I have just spent the last 3 days in a tiny village in North Western Ghana called Funsi and IT WAS SO AMAZING! My buddy Wode Maya and I were invited up here by a local singer, songwriter and all around superstar named Wiyaala, and she was kind enough to show us everything around her beloved hometown.
Wiyaala is on another level of inspiring and sincere — after coming from humble beginnings, she achieved massive international fame after winning a popular singing contest in Ghana several years ago… and now her songs are played from speakers all over the world. But aside from her musical talents, Wiyaala has the kindest heart as you will see in this video. Despite financial success and freedom, she chooses to live here in Funsi with her family and friends. After traveling to 192 countries, I can say with confidence that the people in this village are the some of the friendliest and most hospitable on this planet — and this has been an experience that I will never forget.
Thank you Wiyaala for hosting us and for being such a blessing to this world. I encourage all of you to listen to her music, just search for it on YouTube!
