Talented Ghanaian singer-songwriter Gyakie connects with highly revered Nigerian Afrobeat artiste Davido for ‘Flames,’ the fourth track housed under her sophomore studio project ‘My Diary’
Her second EP, MY DIARY, which comes after her maiden EP, 2020’s Seed, shows more facets of her personality. I’m talking about experiences I’ve had, things I might not have said out, she claims. “I discuss a variety of topics, including my journey and current circumstances. It’s like a peek inside my life, and my fans get to join me there.
Gyakie described the process of recording “Flames” as follows:
“I’m so honoured to have Davido on my project. I know for a fact that him being on this song, in particular, is going to spark so many things up. ‘FLAMES’ is a love song as well. This is like the girl or the guy telling the lover they are not going to leave their side—they’re going to stay with them. The initial song didn’t have Davido on it. I got the chance to actually meet him, and then I played a couple of unreleased songs for him. That was his favourite of it. Straight up, when he was starting to record, I literally went to the bathroom to cry. I couldn’t believe that I was in the same space with him. I was like, ‘This has to be a dream. If it’s a dream, I don’t want to get out.’”
