“She (Wiyaala) is amazing. She’s really amazing. She’s one of our bright stars in Ghana. And she’s doing it on her own terms,” Rocky told

He added that: “She is out there making it happen and it totally reminds me of my formula. I just had to go out there, knock some doors and be on stages and let people see you.

I think that she has that quality and I see her going extremely going far in her path.”
