Afropop singer, Wiyaala is getting a great opportunity to boost her brand outside Ghana as she joins UK X Factor stars Reggie N Bollie on a UK tour to promote their new album, Uncommon Favours.
Wiyaala will join the duo on the Manchester and Glasgow leg of the concert dubbed “Good Vibes”. Reggie N Bollie made the announcment on their Facebook wall on Friday.
“#GoodVibes tour would be Massive n full of variety. We’re bringing you African superstar @Wiyaala, the Lioness, as a guest performer in Manchester n
Reggie added, “We met Wiyaala after she performed at the GUBA Awards in London last year.
We were so blown away by her energy and talent that we signed her up for a feature.
We recorded Good Vibes with her and the song made it on to our new album.
We are very excited, we just know our fans are going to love her!”
Wiyaala is one of Ghana’s strongest vocal talents who has proudly infused her culture into her music and she is set to win more fans with her performances.
In a chat with Showbiz, she said, “I’m very happy my brothers saw the talent in me and featured me on a
song. I just met them at a show in London and that is how we established our relationship.
I will also use the opportunity to enhance and promote my brand.”.
She told Showbiz it is important for young artistes to find creative ways of selling Ghanaian music than copying foreign artistes.
“I don’t think Reggie N Bollie would have been intrigued by my performance if I had done what they
are used to in the UK.
My act was quite different, it was African and
they could relate to that as Ghanaians.
