Ghanaian RnB singer Jackline Acheampong also known as Gyakie said there is less unity among female artistes in the Ghanaian entertainment industry while the males are more united.
Speaking in an interview on The Afrobeat Podcast on YouTube, the award-winning singer said that she wished there were more females in the music and entertainment industry.
According to Gyakie who performed at the Vodafone Ghana Music Award’s big stage on May 6, 2023, there is less unity among the women, making it difficult to work as a female musician.
“When you are about to perform and you go to the backstage only to see the big boys, you just have to chill and remain in your cute corner.
If not for anything, there should be more women in the industry for backstage purposes,” she added.
Gyakie talks about her relationship with other female artistes
The singer shared her experience with some female artistes in Ghana and Nigeria and said that singers like Tems, Arya, Becca, Tiwa Savage, Efya and many more are artistes she relates well with.
She added that people assume that there is jealousy among female artistes but it is always a great vibe when they meet each other.
