Emmanuella Akua Gyaamah Berchie is a Ghanaian female singer and songwriter who goes by the stage name Gyaamah. Growing in Kwadaso Estate which is a community in Kumasi, she lived with strict parents who made it a point to keep her under strict guidance and care. Her immediate companions were always siblings as parents made sure she wasn’t exposed much to outside influence right from school.
Born to Mr. Kwaku Duah Berchie (a financial analyst) and Mrs Agnes Afua Mensa (Business woman), she attended Little Angels School in Kumasi and continued her education at Kay-Billie-Klaer International School (East Legon)and furthered on to Accra Grammar School (Oyibi). Music started for her as a result of her attending Sunday school which is most common among growing children in Ghana. She was a member of ICGC Open Heavens Temple at the age of 7 and started writing songs at 8. The passion for music grew up from there.
The genre of music she later got acquinated with was the reggae/dancehall genre. In her own words, writing her own songs and singing them makes her different from the other artistes already in the business.
Gyaamah’s mission in the industry is to change the perception that it is only male dominated and also females can also do better. Her inspiration in the music industry is American female songstress and songwriter Alicia Keys.
She is an independent act who is not signed to any label yet. She finds inspiration from writing and singing to herself. Seeing no one as competition in this business, she is here to set her own trend and fly the flag of Ghana very high.
Her advice to up and coming acts in Ghana is to put God first in everything they do and all other things will be added to them. Her first international feature she wishes for is with Burna Boy.
