It’s a special occasion with a lot of special talents and it’s an honor to be here.

After being featured on Apple Music’s new Music to Discover list, he has broken into Accra radio’s top ten charts (via Ghud music radio tracking). ‘Muscatella‘ currently sits pretty as the number one most played song on Live FM. ‘Muscatella’ has also been on the radar in countries like Kenya, Nigeria, USA and is still breaking its boundaries into other neighbouring and foreign countries.

Born in Accra, but raised in Atlanta, USA, Emmanuel Wayo (aka Wayo) started out as a rapper. After a long hiatus to realign himself and his sound, he returned in December 2017 with a slow-paced Afro-Pop sound ‘Call Me’, which quickly racked numbers despite little to no promotion.

The new single ‘Muscatella’ serves as a new dawn in music experience not only for himself, but for music lovers from his motherland, Ghana. His focus lies in bridging the gap between black American music and African music.

South by Southwest (abbreviated as SXSW and colloquially referred to as South By) is an annual conglomerate of film, interactive media and music festivals and conferences that take place in mid-March in Austin, Texas, United States.
