Kaakie

She has not been active this year and after laying low on the music scene for some time, female dancehall artiste, Kaakie, has shown her preparedness to reclaim her position in the game with her second song in a month, Roof Is On Fire.

The first one Ronaldo was also released in October. Roof Is On Fire has a good blend of pidgin and Patois on a groovy beat, which is a welcome break from the regular Azonto, and Alkayida tunes we have become used to. 

The song is a tribute to her fans and Kaakie talks about partying and having fun with them regardless of whatever is happening around them. 

Even though Kaakie has been quiet all year, she seems to be bragging a lot about her bank account and stacks of money in the song. 


She boasts about her status as the maiden Dancehall Queen who is the "international currency spender" and the "other girls never bad and mad" as well as the fact that she still runs the game. 

It is unclear if Kaakie, real name, Grace Kaki Awo, is throwing jabs at the other female dancehall artistes in the industry who seem to be making waves currently. 

Roof Is On Fire is Kaakie's fourth single released in 2014 under her label, Xtra Large Music. 

She shot to prominence two years ago with her debut single, Too Much. She later released other popular songs such as Toffee Pon Tongue and DC Turn Up.

She won the Dancehall/ Reggae Artiste of the Year and the New Artiste of the Year awards at last year’s Ghana Music Awards.
