Gyakie and Flip the Music label ink worldwide deal with Sony Music/RCA Records UK

Published

on

Ghanaian singer-songwriter Gyakie (real name Jacqueline Acheampong) together with her team Flip the Music, are proud to announce their international record deal with Sony Music Entertainment, RCA Records UK and Sony Music Africa, which enlists Sony Music West Africa as the home office with Sony Music East and South Africa all on deck.

 

Off the back of the success of “Forever Remix featuring Omah Lay”, Gyakie’s immense strides in the industry as an Afrobeats force have been difficult to ignore, and as the daughter of Ghanaian highlife legend Nana Acheampong of the legendary Lumba Brothers, her musical roots run deep.

 

Taking to their Instagram to announce the signing, RCA UK posted “Incoming! Gyakie is now part of the RCA UK family!”

 

“I am excited to join RCA/Sony Music International with my label Flip the Music on my journey to become a global superstar,” Gyakie told Ghanaian-based Music Channel 4SYTE TV.

 

Flip the Music President and founder Emmanuel “Electro Mirror” Sedo added, “We are thrilled to join the Sony Music family! Gyakie has become a superstar on African music scene and we have no doubt this partnership will propel her onto the international music scene. We are eager for the journey ahead.”

 

Flip The Music is a Ghanaian-owned record label that engages in music marketing and management and was established in 2020, the same year they signed Gyakie.

 

In a short space of time Gyakie has achieved massive success with singles “Love Is Pretty” (2019), “Never Like This” (2019) and “Sor Mi Wu feat Bisa Kdei” (2020), all of which embody the characteristic of a deep soul, blending R&B and neo-soul elements with Afrobeats sensibilities.

 

But it was her debut EP release SEED that really set her apart from her contemporaries, amassing 11 million cumulative streams across streaming services to date. With the EP’s lead single “Forever” peaking at #1 in Nigeria and Ghana on the music charts, and continuing its takeover on Apple Music & iTunes, Billboard, Shazam, Triller and YouTube, Gyakie is poised to take the music scene by storm

Published

on

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
