- Ghanaian singer Gyakie is billed for the MTV Base YouTube African Day Concert
- The concert would see top acts from around the world especially Africa gracing the stage
- Gyakie would be the only Ghanaian to perform at this year's event
Sensational Ghana Afrobeat star, Jackline Acheampong, famed as Gyakie has been announced as one of the main performers for MTV Base YouTube African day Concert.
The Flip the Music/Sony Music UK act will be the only Ghanaian act billed for the Concert.
The highly anticipated global event is set to put Africa’s next global wave of talent centre stage at this year’s concert.
The event will also see performances from South Africa’s Elaine, rapper Focalistic, rap duo Blaq Diamond, Nigerian singer Teni, Afrobeat stars Bella Shmurda Omah Lay, Suspect 95 from the Ivory Coast, Kenya’s Bahati, and Tanzania’s Zuchu.
The virtual concert will be hosted by award-winning Idris Elba and it will be streamed to a global audience on YouTube and broadcast across MTV channels.
Gyakie debuted on the music scene in 2019. Erstwhile, she had only been known as the daughter to Ghanaian high life music legend, Nana Acheampong who was one-half of the famous Lumba Brothers.
Having borne witness to the building of a successful legacy during her formative years, she’s now put all that training into practice to become a certified superstar today.
In what might seem like a short while, Gyakie has released high-impact music including Love Is Pretty (2019), Never Like This (2019), and Sor Mi Wu feat Bisa Kdei (2020) to mention a few, all of which embody the characteristic of a deep soul.
The reception for the SEED EP was incredible as it was massive too. It catapulted Gyakie to continental consciousness amassing 11 million cumulative streams across DSPs to date.
Also, the focus track Forever recorded a streak of wins; it was peaked at #1 in Nigeria and Ghana on the music charts and continued its takeover assignment across Africa on platforms like Apple Music & iTunes, Billboard, Shazam, Triller, and YouTube.
Speaking about Ghanaian musicians, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that multiple award-winning Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has thrown a jab in the way of Nigerian artiste Davido over the latter flaunting his new car online.
In a subtle attack, Shatta Wale accused Davido of flaunting his dad's wealth and making people on social media believe it was his own money.
The Taking Over hitmaker said unlike Davido, he (Shatta Wale) was known to have made his own money and was spending it on his own terms.
