Today Noella Wiyaala is dropping the video for Leno (This Place) and releasing the song worldwide as a single on all digital platforms.

As an independent artiste owning her own label (Djimba World Records), she is free to go in whatever artistic direction she chooses. Wiyaala used her opportunity in the UK to shoot a video for “Leno” in Yorkshire. “Even better, Charlotte Appleton (Rock My Body, Go Go Black Stars) the director, came up with a great storyline set in historical times” Wiyaala said.

In the video, she plays the role of a beautiful African temptress who bewitches and seduces a young man (played by British actor Neil Tattersall)…. You will have to watch the video to see what happens!


And there is lot’s more news to come! Wiyaala’s film acting debut in “No Man’s Land” will premiere at The Accra Silverbird on the 13th February.  She is travelling

to South Africa this month to shoot a video for “Hiizi”, a song collaboration with Mzee & Rafiki, from their upcoming album with artistes from all over Africa including Salif Keita from Mali.
Wiyaala wishes you a Happy New Year!
