Apart from singing and acting, she is also an excellent guitarist.

Becca has gone on to win various awards. Her accolades include one Kora Award, one National Youth Achievers Award, four Ghana Music Awards, and three 4Syte TV Music Video Awards. In 2013, she headlined the annual Girl Talk concert, which started in 2011. Becca was ranked 94 on Ghana's 2013 list of the 100 most influential people in Ghana.
