From Ghana to Europe: How Stonebwoy and Wiyaala are charming the world with their sounds and talent

The androgynous singer-songwriter from Tumu may have a past as a chorister, but today she means business. In her native Sisaala, Wiyaala means “the doer.” Her pop-inflected tunes appear breezy, but her lyrics are tough on gender equality and male-dominated culture.

She’s so far on top of the list of homegrown musicians flying Ghana’s flag high on the global market with her phenomenal, delightful, powerful and lively stagecraft.

From Sheffield in the UK (where she played twice between May and June), she moved straight to Ljubljana where she played two successive concerts.

She moved back to the UK where she performed with ‘The Refugee Drop In Chair’ in London and continued her tour at Festival Milo Verde in Portugal.

Without taking a break, she quickly moved to Switzerland for the 2019 Afro-Pfingsten Festival and made a stop at Tamboril Fest in Spain.

Holland hosted the “Rock My Body” hitmaker twice at this year’s Houtfestival and Oerol Festival.

She made her way to Germany where she performed at the 2019 Fusion Festival, and the Kenako Festival, in Berlin.

Norway hosted her at another top festival, Riddu Riđđu.

Ending July on an impressive note, Wiyaala performed on three occasions in Leeuwarden, Netherlands at the 2019 Welcome to the Village festival.

In August alone, she will perform at eight different concerts and festivals in Europe.

With electrifying and energetic performance, Stonebwoy and Wiyaala have attracted a large fan base which continues to grow across the world.

As the world is now paying attention to African music, hopefully we would see these two Ghanaian musicians perform on the Coachella stage in the very near future.

Atongo Zimba is set to release the visuals for ‘Akwantuo (feat. Yaw Donkor & Awurama Agyapong)

Published

on

Ahead of his long-awaited album, Atongo Zimba brings us up to speed on his experience of travelling between continents. After taking a step back from a prolific career touring the world, Atongo reflects on going back to Ghana and people’s expectations of the returning star – the pressure and bittersweet price of success.

“When you travel and work hard then go back home, people want big things from you. It becomes like a trouble”

Atongo Zimba

The video for ‘Akwantuo’ (meaning ‘Journey’ in Twi) follows Atongo from Accra to Brighton and back again, lead by his melodic kologo and a laid-back groove underpinning the storytellers’ voice. Directed by the visionary self-shooter Baffour E’mage, the video is an insiders eye to life in Accra through almost documentary-like scenes of music, people, food, nature, city life and travelling.

Featuring the bright new talent of soul diva Awurama Agyapong and a rapper with serious flow, Yaw Donkor, ‘Akwantuo’ takes us on a shared journey, wherever the destination may be.

‘Akwantuo’ is available exclusively on Apple Music from this week and the full album will be released via Jinn Records on all digital platforms on Friday 8th October. We’d love to hear from you! Please do get in touch for more information, interviews, features, or just to say hi.

UPNMG Refutes Malicious Claims Made Against Its Leadership

Published

on

The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) has
refuted some malicious claims made against the association’s
leadership.

This comes after a wrier on Opera News with the name OBENFOBRIGHT, who
claimed to be a former member of the UPNMG and amongst many other
things, alleged that the Union doesn’t assist its members who fall
sick.

However, in a statement, the leadership of the UPNMG vehemently
refuted the claims, describing them as malicious.

“We want to state emphatically that, the faceless individual who could
not reveal his identity has never been a member of the UPNMG and
obviously knows nothing about the activities of the union but is
rather on a fruitless mission to destroy the hard-earned reputation
built by the organization over the years to satisfy his pay masters,”
a section of the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UPNMG went ahead to outline some of the intervention
schemes it has rolled out for its members.

“The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana is the first
trade Union within our noble profession to have instituted a loan
scheme for members and this loan is running at 11%.

“Anyone who speaks ill of this initiative must definitely beconsidered
an enemy of the profession because this has been a life-saving policy
that has helped thousands of Nurses and Midwives across this country.
Interestingly, they are now saying the interest rate is high when they
initially said it wasn’t even possible to run such a scheme for
members less than a year ago.

The statement added: “Apart from the loan scheme, the Union is again
the first to commence a hire purchase for members and that has been
running since its inception in May 2020. Again, we can boast of being
the first ever union within our profession to insure all our members
at no extra cost. That means no members pay any extra money for this
insurance policy.

“The union behind these malicious claims has been in existence for the
past 60 years and has done nothing for nurses and midwives. Our
presence has since kept the kitchen boiling and has made life very
uncomfortable for them, and hence these calculated attempts to dirty
the name of the union.”
