Gyakie spills truth on her journey to fame

Ghanaian singer and songwriter, Jackline Acheampong, popularly known as Gyakie, recently opened up about her journey to fame in the Ghanaian music industry during an interview on Luv FM’s DriveTimeOnLuv show with Melvin Da Enigma.

The talented artist revealed that she initially did not pay much attention to her voice until she gained enthusiasm when her first song caught the public’s attention. Growing up in a strict environment with her father, the legendary Nana Acheampong, Gyakie had the opportunity to accompany him to the studio and concerts, but she never saw herself following in his footsteps until she met music producer SOSA at KNUST.

According to Gyakie, her encounter with SOSA was transformative, as it revealed her hidden talent for writing lyrics and singing. Her breakthrough song, ‘Never Like This’, garnered widespread popularity in Ghana, paving the way for her to release her first EP, SEED, which further solidified her presence in the Ghanaian music scene.

Despite her father’s early skepticism about her career choice, Gyakie’s success eventually won him over, and she received overwhelming support for her music. However, the singer admitted to facing social media backlash, emphasizing the need to prioritize self-care and mental well-being over external pressures.

In terms of relationships, Gyakie shared that she has yet to find the right partner but highlighted the qualities she looks for in a man, including hygiene, good conversation skills, and a sense of humor. Additionally, she discussed her latest song, “DECEMBER”, which delves into themes of disappointment and self-acceptance.

Offering advice to her fans, Gyakie encouraged them not to succumb to societal pressures, especially on social media, and to focus on their individual journeys at their own pace.
