It is the job of a radio disc jockey to play songs of artistes, but it takes more than usual for a prominent artiste to take some time off to big up a DJ. In that essence, such a happening is news. In the evening of November 20, 2018, the BET and MTV award winner, and currently awarded NEA Best Male Artiste, Sarkodie Continue reading “Sarkodie Lauds Y FM’s DJ Aroma”
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!
