Sisaala music queen, with the accolade “young lioness of Africa”, noted for hit song “tinamba nyi”, Noella Wiyaala, has told DJ Murphy Lee of Metro FM in Sunyani, that the chances of dancehall artistes from Ghana surviving is 50 – 50.

The multiple award winner was expressing her view concerning what highlife music legend; Gyedu Blay Ambulley asserted that dancehall artists from Ghana can’t survive.

“I think, it’s 50 50; I agree with Ambulley because he is a legend, a matured musician and a father who is looking at it from the authenticity and the originality aspect” she explained.

“Stonebwoy loves dancehall music and when you love something you give out your best. He gave out his best. He has proved people wrong by winning the coveted VGMA artiste of the year and BET award; that’s why I said it’s 50 50 “, she differentiated.

Concerning her ambassadorial deal with Glo, this is what she told Dj murphy

“It is very true I rejected $15,000 from Glo. This is because I think the money is small concerning the restrictions attached to it. I can’t perform at the VGMA and for other networks. When you calculate the amount of money I charge per show it wouldn’t favour me. it’s just mathematics “,She explained.

Wiyaala was part of other African acts who headlined the Hague African festival in the Netherlands. She is due to perform in the Hague again in September this year.
