Watch: I’m not here to win “Artist of the Year,” I’m an artiste forever-Wiyaala goes off on entertainment pundits who said she doesn’t “count”

Published

on

Internationally recognised singer, Wiyaala has expressed her anger towards some entertainment pundits who think she doesn’t count in the Ghanaian music industry. 

The “Lioness of Africa,” in a video posted on her social media pages today, went on a first time ever rant to express her displeasure at entertainment pundits, KMJ and Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, who during their discussions, stated that Wiyaala doesn’t belong to the Ghanaian music industry because her focus is on the international market.

“This message is going to industry players especially those who do the blogging and criticising and whatever. Please, KMJ, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo and whatever…..If I don’t really count in this industry and I have never been counted as part of this industry, then don’t discuss me when you are talking about showbiz in Ghana,” she said in the video.

“You can’t always mention my name and turn around and say oh shout out to Wiyaala but she doesn’t really count because she and her manager are just concentrating abroad doing international stuff. Why won’t I concentrate there?” she quizzed.

According to Wiyaala, the fact that she won’t go the extra mile to do all manner of things to trend and win awards like some popular musicians in Ghana do doesn’t make her an “idiot.”

“And then the music industry is dead because Kaakie and Ebony and MzVee all of a sudden are no longer doing music. You can always call them back can’t you? Since the rest of us you think are not controversial enough, we are showing skin enough, we are not insulting each other enough,. we are not attacking each other enough, so that you can get something to write. And then you can take me to the slaughter house divide me into pieces, say all manner of things about me…You think some of us are idiots? We should come and fool because we want to win artist of the year and then what next? what do we get from that?” she quizzed.

The singer who believes that her greatest award lies in her hometown of Funsi added that artists who write “foolish” songs to get attention and win awards are actually fooling themselves.

“In Ghana there are no royalties, we don’t get anything. so some of us might not be the most intelligent but we do have brains to understand that when you do foolish songs just because you want to get attention and win a few awards, you are actually fooling yourself. Or when you try to get involved in this kid of industry, that it doesn’t really make sense. That’s why some people come in and when they realise what is going on, they back off and just keep quite,” she added.

Wiyaala went on to give a word of caution to industry players who still believe she has not “arrived.”

“And those of you trying to make Wiyaala feel like she hasn’t  arrived until I win maybe Artist of the year or win more awards. Please, I am not here to win Artist of the year because I am not an artist of the year kid of musician, I am an artist forever and ever, even when I’m dead, you will still hear my music in your grave. I don’t know your problem but if I don’t really count. stop mentioning my name when you are discussing your showbiz things. Keep me out. I’m all about posisitivity,” she concluded.

Published

on

Kumasi came to a virtual standstill as a star-studded line up of the biggest culture change makers in the country and region came together to thrill guests at the Guinness Bright House Experience held at the Golden Bean Hotel.

The Bright House Experience, a fundamental part of the Guinness Black Shines Brightest campaign, is a model bar which will serve as a cultural space and a hub for people to connect and energize each other with creativity, inspiration and, of course, a cold bottle of Guinness.

Graced by several celebrities, media influencers, culture makers and industry partners, the launch of the Guinness Bright House Experience in Kumasi was the melting pot for the celebrations of talent and achievements.

The Bright House Experience started with performances from some of the top Kumerica artistes who set the tone, with guests screaming for more at each performance.

Camidoh, Wendy Shey, Strongman, Mr. Drew and AMG Business Beyond Kontrol rapper, Medikal dropped hit song after hit song getting patrons gyrating and singing in unison as they performed.

With all the exciting performances, the crowd had lots of energy to jive along with Incredible Zigi, Face of the Black Shines Brightest Campaign. He showed off his dance skills with his Afrozig crew to a variety of songs and eventually taught the audience the viral dance to the theme song for the campaign.

The Bright House Experience will see Guinness working closely with bars across the country, to show the company’s commitment to partnering with its customers and consumers for the best lived experiences when enjoying a cold bottle of Guinness. These bars will also appear in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale.

One of Ghana’s best reggae selectors, African Child kept the momentum on as he engaged the crowd with his ‘Kumoo’ hit song.

The next stop for the Guinness Bright House Experience is Tamale where consumers will get to feel and enjoy the Black Shines Brightest campaign.
