Jackline Acheampong, popularly known as Gyakie, has held an exclusive listening session for her new project, ‘My Diary’EP.
The Song Bird surprised her fans by performing songs from her ‘My Diary’ EP on Thursday, July 21 in Accra. This event was prior to the EP release.
The 6-track EP revealed a feature collaboration with the Nigerian hitmaker, Davido.
Speaking at the event, Gyakie narrated how her song collaboration with Davido titled, ‘Flames’ came to fruition.
According to her, the collaboration was unexpected.
“Around I think April, I ended up going to David’s place, and we were playing unreleased songs, having a musical session. So, apparently, the ‘Flames’ was actually not on the project. So, the project has just five songs with no collaboration. And then when we played a lot of the songs, he actually liked this very song so much, he said he was going to jump on it, and then we ended up putting it on the EP. That was so last minute. And this is actually very huge for me because we all know he’s an African superstar OB.“
She continued: “And I actually didn’t expect it to happen just right now, do you get it? So, looking back at how far everything has been for me, having Davido on the EP is like a big big deal for me. And I’m so proud. And I’m very appreciative of the fact that he actually jumped of the song and then we actually ended up with something amazing.“
Musicians, TV personalities, bloggers, fans, and Gyakie’s management team came out to support.
