Ghanaian award winning female musician, Gyakie has once again put Ghana on the map by becoming the first Ghanaian artist to be featured on Apple Music’s Home Session series. 

This session by Apple is a special series started during Lockdown, where artists are encouraged to record from their homes, reimagined stripped back versions of some of their songs including a cover of any other song of their choice

For her session, Gyakie performed three songs off her “My Diary” EP. She sang a Reggae version of her soulful song, “Far Away” and on “For My Baby”, she reimagined a sweet clean version of the Highlife song before switching “Waka Waka” into an exciting Rock cover.

As a nod to one of her influences: Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall artist, Samini formerly known as Batman Samini, Gyakie performed a smooth cover of his hit song, “Where My Baby Dey”, a known and adored song by Ghanaians. On why she selected these songs, the Flip The Music signed artist is quoted by Apple Music saying “These songs are special to me because of how soulful they are.”

Reflecting on the impact the COVID-19 outbreak’s lockdown had on her career, she added that: “Lockdown taught me to work twice as much as usual. I also tapped into different things to broaden my creativity. I learnt to believe in my sound more and work expeditiously. I also got to learn new things that I have applied in my writing, recording and my craft as a whole.”
