@gyakie_

As  the  only  Ghanaian  female  artist  to  perform  on  the  Global  Citizen  Festival  stage  at  the  Black  Star  Square  last  night,  Gyakie  did  an  incredible  job  representing  the  country  and  doing  her  part  in  being  a  contributing  voice  for  global  change. 

 

 

The  fast-rising  singer  started  her  performance  with  the  reggae  song  Waka  Waka  off  her  recently  released  My  Diary  EP.  An  unlikely  song  intro  to  her  performance,  Gyakie  delivered  an  amazing  live  rendition  of  the  song  with  the  help  of  the  Ghana  Army  Regimental  Band  while  the  Ghana  flag  and  branded  Gyakie  flags  were  waved  behind  her:  A  statement  of  who  she  is  and  where  she  is  from. 




 

 

Fitting  that  she  is  referred  to  as  Queen  by  people  in  the  industry  and  her  fans,  Gyakie  showed  up  on  stage,  resplendent  in  a  bedazzled  outfit  by  Ellanore  Official,  thrilling  fans  with  Far  Away  and  her  hit  single,  Forever  the  remix,  before  ending  with  her  current  hit,  Something.  You  could  tell  Gyakie’s  band,  backing  vocalists  and  instrumentalists  were  testament  to  the  fact  that  she  has  come  a  long  way  since  her  very  first  performance  as  an  artist,  and  the  future  is  promising  on  what  she  is  capable  of  in  the  coming  years.

 

 

In  a  statement  from  the  Songbird  on  stage,  Gyakie  revealed  the  source  of  her  consistency,  hard  work  and  achievements  were  the  young  girls  around  the  world,  who  look  up  to  her.  She  said:  “Before  I  do  anything,  I  try  to  picture  two  or  three  girls  that  look  up  to  me.  I  have  their  faces  etched  in  my  mind  as  a  reminder  of  my  responsibility  to  show  up  in  a  way  that  inspires  them  and  lets  them  know  they  can  be  anything  they  want  to  be,  no  matter  the  odds  against  them.”

 

 

The  Global  Citizen  Festival  is  the  world’s  longest-running  global  campaign  calling  for  an  end  to  extreme  poverty.  Through  the  Festival,  the  organization  brings  together  millions  of  people  to  amplify  the  message  to  #EndPovertyNow  and  this  year,  in  celebrating  10  years  of  impacting  change,  the  event  was  split  into  two  locations:  Accra  and  New  York  with  artists  like  Sza,  Usher,  Tems,  Sarkodie,  Stormzy  and  Stonebwoy  performing  while  dignitaries  from  around  the  world  including  His  Excellency  President  Akuffo-Addo  delivered  speeches  calling  for  leaders  and  persons  around  the  world  to  take  action  to  #EndPovertyNow.
