Is Gyakie a virgin?

It all began after a presenter questioned Gyakie’s vir.ginity status in an interview. The songstress in her answer, stated categorically that she is still a vir.gin at age 22.

However, a Twitter user identified as Kofi Billo who claims to know Gyakie from her Senior high school days at Real AMASS in Kumasi, tweeted with the allegation that Gyakie is not a vir.gin as she claims.

According to the Twitter user, his school father back in the day at Real AMASS in Kumasi used to ‘do’ it with Gyakie.

Kofi Billo tweeted: “I watched your interview on tv and when the host asked u, ‘are you a vir.gin’ u replied ‘yes’ meanwhile my school father was the one who used to knock you down in AMASS Ksi.”
