Fashionghana.com Pop sensation Noella Wiyaala leads the androgeny trend in Ghana | 6th May 2013

"Might not be  a popular fashion choice in the country but believe it or not this art has been popularized by several pop stars and celebrities. It is the art of androgyny or gender bending which is set to be popularized in the west African country Ghana by Noella Wiyaala a new afro pop sensation. Personally i think is right since there are already a load of female musicians who are already popularizing their femininity and divaness to the world so it will be better and will set her apart from her other competitors with her androgynous look.

Flex Newspaper Vodafone Icon Noella shoots Ghana's first underwater video | 10th June 2013

"Sensational Afro Rock songstress Noella Wiyaala after her exploits in Stars of the Future and Vodafone Icons has finally broken away from her Black n Peach crew to pursue what she calls Afro Rock music on Djimba World Records. This Afro Rock music can be felt in her new single "Make Me Dance" which has an amazing video which was officially released on April 4th on GH1 TV.  "Make Me Dance" was shot in the studio and on location at Pram Pram. The video which features the multi-talented singer in scenes shot underwater and dancers from the Henokani Culture Troup from New Ningo was directed by Mr Chaplin and produced at Genius Selection Studios. "The underwater shots were the toughest and I had to take swimming classes for two weeks straight just for that particular scene. It was very intense and a little difficult trying to swim and concentrate on the camera at the same time, but when every thing was done, I realised all the efforts to make a great video paid off and I know Ghanaians will love this," Noella Wiyaala revealed. She is about to take over the music industry with her skillful stage antics whilst dazzling with her silky voice."

Daily Graphic | Black n Peach Winners of Vodafone Icons Mixed Edition | 18th May 2012

"At the end of it all, it was the Black n Peach who emerged winners on the wings of a Tina Turner song that said it all: “Simply the Best”. Black n Peach won because they knew their strongest points and used them to their advantage – stage presence, good harmony and the strong voice of lead singer Noella Wiyaala. In the  second and third rounds, Black n Peach only came on to confirm one strategy that must have been obvious to the audience. The trio acknowledged the strong voice of their Grace Jones cum Angelique Kodjo style lead singer Noella and pushed her forward. That did it." 


Ghanacelebrities.com | Stars of the Future Season 5 | 24th May 2012

"Noella is bold, smart and filled with an enviable zeal that presents her as a refreshing performer and though an amateur musician, she is the pride of the Upper West Region."
