Kaakie, after winning the fully surprised “Raggae/ Dancehall Song Of The Year Award” dedicates to all the victims of maternal mortality. Kaakie pulled up a great surprise within her tight category. But, it’s a clear exhibition of his remarkable performance since the middle of last year.
Award winning female Dancehall artiste Kaakie seem to have taken the maternal health conversation to a bigger platform as she dedicated all the awards she won last night at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards to the nearly four thousand (4,000) women that die annually from maternal health related Kaakie, who earlier in the year announced her decision to tackle Maternal Health issues through an awareness campaign that will simultaneously run with her 5-city tour on stage stated that “Maternal health is a serious issue and urged the VGMA audience not to overlook it.”
“Kaakie has been very passionate about Maternal Health and she is never hidden the fact that, it was this passion that compelled her to study nursing specializing in midwifery so she can play her role to ensure cases of maternal health is reduced in the country” Sadeeq Abdulai, her manager added.
Kaakie won the two awards she was nominated for which is “Best Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year” with het hit song “Toffee Pon Tongue” and “Best New Artiste Of The Year”. This brings to three (3) the awards she’s garnered so far in her nearly two year career, having won Yfm Ghana’s “Best New Artiste” at the “Loud In GH” concert last year. Meanwhile, she has also been nominated in University of Ghana’s Excellence awards as the “Discovery Of The Year”.
She starts her tour next week, May 25th in Tamale and already preparations has started in earnest to ensure a successful event. The tour will be produced by Rackus Productions and her label, Xtra Large Music. For her fans in Tamale she just urged them to come out in their numbers next Saturday to “run things Inna their city” as she brings her two Awards home.
On the night the flamboyant looking Kaakie wore a dress by Pistis and Steve Madden shoes. On the sidelines of the Awards Kaakie thanked God, her fans, her management team, Elorm Beenie, Sadeeq Abdulai, Kimberly Coleman, Royce Greene and one person who is been a pillar in her Career Joshua “JMJ” Raphaelson and her god father Samini.
I believe Kaakie has come to realized her womanhood with the massive support she should for thousands of maternal mortality victims. She won the new artiste of the year to her credits. That’s a great job from Kaakie and her Etra Large management. We say a very big “AYIKOOO” to Kaakie and her management for this great achievement in her young music career.
