Upcoming Celeb To Watch Out For: The Underground King, Is Yaa Pono The Next Take Over?

 

 

Yaa Pono

Yaa Pono

 


The name “Yaa Pono” sounds funny and catches the mind when mentioned. The bearer of this name is lyrically retarded and stupid; he has a good control over words and has a good sense of humour engraved in his rap style.

Many believe he is the underground King Kong when it comes to freestyle rap in Ghana. I believe he is 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.

He can make a rap out of nothing, Throw him an object and he will come out with a good punch line around that subject. His rap style has some element of uniqueness and since the day I came across his freestyles, I have been  a fan on a watch out to see if he can push his way through to become the next Big name in the Ghanaian Music Industry.

Prior to various freestyle rap videos of Yaa Pono appearing on social networking sites like Youtube and Facebook, those in Ghana might have heard him on Dr Ducan’s Kasahara Level Show on Adom Fm.

It was the same show that discovered and brought Sarkodie to us. Actually, Yaa Pono and Sarkodie used to be very “tight paddies”, hustling through Studios to chase their dream of music.

When success comes, many forget friends and this happened to the two youngsters. Sarkodie was lucky to firstly see the light and has since kept a distance from Yaa Pono.I rather thought he would help him come out of the underground world too. (Anyway, this is not the subject of my write up so will not go into it, maybe when I find some time, would consider blogging on that…)

Tema is the rap factory..Yaa Pono says in one of his freestyles and it could be true since various big and successful rappers like R2bees and Sarkodie belong to the T.E.M.A clan…

Check Out Below the various freestyles from the man I prefer to call..The Next Take Over.

Hve U heard about Dr Cryme, he neva really lost a battle on Kasahare. The only battle he lost was the Final between himself and Sarkodie. Pono is OK bt Cryme is illllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!!

brian Miyagi Berchie says:

brian berchie says:

@abena227 but don’t forget sarkodie is part of the TEMA crooklyn clann aswel

Boss says:

Uptown energy!!!!!!!!!! Yaa Pono ALL DAY EVERYDAY!!!!

ghallday says:

@Boss, s3 me koa na m’at3!!

Miyagi says:

Lol that’s the damn slogan

BOSSKY says:

BIG UPS TO YAA PONO. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST RAPPERS IN GH NOW. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT HE IS THE BEST. UPTOWN ENERGY

Miyagi says:

I believe that 

brian berchie says:

@abena227 I agree with you that yaa pono is the only one that can face him lyrically but watching yaa pono rapping and smoking weed at all times that will be his weak point one day don’t get me wrong dude is good and got heavy flow he is a real born hustler started from the ground coming to the top and he is always there no doubt about that but the question is will he still remember where he came from once he put the pen to the paper cause I realize a lot of Ghana Celebs. Once they reach something they change their image they forget the once that helped him and that’s when the Gold diggers comes in the money hungry b*tches and when you look at yaa pono is he a man that will stay away from those type of people as long as he keep his head up he is good to go but yet like you said it would be a easy battle T.E.M.A Boys aint that easy that’s true there is a lot of them down there who are lyrical true that

Abena227 says:

@brianberchie, i strongly beg to differ, i think of all the artist out the right now, yaa pono is the only one that can face off against sarkodie. don’t get me wrong i know sark will probably win hands down but its not going to be easy though comparing to the other artists

ghallday says:

@Abena227,That’s true. He is the only one if given the chance to make it big will come up squarely against Sarkodie…and obidi knows this too well.

kluivert noi says:

GC ITS A CERTIFIED INFOR PAYDAY OF R2BEES IS GOING OUT WITH EZZY.

brian berchie says:

@abena227 yaa pono is lyrical oke but don’t think he will be able to face Sarkodie lyrical sarkodie will eat him up compare 007 with I’m so hood of sarkodie they both on mixtape and see who spit more fire

Abena227 says:

Sarkodie better watch out, this dude is spittin faya for real. Damn he’s great, the next thing indeed, I like all the freestyles. I will like to see him in a freestyle battle with Sarkodie though lol
