Yaa Pono, the uptown energetic rapper from Pigen Music, has in his latest single dissed some of the well-noted Emcees in the music industry.
The diss track was released weeks after the controversial music duo Foes Of Kwame Nkrumah Bois (FOKN) named Yaa Pono in its ‘What you dey Fear’ song as the best Emcee.
The ‘Good morning’ hit maker Yaa Pono, in his ‘Bayla Trap’ remix song, punched hard at the Rap Doctor Okyeame Kwame and his fellow Tema boys R2Bees.
“I’m so shocked that after 20 years your trap has now caught Bayla,” NEWS-ONE gathered from a verse in the Yaa Pono’s new single.
‘Bayla’ is the local name given to a bush rat in Ga. A line in the song also meant that if R2Bees had caught a bush rat with its ‘Bayla Trap’, it should enjoy its bush meant while Hiplife artiste Asem made all the money in the industry.
Yaa Pono compared the Rap Doctor Okyeame Kwame in the track to a Nigerian ‘Lil Wayne’.
Why he did that baffles critics in the industry.
NEWS-ONE can confirm that Yaa Pono’s track was released as a direct reply to R2Bees’s ‘Bayla Trap’ song which was meant to tell the rest of the Hiplife artistes that it (R2Bees) had struck gold in its music career and was leaving the rest of them behind.
