Fast-rising Kumasi-based AFRO-fusion musician, Jacklin Acheampong, professionally known as Gyakie, has said that her name and music have gained prominence at the Flagstaff House, the presidential palace in Accra that serves as a residence and office to the President of Ghana.
Speaking in an interview with Akoma FM’s Tony Best on Kwantenpon Drive on Thursday, April 8, Gyakie was asked whether or not she saw the First Lady’s tweet to her husband on his 77th birthday.
Happy Birthday Mr. President.❤️

Responding to what that tweet meant to her, Gyakie said that she was extremely excited and becomes so anytime she sees that her music is making a huge impact.
Asked whether or not there has been an invitation from the First Lady, she answered in the negative.
“I have not personally had any invitations yet neither has my management mentioned it, but one thing I know for sure is that my name is gallivanting in the Flagstaff House as we speak. Ask the First Lady about me and she will tell you she has heard of my music,” Gyakie said.
Recently collaborating with Nigerian star boy Omalay on her Forever song remix, Gyakie still looks forward to featuring a lot more Ghanaian musicians like Sarkodie, Efya, Samini, and more.
