The Voice Of America (VOA) every week profiles music artistes on the African continent and this week it makes a stopover in Ghana for a musical chitchat with one of the country’s topmost female artiste, Wiyaala.
The ace musician will share with the world how she got into music and what inspired that. The dusky damsel will also touch on his upcoming musical collaboration with South African music legend, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and also her relationship with Angelique Kidjo.
Coupled with this, Wiyaala would speak on her experience at her recent European tour, among other issues vis-a-vis music.
“Noella Wiyaala is a very unique musician and a music powerhouse. She’s already hoisting the flag of Ghana high and by dint of hard-work and good management, I believe she would become a global music act of great preeminence like Angelique Kidjo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, et al.”, said University of Ghana’s Eugene Selorm Owusu, who’s VOA’s stringer in Ghana.
The interview with Wiyaala airs on the Music Time In Africa show, hosted by Dr. Heather Maxwell on Friday, October, 21 at 21:00 GMT on the VOA Radio, which can be accessed in Accra Ghana on 98.1 FM and www.voanews.com across the globe.
A repeat broadcast is on Saturday, October, 22 at 09:00 GMT, 15:00 GMT and 20:00 GMT respectively.
