Students in tertiary schools will have a mouthpiece on radio today Friday, May 18, 2012. Rising hot musician Solomon Adu Antwi, popularly known as Yaa Pono, will be hosting a number of tertiary students from different tertiary institutions in the country dubbed ‘Tertiary Talk’ on Xfm 95.1 on the station’s morning show, ‘The Big Bite’.
‘Tertiary Talk’ is aimed at getting students to put forward their numerous concerns to the right quarters. Yaa Pono has been connected to radio and ‘The Big Bite’ for some time now and has already discussed issues concerning work as an underground music artiste, poor patronization of made-in Ghana products and other catchy topics.
The ‘Uptown Energy’ Tema-based rap star, who is signed on to Pidgin Music Records, is believed to be the King Kong when it comes to freestyle rap in Ghana, because his style of rap depicts Ghana’s version of Eminem or Jin.
He has a good lyrical dexterity and employs more than a single language in his rap style to catch the attention of his fans; hence he has become a household name with tracks like ‘Good Morning’ featuring Efya, ‘Mmoasem’, ‘1 Perma’ and so much more. Yaa Pono can make a rap out of nothing; throw him an object and he will come out with a good punch line around it.
His rap style has some elements of uniqueness which he also portrays on his show on radio. Make a date with Yaa Pono this and every Friday on Xfm 95.1 between 7:30am and 10am.
