The songstress who is making the name of Ghana high on the international stage, Wiyala, is ready to rock Ghana. The Rock My Body hitmaker, Wiyaala, last performed in Accra for an entire concert five years ago. The last time was in 2018. This month, she has two concerts!
Wiyaala stated in an interview that both locations are fantastic places to see live band music in Ghana. She will be backed by a band that has been there for her since 2019, thus Yaga Yagas. She said,
My band, The Yaga Yagas, with whom I have been performing since 2019, will be taking me on tour throughout Europe. There will be some of the old favorites, like Rock My Body, and some new and very interesting songs. I love to encourage the audience to be part of the show. Expect the unexpected!
Additionally, I will be bringing some interesting and gifted Northern Ghanaian musicians. Master xylophonist Isaac Birituro, kologo player Stevo Atimbre, and I introducing the Chin-Chigas, a promising new young band from Washington, will all be performing.
The show will be held at +233 Jazz Bar & Grill at 9 pm Saturday, July 27th, and Alliance Française Accra: on Friday, January 26 at 8 p.m.
Leading entertainment commentator in Ghana, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, shared his thoughts on Wiyaala:
“NO CHALLENGER! Wiyaala is Ghana’s best live performer!”
