Fast-rising Ghanaian singer-songwriter, Jackeline Acheampong, aka Gyakie took to Twitter few days ago to announce her forthcoming project. Titled ‘SEED’, the 5-track EP is scheduled for release later this year to the excitement of many.
For her big reveal, Gyakie expressed in a tweet: ”#SEED is different and experimental. It’s more of me snapping out of my space into a more challenging one”.
Having burst onto the Ghanaian music scene over a year ago, the burgeoning songbird boasts of quite an impressive catalogue of relative hit singles within a very short time: ‘Control’, ‘Sor Mi Mu’, the recently released ‘Nana Nyame’ and ‘Never Like This’; arguably her biggest record yet!
Gyakie made her first impression with single, ‘Love Is Pretty’ and has since gone on a solid run, working with top guns like E.L, Bisa Kdei and Kuvie. In the space of a year, the act has garnered over 1M organic streams with just 5 singles, a feature and cover song on Audiomack, as well as hundreds of thousands more on Spotify and Apple Music, among others. Referring to more feats by the songstress, Gyakie was once a guest on BBC’s ”Focus On Africa”, featured on Red Bull South Africa and Nigeria’s One Tribe magazine, made it on Kuulpeeps’ ”2020 EMERGERS” list, and earned a nomination in the 2020 VGMA ”Unsung Artist”.
Managed by FLIP THE MUSIC, Gyakie is a talented singer whose transparency makes it clear that she draws her artistic inspiration from genuine moments of extreme emotion and experiences of people around her. Gyakie believes African music is a global sound and wants to use her gift as a way of shaping the culture, all with a touch of versatility.
