Gyakie, a fast-rising Ghanaian singer and composer whose real name is Jackeline Acheampong, has claimed that the VGMA plaque makes her believe her efforts are worthwhile.
The afrobeats hit was just heard on Kastle FM in Cape Coast. She discussed some incredible encounters she’s had since winning her first VGMA award.
Her popular song, “Forever Remix,” which was published in 2021 and featured Nigerian artist Omah Lay, won “International Collaboration Of The Year” at the 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
“Winning the VGMA shows that anything that I bring out is intended to be nothing but the biggest since the VGMA award makes you get notice,” she stated, revealing how outstanding she has been since then.
“Being nominated for and earning honors makes me believe like waking up to see the plaque in my bed reminds me that the work I’m doing is making progress, so I should keep doing it,” she explained.
Gyakie also told the host about the impact the award has made in her career. She said it makes people acknowledge and appreciate her craft.
“You get people who have never heard of you to hear of you and besides the awards given to the artistes also make the artiste realize that the work you are doing is worth it so you’re being commended for that,” she said.
