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.
Ashy’s vocal ability is quite distinct. She has a unique range; her voice is dynamic, powerful and quite comparable to singers such as Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin and Etta James.
Ashy Akakpo’s mission is to empower, encourage and testify on what Jesus has done for her and how He can do the same for you, through her music.
She is releasing her first single ‘Without Condition’ February 16, 2020 (which will be available on all streaming platforms).
