Gyakie revealed candidly that the inspiration for “DECEMBER” came from a deep heartache experienced by a loved one. This highly personal event inspired the song’s creation, giving it a sense of sincerity and emotional depth that appeals to a wide range of audience.


During an interview with Onua TV’s Entertainment Presenter, Nana Adwoa Annan, Gyakie shed further light on the origins of the song. Responding in Twi, a Ghanaian local dialect, she poignantly expressed, “se meye nipa,” meaning “I am human.” This simple yet profound statement underscored Gyakie’s vulnerability and humanity, emphasizing that even artists are not immune to the pain of heartbreak.

DECEMBER,” which was posted on Friday, April 5, 2024, has already received an amazing 655,000 views on YouTube in just nine days, demonstrating the film’s universality and resonance. For her, the song is more than just a form of entertainment; it is a painful representation of her own lived experience, a true-to-life story of love lost and heartache endured.

However, the month of December 2023 was tarnished by the absence of a loved one, casting a pall over what should have been a joyous occasion. During this period of rehabilitation, Gyakie wrote the passionate lyrics that would later become the soul-stirring song “DECEMBER.”

Look into my eyes, what you find, what you see, is what you did to me,” sings Gyakie, encapsulating the raw vulnerability and emotional depth of “DECEMBER.” In her music, she lays bare her soul, inviting listeners to embark on a journey of introspection and self-discovery. And as the song’s haunting melody lingers in the air, one thing becomes abundantly clear.
