A Tema resident from birth, Yaa Pono has quickly risen to become not just Ghana’s but one of Africa’s premier and best-loved freestyle hip-hop artists.
His fast wit, natural charisma, use of the Akan language, and sharp social observations are some of the reasons behind Pono’s championing on the social media site, YouTube, by his legion of fans. Blending these elements with highlife, hip-hop, dancehall, and afrobeat rhythms demonstrates Pono’s true versatility. His re-emergence as Ghana’s most respected rapper (and singer) is set.
After appearing on several local radio shows and competitions, Yaa Pono entered the studio in 1995. He can count artists such as Sarkodie, Stay Jay, Guru, D Cryme and Chris Waddle among his contemporaries as they often appeared together at gigs. Dr Duncan’s ‘Kasahari Level’ show proved the platform for bringing Pono’s unparalleled skill to the World.
Joining Ghana’s esteemed Pidgen Music record label in 2009, offered Pono more opportunities to develop and broaden his creative repertoire whilst working with the finest producers in the country.
“Yaa Pono is the best live performer in the whole World! This is not an exaggeration!”- FOKN Bois
