Multiple award-winning Ghanaian Songbird, Jackline Acheampong better known as Gyakie has disclosed that she never aimed to become a musician but rather an entrepreneur.
According to her, her dream of becoming an entrepreneur motivated her to pursue International Business at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), where her music career took off.
The “Forever” hitmaker recounted during an interview with Berla Mundi on The Day Show, how her career began after she had met her producer, Sosa on the KNUST campus through a friend.
“So before I got into the university because that’s where everything started for me. Before I went to KNUST I just wanted to be an entrepreneur, I wanted to get money so I studied International Business in KNUST until I met my producer, Sosa on campus through a friend,” Gyakie revealed.
Gyakie adds that shortly after their initial meeting, Sosa sent her a beat, which ended up becoming her first single on streaming platforms. She became aware of her songwriting ability as soon as she began to listen to the beat.
“Never Like This,” a song she wrote, was made available on music streaming platforms for the first time.
The fast-rising musician has since released a series of hits including “Something” and his recent song “Rent Free” which is already making waves across social media platforms.
