“True to his words, he took me to a studio and I composed a song in no time. That was when it dawned on me that I could sing,” she explained. “Personally, I love music and I have done something with Brother Sammy for an orphanage my foundation takes care of so it doesn’t come to me as a surprise that I have released a single today,” she said.
Emelia Brobbey added that she loved all female artistes in the music industry but she really loved the energy in Akosua Agyapong.

“These days, people hardly call me by my name, wherever I go, they just call me Okukuseku. I went on Adom Live Worship and when I said Okukuseku, the whole crowd responded ‘Onipa Ho Ye Hu’, it was a very humbling experience for me,” she stated.
