Afrobeat singer, Jackeline Acheampong, better known as Gyakie has told that Ghanaian musicians just need to do music and take Ghana music to the world.

She said this during an interview appearance on BBC Africa. She described herself and interpreted her music.

In her words:

We’re Outside! Freedom and justice Accra, Ghana. You know the vibes already.
Hey hey, this is Gyakie, Ghanaian afro-fusion singer and songwriter. I’d described my music as versatile. I put together different sounds. Which connects with the African sounds, and my music always connects with the people. When I’m recording music, I always want the place to be dark. Like I’m alone, so I can be able to imagine properly what I want the lyrics to be about.

Moreover, she heartily described her dad;

My dad is a High Life legend from Ghana. Nana Acheampong. He has recorded in the country for selling over two million copies of his hit song, Nanka Ebeye Den.

Growing up was actually exciting, amazing because my dad takes me to studio. I actually have a song when I was six years old. That song will come out soon. And so, m dad has taught me a lot and I’m very proud to be his daughter.

She talked about combining music and school.

Juggling music and school is not easy at all, but I’m doing this for myself. And then I’m also doing this for the young ones or any young person that wants to be creative, that wants to accomplish a goal.
That, even if it’s difficult, it is very possible for you to juggle the two.

“Forever l” remix is out, and we did it Omar Lay, Nigeria superstar. We sent him the song and he sent back his verse in about two hours. We shot the video in Nigeria. And then we bought a banged!
We bought a banger!

She revealed that she’s not under any pressure in the music business.

There is no pressure, at all from any angle in relation to my music. I don’t it’s actually really right to compare artists, especially artists that have paved ways for some upcoming artists like myself and others. I feel like we just need to do music and take Ghana music to the world. And then we can all win together.
