Kaakie, whose real name is GRACE KAKIE AWO OCANSEY, was discovered through a Ghanaian TV Reality Show called “Stars Of The Future” where she was initially ‘dropped’ (she had the 5th position); but with that notwithstanding, she had the opportunity to meet up with renowned Ghanaian record producer, JMJ Baby (Joshua Raphaelson) in May 2011. After careful review of this young talent (Kaakie) by JMJ Baby, she got signed to the Producer’s record label (Xtra Large Music) officially on July 1, 2012.
After she got signed onto the label, she dropped her debut single “Ewoo” which took the nation by surprise when it turned into a classic hit within a month after release. Big Ghanaian acts, Samini and Stonebwoy, could not stand ‘the magic’ than to also jump on the same song to do remix versions of “Ewoo” which were titled “Papistic” (Samini & Kaakie), “More Pon More” (Stonewboy & Kaakie) and “Latex” with Edem.
Just when many thought Kaakie’s entry into the game was a “flash in a pan”, she dropped her second joint called “Too Much” which shot up to international prominence – even more than “Ewoo” – which she released earlier.
After dropping “Too Much” also produced by JMJ Baby, Kaakie had the opportunity to share stage with big Jamaican international singjay, Mavado on October 8, 2012 at the Accra Sports Stadium which pulled over 18,000 audience.
Just like Italian wine, Kaakie kept improving with time dropping hit by hit. So far, she has released 9 songs prior to her debut album launch scheduled for January 2013. Concurrently, she has released “Ewoo”, “Too Much”, “Toffee Pon Tongue”, “Top Gyal Time”, “DC Tun Up”, “Zuuchia”, “Designer Bumper” [Xtra Large Riddim], “Radio” and her very latest club banger “Koom Koom Cha”.
Kaakie aka “Queen Diva” has performed on prominent stages such as “Mavado Line In Ghana Concert’’, “Ghana Rocks Concert 2011”, “A Night Of 1013 Laughs”, ‘‘Resolution 2012 Concert – featuring Busy Signal & Kiprich”, “Vodafone Ghana Music Awards”, “Stand Up GH Concert – featuring Keri Hilson & Bow Wow”, “Ghana Meets Naija 2012 Concert” AND the “Demarco Live In Ghana Concert”.
Kaakie’s songs by the records are on heavy rotation by DJs and Radio Stations across USA, Canada, the UK, Spain, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Sweden, Lebanon, Israel and a lot more.
