Wiyaala Lioness

Ghanaian International Afropop singer, Wiyaala has been nominated for Best World Production Music at the Production Music Awards 2019 slated for the 22nd November at The Ballroom, 8 Northumberland Avenue in Central London.
“Nabori” is a Universal Production Music song from their ‘Global Attitude’ 2019 album, featuring ‘bongos crossed with Baile Funk beats and authentic Sissala female vocals with extreme attitude and ROARS!!’

The work is a collaboration between Amy Mcknight, a renowned London based music producer/composer/songwriter, Chris Jefferson and Wiyaala on vocals.

“This nomination shows how the Sissala language has an appeal right across the globe and how Ghanaian artists can take their culture from the remotest community and the world is hungry for it” Wiyaala said

Also known as the Lioness of Africa, Wiyaala explained how she got on the track.

“I was introduced to Amy through my work with GRRRL and she thought I would be just right for a song on the album. Amy wanted something with the roar factor, so I came up with the idea of a wild African lioness on the rampage in a foreign town which is exactly what I do when get on the international stage. The lioness can not be contained and you will dance with joy or run away in fear! We were so inspired we ended up doing three songs” she stated

The Production Music Awards, London, celebrates the best production music libraries and the most talented composers from all over the world offering libraries large and small the opportunity to share the depth and quality of modern production music with the wider sync, media and advertising industries.
