Yaa Pono has finally explained why he sings mostly about ‘marijuana’ otherwise known as ‘Ganja’.
Uptown Energy Boss – Yaa Pono says he sings about Marijuana because it is a source of motivating everybody.
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Yaa Pono revealed that most of the songs he does for the youth about marijuana are for motivational purposes.
He first said:
“I’m not sure people see me as ganja ambassador but mostly I do such songs for the street. I did a song titled highgrade so most of the people play it at the ghettos.”
“It has motivational words in it that’s why they love it and not because it’s about wee. I didn’t even say in the song that anyone should go and smoke but I said if I get I will smoke. So it’s not for radio play but for the streets because every year I drop a song for the streets.”
The hardest rapper further stated that his ‘wee’ songs may have made some people perceive him to be a ‘Ganja’ ambassador but most people don’t associate his brand or timeline to be a marijuana crusader.
“Me doing this for them every year may bring that perception but if you follow my timeline nobody associates my brand with marijuana.
“But when I go to Holland I do go to the coffee shop to get some nice parcel for my personal consumption.”
Yaa Pono is one of the few artists who have been singing about ganja for long.
