GYAKIE PROFILE

BIOGRAPHY

Gyakie real name Jackeline Acheampong is a Ghanaian afro-fusion / afrobeat singer from Kumasi. She is the daughter of Ghana’s music legend Ernest ‘Owoahene’ Nana Acheampong, popularly known as Nana Acheampong, one-half of the famous Lumba Brothers. She is managed by music management and record label company, FLIP THE MUSIC.

She grew up in Kumasi, Ghana, during a musical era where Soul Music reigned. She has drawn inspiration from other soul artists such as Asa, Efya, Burna Boy, and Rihanna as being the top musicians. The vocalist began her music career in early 2019 while still a student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. She pursued a bachelor degree in International Business. 

In August 2020, Gyakie dropped her debut project, a 5-track EP simply titled ‘Seed’. The cover artwork of the EP was a photo that shows her childhood, wearing studio headphones and posing in the recording booth alongside her father, Nana Acheampong—a visual which could easily be taken as a bold index finger pointing right at the family business. Although that assertion might be correct, she’s not exactly here to carry on the family legacy as Gyakie aims to chart her own course, maintaining her own identity as an individual and a musician, while expressing herself in the art form she loves most.

Gyakie released her first-ever single; “Love is Pretty” back in February 2019 and preceded to release, “Never Like This.” Reiterating from above, she released the Seed EP  which also features “Forever”. The “Forever” track on the Seed EP enjoyed massive airplay in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria. It topped music charts such as Billboard’s Top Thriller Global and Shazams Top 200 charts.

Gyakie released a remix of “Forever” which featured Nigerian singer Omah Lay in March 2021 which is counting million after million views on YouTube.
