Kumasi’s Finest; Kwame Poku Scientific Almalgamates With YFM
Radio don, Kwame Poku Scientific quits Solid, heads for YFM:
Kumasi based radio star Kwame Poku “Scientific”, has left Solid FM 103.7mhz for the newest radio station in the Ashanti regional capital (Kumasi) YFM 102.5 MHz. Kwame Poku Scientific was the host of Kumasi’s most listened program on radio every saturday called the “Solid fm freestyle saturday”. This radio program groomed a lot of talents in the Kumasi Music scene and Ghana as a whole. The likes of Strongman, Spydee, Ratty and Kofi Jamar, are all products of this exciting show hosted by the man “Tific”; as the youth calls him.
Kwame Poku, whose exit left many surprised tells his publicist, he had a great time at solid fm but felt the time was ripe for a fresh challenge and an opportunity to speak and relate more to the youth.”I think I can better do that on the YFM’s brand”, he said. The young broadcaster who couldn’t hide his excitement believes joining the YFM brand is the beginning of bigger things in his radio career.
He also appealed to his fans to continue supporting him as they have always done and promised to keep serving them to the best of his abilities. YFM’s presence on the Kumasi radio scene seem to have given several English language oriented stations a heavy knock as many presenters are deserting their stations in favor of the new brand. We can also confirm that, NYDJ who used to be with Kapital radio has also joined YFM, Kumasi.
Many young people interviewed from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology were also nursing high expectations of the new brand and indicated they will listen to this new station for youth-tailored entertainment.
