Everyone knows who Gyakie’s father is — multiple award-winning musician Nana Acheampong. But very little is known about the mother of the fast-rising singer who has taken Africa by storm.
Gyakie’s mother is called Maria Adjoa Banda, and according to the singer, he mother is the driving force behind her success.
In a recent interview with Joy News, Gyakie — real name Jackline Acheampong — stated that her mother saw the talent in her first–at a tender age, and pushed her to do music professionally.
“One thing about my mum is, she saw what I had, that I didn’t know I had. So back in my junior and senior high school days, she would call me to sing to entertain her family members whenever they come by the house. Back then, I saw it as a bother, but now I have seen how those short performances groomed me into what we are all seeing now,” she said.
Meanwhile, blogger ZionFelix has shared a recent photo of Gyakie’s mother hanging out with him a friend on social media. Maria Banda looked gorgeous despite donning regular outfit and without makeup.
