Gyakie's reaction to video

Prior to their meeting at the album listening, Gyakie, who is known in real life as Jackeline Acheampong, had reacted to allegations of her deliberately snubbing the rapper.

Way to go

While Gyakie had suggested there was nothing wrong between there were some people who were skeptical.

But their meet-up at the R2Bees event seems to have confirmed Gyakie's assertion and entertainment writer Owusu Worae thinks it is a good development.

According to Worae who is the head of entertainment news at TV3, the two are young artistes on the rise and do not need to taint their brands with controversy.

"Gyakie and Yaw Tog have been on the top stage for a little over a year now. They are doing very will and it will not be prudent for them to be engaging in unnecessary controversies," he said.

For him, it serves to benefit the two artistes if they come together and support each other rather than 'beef'.

"The way to go is to bring their energies together to support each other. It is thus a good move that they have tried to deal with the viral video and prove that they are cool," he added.
