Ashy Akakpo is a 21-year-old gospel and neo-soul singer/songwriter from North West London. Ashy has always had a passion for music. From quite a young age you’d endlessly find Ashy humming a tune she’d have created herself. Singing quite loudly in the living room to her imaginary audience and recording herself on her tape recorder.
As a child, Ashy was encouraged to sing at church, various school events and outside of school too by family and friends.
One Saturday evening, after she had sung at a concert at her church, someone came over to her and told her she should release a single or CD. So, after years of prayer and consideration, she decided to take up the challenge in October of 2019, with God as her guide.
Her singing style is quite soulful. Her vocal ability is powerful, dynamic, rich and similar to Mahalia Jackson, Alicia Keys, and Tramaine Hawkins.
In February of 2020, Ashy released her debut single “Without Condition” and was nominated for the March UK Christian Charts. She has big plans concerning her music.
