Ghanaian music sensation Jackline Acheampong, popularly known by her stage name Gyakie has made some revelations about her past when she started out as a musician.
Gyakie said she was booed off stage at a Republic Hall week concert at her own university.
While still an upcoming artiste in 2019, Gyakie said she begged organisers of the 2019 Republic Hall Week to perform on stage.
The Repu Hall week celebration is one of the top two most attended Hall week celebrations in Ghana. The 2019 concert was headlined by Stonebwoy, Yaa Pono, La Meme Gang and other artistes.
Gyakie’s dream to get some attention to her craft at the concert before the main acts arrive ended in tears after she was booed off stage when the sound system went off.
Gyakie went of stage broken hearted. She revealed in an interview that she cried her heart out after the experience.
“I cried, I really cried when I went backstage because what I was going to do didn’t go the way I wanted,” she said.
She added that some of the students shouted at her to go away while some sung along. She said the experience helped her build resilience in her music career.
