Renowned Ghanaian-international singer, Wiyaala, has received massive praises from Ghanaians for delivering a 16-year-old girl from the claws of a 36-year-old man.
The man had attempted a child marriage with the girl. Wiyaala, however, foiled the attempt by making an arrangement with the police and handing over the man to the police.
The girl, according to information gathered by YEN.com.gh, is part of Wiyaala’s young boys and girls' club she established in her hometown, Funsi in Wa.
She took a screenshot of the publication and shared on her Instagram page, garnering a lot of reactions from fans.
Sefakor, for instance, wrote that God bless Wiyaala for saving the girl:
sefakor_alipui: “God bless you for saving the child!.”
Syannes also wrote “well done” to Wiyaala:
syanneseaweed: “Lioness, queeeeen well done.”
Janet was proud of Wiyaala:
mina__janet: “Courageously delivered Wiyaala.”
Zoey advised her to keep it up:
zoeywhyte: “Great! Keep it up.”
Maame also called Wiyaala her African warrior queen:
maame_bona: “Good job My African warrior Queen.”
Okor also praised Wiyaala:
okor.priscillanaa: “Big ups sis. U do all.”
It is good to note also that Wiyaala is the UNICEF Ghana ambassador against child marriage, and is very well committed to ending child marriage, something she said has been going on for decades where she grew up.
In the post she made, Wiyaala warned that she got the man arrested to serve as a deterrent to other men. In addition to that, she has her eyes widely opened to catch any man who would go that way.
She was in the news some time ago following a revelation she made that only four people attended her wedding.
Wiyaala also trended in the news when photos of her white husband surfaced on the internet for the first time.
In yet another publication by YEN.com.gh, Wiyaala shared a throwback photo looking very big in secondary school. The photo got people bomarding her with questions about how she became so slim some years after.
