On her recent visit to the UK, Wiyaala, aka the “Lioness of Africa”, has used the opportunity to shoot a stunning video for her song Leno
Leno’s single and music video were released on February 1, 2016.
“Leno” which means “This Place”, is a song inspired by the spirit of love and tells the story of a young man, who in former times is going about his business when he hears a beautiful female voice coming from the forest. Bewitched by the enchanting song, he enters the forest in search of its source and comes face to face with a mysterious beautiful African woman with whom he falls in love at first sight. She leads him to “This Place” (Leno) and he experiences the overwhelming power of love.
On that screen kiss, Wiyaala refuses to be drawn, saying only, “if the story requires me to kiss on screen, then I’ll do it as a professional.”
The music video is a Djimba World Production, directed by Charlotte Appleton, shot entirely on location in East Yorkshire and in the historic city of York in the UK.
“Leno” drops on the 1st February and is the third single to be released from Wiyaala’s eponymous album.
Written and composed by Noella Wiyaala
