According to Wiyaala, her style of music always makes her stand out among her colleagues in the industry.

“if you don’t know the difference you will think it is one language but it is actually different languages.” she explained.

Known as the Lioness of Africa due to the energy she exudes on stage, Wiyaala has  cautioned African parents to teach their kids their traditional languages so that their kids will not lose their identity.

“Every parent must teach their child their local dialect, if you don’t do that, it’s very embarrassing and when you go home they will be making fun of you… it is one thing you have to learn ‘compulsory by force,'” she added.
