Wiyaala & Patchbay Band project Ghanaian culture & music in historic Dubai event!

Created by Nina Olatoke, it's to promote African culture as a global conversation.

On Saturday 23rd October 2021, Ghanaian musicians, Wiyaala and the Patchbay Band put up a history-making show at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai at the maiden edition of the All Africa Festival.

It was an event created by Nina Olatoke and supported by Emaar Dubai promoting African culture as a global conversation.

In the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, what better advocate for Africa can there be than Wiyaala, who opened her set with her signature tune “Tinambanyi”, a song which foretells the rise of the under-appreciated.

This was followed by “Siiko” which speaks of African tradition in conflict with modern ways and urges the people of Africa not to lose sight of their roots and identity.

In “People Don’t Stop”, Wiyaala was again on message urging her people to keep fighting for their dreams. The finale was her hit song “Yaga Yaga” which had the audience enthusiastically joining her in a call and response.

The power of the performance was made possible by the skilled musicians of Patchbay who were on top of their game, reveling in the charisma, vocal power and athleticism of the lady who for good reason is also known as the Lioness of Africa.
