Noella Wiyaala grabs Pepsi ambassadorial deal

Noella Wiyaala has been snapped up by Pepsi for a brand ambassadorial role in 2014. The soft drink manufacturer is yet to put out official information but sources say the deal “is done”.

She joins Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage in the New Year as the only two ambassadors in West Africa.

Sources close to her say “Wiyaala’s image is expected to be used extensively to promote Pepsi throughout Ghana as the brand looks to grab a larger share of the soft drinks market.

“It is thought that the hard-working singer was selected because she personifies that new breed of ambitious young Ghanaians who “Dare for More” by aspiring to make their mark as Africans in all walks of life at home and abroad.”

Since coming out in 2013, Wiyaala has released seven songs; including club remixes of “Make Me Dance”, and also secured an international distribution and publishing deal with JTV Digital in Paris.

She also made her TV acting debut in Viasat 1’s hit comedy series MultiKoloured this year.

The young songstress is handled by Djimba World.
