The rapper, who now prefers to be called Pono Biom, said despite several attempts to explain that PONO stands for “Prince Of New Origin”, music enthusiasts especially the media still find it difficult to accept it.

“I am tired of explaining the meaning of PONO. It is an acronym for Prince Of New Origin (PONO) and I don’t care how anyone wants to interpret it,” he said.

Born Solomon Adu Antwi, but commonly known as Yaa Pono who has been bashed several times for using that name, says nothing will make him change his name.

“I have had this name for a decade and nothing will make me change it because I have achieved a lot with it and I love it regardless”, he added.
