Performers who go on reality TV talent shows don’t tend to have too much of a message to deliver but Wiyaala known simply as Noella Wiyaala certainly does.
In 2016, she dropped this beautiful masterpiece titled LENO, which literally means This Place.
This trend-bucking singer may have been a runner-up on the Stars Of The Future show in Ghana, but her music comes packed with purpose; she’s rallied both for women’s rights and against forced marriage. The epitome of a free-thinking, liberated woman herself, she’s become one of the major voices of young Ghana, keen to engage with global culture while not relinquishing a grasp of her heritage. “We love our ‘African-ness’,” she says, “but we also want to embrace and take our place as equal citizens in the modern world.” Known as the Young Lioness Of Africa
