Wiyaala has acknowledged the significant part that reality show Vodafone Ghana Icons contributed to her flourishing career on BBC Radio London’s popular Sunday morning show “Inspirit with Jumoke Fashola”.
The Sissala songstress had joined Kenneth Olumuyiwa Tharp CBE, CEO of The Africa Centre in London to promote the upcoming annual Africa Summer Festival at which she will be performing. As well as relating her Vodafone Icons experience, an effervescent Wiyaala charmed her distinguished host Jumoke Fashola with a live performance and hilarious banter about her humble origins.
