I was the first female singer to join renowned Wulomei Band – Naa Amanua

Former Lead singer of Wulomei, a traditional folk percussion group, Naa Amanua Dodoo has revealed that she was the first female singer to join the band established 48 years ago.

“The Group was already established but had no women in the Band. I was then a City Guard at Accra City Council now known as Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA). Mr. William Dadzie, an accountant with the Council noticed my interest in music and told me that a music group was in dire need of a female singer,” Naa Dodoo recounted.

“We scheduled a meeting with members of the group at Mamprobi. Upon our arrival, they auditioned me and I rehearsed with them as well. I was happy to join the group on conditions that they will not bother me and that is how I became part of Wulomei, making me the first woman to join them.“

Madam Amanua Dodoo is from a family of musicians. Her father was a guitarist and mother, a prolific dancer and singer. She believes her interest and love for music were developed during her tender age living with her parents.
After five years with the Wulomei Band, Naa Amanua left the Group to join the Suku Troupe.
