Ghanaian female musician, Wiyaala has disclosed how much impact COVID-19 has had on her career. Accordig to the singer who calls herself the 'lioness of Africa', coronavirus restrictions has compelled to postpone 53 international shows.
Counting her losses, the “Rock my body” crooner expressed her disappointment of been unable to perform at those shows, particularly those that were scheduled in the United States.
This according to her, was supposed to be her first show on an American stage had it not been for the coronavirus pandemic.
“I won’t be performing about 53 songs this year from different countries. Germany, France and so on. I was supposed to perform in America for the first time on a big stage but because of COVID-19, all my shows have been moved to next year, 2021. They haven’t been cancelled and are still lined up the same. A few will have to re-adjust,” she said in an interview with Ghanaweb.
She, however, expressed her deepest apologies to her fans who have bought tickets just to catch a glimpse of her on stage.
“People were eager to see me. They bought tickets just to see the lioness of Africa. They see me all the time on social media but hasn’t seen me in real life. I’m really sorry this can’t happen this year,” Wiyaala added.
Wiyaala has been in the news in the past days for warning bloggers not to make her the focus of their discussions if they fail to recognise her worth.
