Wiyaala, which means “the doer” in her local Sissala dialect, has spent the last few years achieving just that – doing it all. After being spotted by Rita Ray of BBC’s Global Beats in 2014, Wiyaala has emerged as one of Ghana’s leading international touring artists with her fusion of West African folk songs and contemporary Afro-pop. Wiyaala, who designs and sews her own unique stage costumes, is an active influencer for UNICEF and is a committed supporter of the arts in Northern Ghana having created and organized the Djimba World Music Festival. Expect very big things.
