The musical journey of the Ghanaian songstress Noella Wiyala was not an easy one as she voice our her past saying she was told at Vodafone Icons Auditions that, her looks wasn’t what they were looking for.
Narrative her ordeal on the Vodafone icons on the Kwaku Sintim-Mensah’s ‘KSM’ show on Pan Africa television, Wiyaala, indicated that she was rejected twice at the Vodafone icons auditions because they believed her voice wasn’t good enough, and that her looks weren’t what they were looking for at that time.
According to Wiyaala, she kept going for the Vodafone icons auditions because she felt there was something in her heart that people didn’t know she had. So, she felt it was the right opportunity to show people what she’s got.
“Everytime I went for the auditions, they use to tell me that my voice wasn’t good enough. Yes, to some extent it was true, but I just needed to train and I was also told that my looks wasn’t what they were looking for at that time.”
Wiyaala indicated that it was quite frustrating for her to hear those comments at the Vodafone icons auditions because she used to tell herself that; this is all she has and she doesn’t have anything to add to herself, and she doesn’t know what to change about herself as well.
