Ghanaian singer, Gyakie won Best West African Artiste of the year at Nigeria’s Headies Award in a wonderful ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia, United States on 4th September 2022.
At the Awards show held last night at the COBB Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, USA, the “Forever” hitmaker beat her category mates: KiDi (Ghana), Amaarae(Ghana), Angelique Kidjo (Benin), Aya Nakamura (Mali) and Nelson Freitas (Cape Verde).
Gyakie has been on a winning streak since the release of her debut project, SEED EP and her growing impact on the music scene in Africa is subtle yet impressive. A few weeks ago, The Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA) presented a double Platinum Certification Plaque to the singer for her breakthrough single “Forever” meaning, over 40 000 units of the single were sold in the South African Market.
The Headies Awards is Nigeria’s biggest and most anticipated music awards show and the Best West African Artist category is for artists of West African descent with the most outstanding achievements and impact across Africa in the year under review.
Recently, Gyakie released an EP “My Dairy” which is doing so well on digital platforms. Songs likes Waka Waka, Something, Far Away, For My Baby, Audience, and Flames are beautiful pieces on her EP.
