In a hearty chat on ETV’s Late Night Celebrity Show Wednesday, Wiyaala recalled how she will always complain about how small her food was growing up in a family home in Wa.

She said: “I, for example, I was very stubborn. Nothing pleases me. Like if my mother is cooking and the food is shared, I always feel like I have been cheated. I was always competing, like everything I want to compete. I think there is a bit of that in my musical career [SIC]. “I just want everything, like my food, is small and I am always complaining.”

Wiyaala told host Eddy Blay that her siblings are all girls and that she came close to being a boy. Just like her they can all sing, including his mother who is a chorister. 

“Apart from me, my other sisters they are very calm, they can all sing but they are a bit shy. I am the only one who is [hyper],” she said.

She said: “I always wanted to play guitar when I was growing up. And one day I saw a playing with guitar just walking in Wa and I just loved the sound. And I was following him and I said, ‘Uncle can I touch your guitar?"

I wanted to play the guitar but my “mother said it was a bit expensive, you know ‘let me contribute.’ So we contributed and whenever I go [to buy the guitar], the price increase.
