Y FM Kumasi’s very own Koo Sebor premiered on Saturday, June 16 on Lift Off show “Eyes On The Road”, a song off his upcoming project. He explained the musical project “Recrate Sessions” as a repackaging of old but gold songs which we jammed to in the early days. Thus all the songs will take inspiration from old classics, from the production sense and the whole creative process. The first single off the project features Sketchy, and production was handled by Trino Tunez, both of BKC. The song is a remake [recrate in this case] of Reggie Rockstone’s hit song. The lyricism, flows and instrumental won’t let you sit down. I listened and I’ve been in anticipation of the full project till now.

I had my 4 years university education in Accra. Barely did I have time to listen to the radio, but as the addiction goes on, I was stuck on Twitter. It was at the same time I was building Steeze Hub’s social media, hence I’d stalk Y FM’s Twitter. I kept on seeing “Show prod. by @KooSebor.” The name sounded funny to me, and I wanted to meet the character behind this interesting name. Fast forward, post-school times in Kumasi, when cooling off at the iconic BKC studio at Bantama, one guy came through with spectacles, a protruding belly and afro hair covered with a snapback. He’d later be introduced to me as Koo Sebor.
Inasmuch as I had imagined a different character before meeting him, I had to accept the new Koo Sebor I my mental imagery faculty. Forcing friendships isn’t my thing, and since most radio personalities are arrogant, I had to keep the convo as natural as possible. Surprisingly, this guy was down to earth, before I realized, we had exchanged numbers and were close friends.
At the time, he was the producer and co-host of “Dryve of Ur Lyf” radio show on Y102.5 FM, Kumasi. He also hosted “Roots N Revival”, a Reggae/Dancehall show. In 2018, he commenced with “Lift Off”, a 3-hour programme filled with the best of entertainment and showbiz education. Segments in the show involve Come-Up of the Week (in which he interviews an upcoming musician with an appreciable hustle), Moment of Fame (in which he has a live studio session with mostly Kumasi-based creatives), and The Score (a discussion segment with unfiltered edutainment). DJ Bongo spins good music which doesn’t mostly get airplay throughout the 3 hours
Immediately, he put me on The Score as a regular pundit. Thence, he has featured loads of rappers, singers, producers, artists, and so on. The standout factor is, he does it willingly and charges not even a penny. Currently, if not the only one, he stands as one of the few of such a dying breed in Kumasi, who puts on for showbiz cats in Kumasi.
I’m old enough to know that the one who wholeheartedly helps people gains blessings and progress. With that being said, Koo Sebor shall be here for a long time!
In Ghana, the music scene is filled with a great deal of mainstream acts. However, there are a triple of that number in the upcoming front who are putting all efforts together to make it to the top.

The Hip-Hop culture in Ghana has always been here, and a lot of guys including me are heavily influenced by it. Hip-Hop is the way we live, and it’s not negative as many portray it. As the Hip-Hop community continues to grow in Kumasi, it has become necessary for the organization of street cyphers to bring enthusiasts together. Hood Cyphaz was a success, hence Pool Cyphaz is envisioned to be even better. A cypher is basically a group of people assembling in one place to participate in freestyle rap sessions.
The event is slated to happen on Dec 30 at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) poolside. A lot of dope emcees are lined up to give you full satisfaction of the art. We’re talking about emcees like BKC Music acts i.e. Kofi Jamar, Obey and Sketchy, Blurr, Ice Box, and a host of others.
The event will be hosted by YFM presenter, Koo Sebor, and it’s been put up together by the All Black crew. Other side attractions involve swimming competition and twerk sessions. The rates for the event are as follows: Advance: 10 cedis, Single: 15 cedis, Double: 25 cedis.
Oseikrom people, come witness heavily talented rappers do endless freestyles full of bars, metaphors, literary devices and punchlines. Follow @SteezeHub on our various social media platforms for updates on Pool Cyphaz. Track updates using the hashtag #PoolCyphaz17.
In most countries, especially Ghana, Friday night is time for relaxation, and dealing with the stress that one faced throughout the week. To make this precious moment solid, it’s necessary that we sing along to a common tune. And that’s what Sketchy brings to the table. The story of “Friday Night” starts when Y FM presenter (co-host of Dryve of Your Lyf) Koo Sebor alerts Sketchy how they lack cash although they still want to pop bottles and have fun. On a nostalgic 90s Hip-Hop/R&B instrumental produced by S.S.K, Sketchy lays smooth flows, detailing how he makes Friday night special, and assuring that the drinks are on him. Kofi Jamar comes through with the most befitting hook with his silky voice. From the camp of BKC music, we present to you this classic.
