AJ Nelson and Wiyaala ​give Power To The People​

Power to The People by AJ Nelson; a Ghanaian Hiphop, Soul and Afrobeat musician has been making waves on radio stations​ and music charts in Ghana following ​the song’s​ release late in 2015. The single which features award winning female performer​ Wiyaala ​is off AJ Nelson’s debut compilation titled Soul Food​ which was released October 10, 2015​.​

​iTunes ranked ​Power to The People​ number 3 on ​its​ list of most downloaded songs in ​Ghana in ​the last week of November​ 2015 while​ the site Wepluggoodmusic ranked ​the song​ ​as best new music of the week​ from AJ Nelson’s Soul Food​.​ ​Power To the People is produced by Fizzi Ankude.​

AJ Nelson and Wiyaala connected when they first performed on the bill of the same concert​: Awakening​,​ at Alliance Francaise​ in Accra, Ghana.​ From there on they struck an acquaintance which led to AJ​ Nelson developing an interest in working with Wiyaala on a track off his debut album. He ​initially wanted her to feature on his then studio track titled Dream.

Wiyaala however had other plans after listening to other tracks of AJ Nelson and decided ​the​ track Power to The People really resonated well with her​, she settled to sing on that track instead“​​ according to David Mawuli, Manager of AJ Nelson​ who says the two artists have such great cohesion, something that became more evident when they performed at a concert at 233 Jazz Bar and Grill in Accra, Ghana.

The artist says he will be doing more concerts and shows to promote both the album and single in his native Ghana and across Africa​,​ ​he​ asked fans to find out his next moves from his Twitter ‏@AJNelsonMusik
