“I cried when I got booed off stage” – Singer, Gyakie
Gyakie, a Ghanaian musician, has described being booed off stage at a concert on the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) campus as the worst moment of her career.
On Thursday, May 26th, 2022, the ‘My Mind Dey For You’ hitmaker disclosed the embarrassing situation to Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM’s mid-morning show Ayekoo Ayekoo.
“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”, she recalled.
“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 narrated.
