I predicted last summer that music emerging from the African continent would (finally) begin to garner more mainstream exposure across the rest of the globe, and it looks like I might just be right.
Ghanaian music starlet Gyaki’s blissful mid-tempo love song ‘NEED ME’ follows the release of debut EP ‘SEED’, which included ‘Forever’ – one of the biggest afrobeat tracks of this year (garnering millions of cumulative streams worldwide).
“‘Need Me’ is a love song. This song goes out to people that are willing to sacrifice everything for the people they love. The people that are always available for the ones they love. This song is powerful, it’s a song for the heart and the message that is being sent out is that ‘love is a beautiful thing, and if you happen to find love, enjoy the most out of it’. I’m very excited about this release because it’s been a year since I dropped music and I know my fans have been yearning for it. It’s finally here and I believe it’s going to be another global wave!”
