Afrobeats singer, Gyakie, says her worst moment since she started her music career was when she was booed off stage at an event at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
The singer, who graduated from the university this year, disclosed this in an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM’s mid-morning show Ayekoo Ayekoo on Thursday, 26 May 2022.
My worst moment was the first time I performed on campus, KNUST; I had just dropped my first song, ‘Love is pretty’. It was Republic Hall Week, one of the biggest hall-week celebrations on campus … I was part of the new acts that went to perform.
“So, I was going to perform my song, I was quite nervous but had some confidence.
“So, I go on stage, I’m performing; as usual, they’ll just be looking at your face … they didn’t know the song but because it was a reggae song, they were just bobbing to it and… the sound system just went off, my mic was not working, nothing was playing and I was just on stage and then they were just clapping and some of them were like: ‘Away!’ and then I was just there and I had to leave, went backstage, I cried but people came to give me words of encouragement,” she recounted.
