SOUL artiste, Gyakie, has dethroned RuffTown signed artiste Wendy Shay to become the most subscribed to female artiste in Ghana on Audiomack with over 35,000 followers. Gyakie is a budding musician whose familial connection to a Ghanaian great – Nana Acheampong, one-half of the famous Lumba Brothers, has had a strong influence on her love for music from a young age, and on her becoming the fledgling musician she is today.
In August 2020, Gyakie dropped her debut project, a 5-track EP simply titled Seed. The cover artwork of the EP is a photo that shows her as a child, wearing studio headphones and posing in the recording booth alongside her father—a visual which could easily be taken as a bold index finger pointing right at the family business.
According to the afro-fusion singer, the Seed EP is a journey that explores diverse genres as a reflection of her musical quest of finding and staying true to herself, while leaving lingering thoughts of what to expect from her in subsequent projects. Seed is short but sweet, and does just that. The EP is full of different sounds that give you just a taste of what she is capable of and what to expect on her journey, which has only just begun.
