2014 World Cup: Review of Black Stars anthem by Ghanaian artiste Wiyaala
Wiyaala did not just amaze Africa with her fierce ball winning and tackling abilities during her time at the Upper West Girls team, she is now back dazzling the world with her singing prowess.
‘The Young lioness of Africa’ from Wa, otherwise known as Wiyaala blends the use of tribal drums, big stadium chorus’s, three Ghanaian languages and English.
The tribal drums can be clearly heard as the song starts. It creates an ambience of excitement as Wa readies herself and her crowd for the excitement that is to come.
Wa must have learnt this from K’Naan whose song ‘Waving Flag’ was used as a 2010 World Cup club banger.
Wa doesn’t disappoint as the words “GO, GO, GO” start a beautiful exploration of music. Her use of the words “It’s time to show the world again what we’ve got’.
A former Vodafone Icons winner, Wiyaala was recently appointed the Pepsi Brand Ambassador for Ghana in 2014.
