My stage name is the reason I'm still an underground artist - Yaa Pono

Front liner of the UpTown Energy, Yaa Pono, otherwise Ponobiom, has said his stage name has negatively affected the progress of his career making it arduous for him to get the attention he deserves.

 The versatile rapper has received many criticisms and backlash from music lovers and showbiz enthusiasts due to his brand name "Yaa Pono" which they say is uncultured and related to 'Bosam cartoons'

 Commenting on the perception, in an interview with Showbiz last Tuesday he noted that, the Fourth Estate of the Realm has blacklisted his songs because of the claim his name is related to 'ashawo movies'.

 "I have very powerful songs but the media houses I went to preferred that I changed my name before they played my songs. I suffered this for a long time but it is better now".

 He added that he would have been rated an A-list artist currently if the media gave him a chance by playing his songs like they did to his colleagues.

 Yaa Pono further revealed that despite several attempts to explain the acronym of his name PONO as 'Prince Of New Origin' critics especially the electronic media have pay no attention to it.

 "... I am tired of explaining the meaning of PONO. It is an abbreviation for Prince Of New Origin (PONO) and I don't care how anyone wants to interpret it.. "

 Asked if he will change his name in the near future the GMA UK 'Rapper of the Year', told Showbiz, nothing will influence him to do such a thing.

 "I have had this name for a decade and nothing will make me change it because I have have achieved a lot with it and I love it regardless"

 Christened Solomon Adu Antwi, and known professionally as, Yaa Pono aka Ponobiom, is a Ghanaian based rapper and singer.

 Referred to by many as the best freestyle rapper Ghana as ever had.

 He is credited with songs like, 'Amen', 'Me Ko London', 'Gbee Nabu', 'Obia Wo Ne Master' among others.
