Ghanaian singer, Jacqueline Acheampong, popularly known as Gyakie, has shared the ‘rituals’ she and her team undergo ahead of her song releases.
Gyakie, who has two successful projects and won awards for multiple hit singles including her all-time hit, ‘Forever’, has transparently revealed her winning formulae in releasing hit songs.
Speaking in a recent interview, Gyakie said she and her team make sure to fast and pray before releasing any song and that has been their secret to multiple hits.
She pegged her success in the music industry to the strong spirituality of her team and praised God for her achievements so far in the industry.
“One thing we don’t joke with is fasting and prayers. I wouldn’t say all the releases, I think that most of the songs that come out whenever we do remember we do fast towards it,” Gyakie revealed.
“Everybody on my team is very religious and that is one thing I’m very grateful to God for. “There is also a lot of hard work that is also done to push whatever song is coming out,” Gyakie stressed.
The singer also spoke about her journey to stardom saying she hid her talent behind self-doubt and fear of rejection till she had her first hit.
“I was nervous at the beginning but when I saw the people were excited to see me then I said to myself we are in for the fun, and it made me so happy till the end of my performance and the entire show,” she shared the experience.
“I have a soft side and there have been times when everything just feels too much for you as a person. Immediately you come into the camera and show yourself to the world, people see you as a machine and don’t see you as a human with emotions so they just say things and don’t imagine how the person is going to feel about it,” Gyakie said.
