Too Much Talent presents Artistes to Watch - Akile Aqui

In this series, Too Much Talent powered by Hennessy has teamed up with Drop the Mic to profile the artistes you should be keeping your eye on.

Akile Aqui entered into the entertainment arena in 2010 as a jazz and neo-soul vocalist.

Though she is currently pursuing a career as a pediatric neurosurgeon with the University of the West Indies, she has long since vowed to keep music a prominent part of her journey.

Like many artists, Akile testifies to the healing properties of music and uses it as an avenue through which she can show love to herself and to others.

In 2018, she shared her healing powers with patrons and participants of the annual New Fire Festival; an experience that has left its mark in her memories.

She is currently working on her EP which she hopes to launch in February 2020.
