With her debut EP hot on its heels, burgeoning Ghanaian singer/songwriter, Gyakie unveils the cover art for her forthcoming EP, ”SEED”. The 5-track EP is scheduled for release later this year.
Gyakie took to social media to gist fans about her incoming EP while unveiling its artwork. Her tweet read:
”Hi… #SEED EP takes the listener on a sonic trip via my experiences. Being who I am gives me a great duty I never expected. I’m in a place where I have to pick between conforming and staying true to my original self. Kindly stay with me and patiently wait on this”.
See the tweet below:
The released cover art comes in a polaroid frame and depicts a dated portrait of three. Therein (from left to right), lies Gyakie’s dad, herself and her kid brother, Justin. The trio are situated in a studio, with the latter two fitted with headsets. Lovers of retro Ghanaian songs may get the hint right off the bat. To those who can’t, Gyakie’s dad is seemingly Nana Acheampong aka “Champion Lover Boy”! A highlife legend and the other half of the Lumba Brothers with the legendary Daddy Lumba. Some hits by her dad include; ‘Casanova’, ‘Kata W’ani Te’, ‘Obibini Mu Obibini’ and ‘I Go Die 4 U’ among others.
Having burst into the Ghanaian music scene over a year ago, the ever-rising songbird boasts of quite an impressive catalogue of singles within her very short time. She’s spun hit singles like, ‘Control’, ‘Sor Mi Mu’, the recently released ‘Nana Nyame’ and ‘Never Like This’; arguably her biggest record yet! Gyakie made her first impression with a song titled, ‘Love Is Pretty’ and has since gone on a solid run, working with top guns like E.L, Bisa Kdei and Kuvie along the way.
