Introducing Myra Kay and debut single ‘Dance The Night Away’

With an infectious innocent smile and voice she answered when I asked ‘how long have you been singing for? She said; ‘I have been singing ever since I was about 6 years old, whilst living in Atlanta Georgia with my family…’

‘Ms Myra Kyeremeh’ being her official birth name is popularly known as ‘Myra Kay’ in the music circles and amongst peers as her stage and artistic name was born in Atlanta, USA to Mr and Ms Kyeremeh some nineteen years ago. Myra Kay, now in her late teens, moved back to Ghana at the age of five years where she continued her education at the nursery and primary level until she was thirteen years old when she was moved back to the United States, Atlanta Georgia to stay with the rest of the family. In Georgia she completed her high school education and is currently pursuing multiple degree programmes in the States.

After realising her God given talent she made an effort to developed her vocal and writing capabilities over the years, now a solid promising up and coming female musician with a wealth of exciting musical and acting talents with lots of energy .Myra Kay’s dream, she said, ‘is to be able to influence and help people from all walks of life across the world with her music and message’. She further went on to disclose her intentions and ultimate hope to become ‘one of the biggest female musicians in Ghana and across the globe’. Myra also hinted during the interview that she will love to collaborate with the like of Efya, Raquel, Becca whom she listened to when growing up; she went on to expand the list to include Mr.Eazi , Koredo Bello, Nanso Amandi, Tiwa Savage, Wiz Kid, Davido and many many more renowned musicians across Ghana and Africa .

With a strong conviction she said, ‘Music has always been my number one passion and I put that passion and energy into every song each and every time I write music. My mother has been my biggest inspiration of all time, growing up she exposed me to many songs and artist alike due to her personal love for music, she will ask me severally to sing for her when I was a little girl, Myra Kay lamented. She intends to use her music to educate and touch lives of her small but growing following in Ghana and across the world.

Myra Kay is currently an independent artist ready with her first official single audio and video written, co-produced and directed by her, titled ‘Dance The Night Away‘. The online release was on the 13 Of April, 2017, in Atlanta Georgia and across the world via the YouTube platform and other online digital streaming platforms.

Myra Kay is currently in talks with BlackStar SR Entertainment to finalise a recording and management deal to take her to the next level of her young but promising music carrier. I got the opportunity to ask the C.E.O of the label Mr .Stephen Creppy about the possibilities of working with such a new budding talent, he said ‘Well, we are very experienced in the music industry so far us the Ghana industry is concerned and we also come with a wealth of experience from the international scene and this reflects in all our products and services, if we do reach a consensus it will be a match made in heaven ,Ghana and the world will now have another quality product musically from the camp of BlackStar SR Entertainment’.
