Zy Akosa
Year Group: 1976

Zy (pronounced zai) lives in North Carolina. Originally from Ghana, Zy attended Adisadel College and first came to the United States to pursue higher education. He holds a masters degree in business administration (MBA) with a major in finance from New York University's Stern School of Business. After graduation, he worked as a corporate banker in New York before returning to Ghana to pursue a career as a transactions investment broker and engage in real estate.

In 2000, Zy gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ and embarked on a new journey as a soldier in the army of the Lord. This walk with the Lord led him back to the United States in 2005. On July 29, 2007, he began work on this music project. This was Zy's first significant involvement in the music business. Initially he intended to be a producer, bringing together various talents to create a product. As the work progressed, with encouragement from his collaborator, Jonathan Burton, Zy took on the task of becoming the artist himself. Studio work began on Saturday, 12/01/2007. Zy wrote all of the songs on the CD. He produced and arranged all the songs in collaboration with Jonathan Burton. He is the lead vocal on all 16 songs as well as the background vocalist on all but one song.

ZyZy is also the executive producer of this CD. This CD became published on July 14, 2008 and was officially released on July 24, 2008. With no musical ability in terms of playing any instruments, but just the ear for the right sound, Zy believes that all credit for this production belongs to God, the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit who dwells in him to direct him. If you look at the credits at the back of the CD, you will notice that the first credit is given to The Helper. Those who are familiar with the word of God recognize the name. The Helper is another name for The Holy Spirit as mentioned by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in the book of John, chapter 14 verse 16; and again in John 14:25.

Zy considers his full time work to be a prayer warrior for the Lord. Everything else is secondary to that. It is Zy's hope that the success of this CD will provide a forum for enlightening the world on the knowledge of Jesus Christ for that is the single most important knowledge for everyone. Zy is a single father of a son - Judah (means 'Praise') named after the lead tribe of Israel, the earthly lineage of Jesus Christ who is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Enter into the presence of God with praise. Romans 14:8-9// 'If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this reason, Jesus Christ died and returned to life so that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living'. Romans 11:35-36// "Who has ever given to God that God should repay him? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things" All Glory belongs forever to the Greater One who is in all, for all, with all and above all.

Zy's Latest Music CD - "Truth 2008"

Visit and listen to the just released Pop/Rock/Jazz/Dance/R & B/Reggae/Blues Double CD from Zy - titled: TRUTH 2008.
