One of the fast-rising Ghanaian musicians has opened up about her three-year journey in the music industry.
According to Gyakie, it has not been an easy road.
She told JoyNews’ Becky that the public might link her success to having an accomplished musician as a father but the story is different.
“This hasn’t been an easy road. People think because my dad is Nana Acheampong it has been a smooth one but he wanted me to feel how it’s like to start from the bottom and penetrate the industry.”
Jackline Acheampong known professionally as Gyakie is a Ghanaian afrobeat/afro singer.
In 2019, Gyakie released her first single titled; “Love is Pretty” which paved way for another single, “Never Like This.”
In August 2020, the “Forever” song from her five-track EP, titled “Seed” was her claim to fame; enjoying airplay and leading charts in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria. Gyakie’s father is Nana Acheampong.
Gyakie completed T.I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School in Kumasi and is now an undergraduate student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). She is studying International Business.
