Her voice has not been heard on any studio-produced recording for over a decade and a half but singer, actress, public relations practitioner and radio/television presenter, Jackie Ankrah, is now back with a fresh track called Oda.
Oda is Jackie’s first outing in 16 years. The last time she brought something out was in 2001 with her ‘So Glad’ album which contained sparkling tracks such as Shidaa, Bridge Over Troubled Water and You’ve Got A Friend.
“It’s taken me quite a while to record something new but I haven’t been completely lost on the music scene,” Jackie says.
“I’ve been singing in churches, at weddings, funerals and at national and corporate events. I also organised my ‘Sounds of Sweetness’ concerts for a few years” she said.
According to Jackie, the 16-year break from recording afforded her time to learn, grow and work closely with other musicians such as SP Kofi Sarpong, Akablay and Amandzeba.
“I have had time to reflect and write more material,” she said.
Electronic media consumers know Jackie as the charming presenter of ‘Asanka Delight’ on television and ‘Nestle Nutrition Line’ on radio.
She is currently working with a team of accomplished musicians on her next album and promises her fans plenty of refreshing, inspirational music. In the meantime, Jackie prays that Oda would bless listeners’ lives and fill their hearts with peace.
