Ghanaian singer, Gyakie has won the award for the Best West African Artiste at Nigeria’s Headies Awards.

At the Awards show held last night at the COBB Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, USA, the “Forever” hitmaker beat her category mates: KiDi (Ghana), Amaarae(Ghana), Angelique Kidjo (Benin), Aya Nakamura (Mali) and Nelson Freitas (Cape Verde).

Gyakie has been on a winning streak since the release of her debut project, SEED EP and her growing impact on the music scene in Africa is subtle yet impressive. A few weeks ago, The Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA) presented a double Platinum Certification Plaque to the singer for her breakthrough single “Forever” meaning, over 40 000 units of the single were sold in the South African Market.
