jabs at him in recent times.
“Shatta Wale can never murder me. He is never lyrically good like me and he knows it. Shatta Wale is never musically and lyrically better than I am. I murdered him in 2010 at Labadi (beach). Lyrically, I’m the baddest in Africa.”
However, it seems Shatta Wale didn’t take Stonebwoy’s words lightly as he has riposted through his Facebook account insisting that Stonebwoy is never humble and neither does he pity himself.
