Last week Gyakie was announced as a member of the YouTube Black Voices Class of 2023. The Black Voices Fund is a YouTube initiative meant to empower hundreds of creators and music artists from all around the world. The purpose is to celebrate Black joy and elevate authentic stories on YouTube. Gyakie is the only female Ghanaian artist and joins Juls, Asake, and many more as part of the BVF class of 2023.
She was also named Pandora’s Next and is currently preparing her headline show: “Party Live with Gyakie” happening December 16, 2022. This would be the second time the artist is headlining her show in Accra; obviously, this time would be an entirely different experience. Last year, at what was dubbed the “Live Experience with Gyakie”, the Afro-Fusion artist thrilled fans at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel for a night of amazing live music from the songstress and many guest artists including a first-time memorable performance with her dad, Ghanaian Highlife legend, Nana Acheampong.
