Published

on

 The journey of life began for this wonderful young woman on the 11th day of 

February, 2001 in Akumadan- Afrancho, a local community in the Ashanti Region of 

Ghana to Christian parents who double as teachers; a perfect combination that really 

had a great impact on the upbringing and early life of this music icon, Akania.

She had her early childhood education in Afrancho and moved to Akumadan Senior 

High School to undertake a three year study as a Science Student; this is where the 

story changed.

In Akumadan, she was discovered by Blue Ice Entertainment headed by Otoo of 

Otoo Comedy fame in 2019 and was known as “Spyci”.

Under Blue Ice Entertainment, Akania, then Spyci, released one song dubbed, “Be 

Pem” which literally means, Come And Hit.

After the release, much was not heard from the then Spyci until in 2020 when the 

news broke out that her contract under the label had been terminated and her name 

Spyci taken off by the label since it was the label that gave her that name.

AKANIA DID NOT GIVE UP! With the help of some few industry Giants from 

Kintampo ( Fearless Promotions, Falcon Music, etc.),She immediately rebranded, 

used her own Surname as her stage name and dished out a masterpiece, 

Something bigger, better and way touching than her previous song.

It was this masterpiece that announced her stay, dominance and uniqueness in the 

music world.

This song shot her off and opened several opportunities for her; She called that 

song, “Me Ba”

After the release of Me ba, Akania did not relent, she brilliantly did her own rendition 

(cover) of Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall Songstress, Koffee’s popular song, Rapture.

Her version of Rapture shocked her fans, her fellow musicians and the entire music 

fraternity; indeed, “Rapture” paved the way even broader.

She kept hitting stage after stage!

One thing that is very unique about AKANIA is her stage energy; she is a performer 

indeed.

Her dancing skills and stage craft really sets her apart- her ability to entertain and 

cheer the crowd has made her the best performer, show after show.

Currently, Akania is more or less managed by ace blogger, YUNG KASA of TEAMWOORD RECORDS.

The touch of TEAMWOORD RECORDS has really sparked up the brand, Akania.

Akania, is one of the few artistes who have their songs all over digital stores across the globe.
