Gyakie’s musical credibility continues to go from strength to strength after winning Best West African Artist at the 2022 Headies Awards at the COBB Power Performing Arts Heart in Atlanta, USA last night.

The daughter of legendary Ghanaian musician Nana Acheampong beat fierce competitors from KiDi (Ghana), Amaarae (Ghana), Angelique Kidjo (Benin), Aya Nakamura (Mali) and Nelson Freitas (Cape Verde).

Similarly, the Recording Trade Association of South Africa (RiSA) awarded the singer’s breakthrough single “Without end” a double-platinum certification plaque, meaning over 40,000 models were purchased in the South African market.

The Headies (originally known as the Hip Hop World Awards) are music awards created by the Nigerian magazine Hip Hop World in 2006 to recognize outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry.
