It has recently come to our notice that Sunyani based promoter – Hills Entertainment - is fraudulently promoting an event billing our client, Yaa Pono, as appearing without prior consent and agreement from Management. An example of the fraudulent billing is above. Please note that Yaa Pono WILL NOT be appearing at the “Face of High Skul Finals & Old Skul Reunion” event organised by Hills Entertainment in collaboration with Starz Energy Drink on 30th August, 7.30pm at Sunyani Poly Auditorium as Management was not consulted prior to advertising.
We advise any persons who have already parted with money for this event to contact Hills Entertainment for a full refund and also their local Police station to report the matter. The numbers given for Hills Entertainment are: 020 579 6280 / 023 334 4457 / 020 048 1659.

Our team take great pride in working with Pono to further the development of his talent and brand by adhering to his annual work plan, managing his back catalogue, future career plans and selecting appropriate appearances for him. Random actions taken by unauthorised parties do nothing to help or further Yaa Pono’s career and so we ask that any required Yaa Pono activity is sought via the correct and proper steps. Fraudulent activity by unscrupulous individuals only serves to extract money from genuine fans keen to see and hear from Yaa Pono – this is fundamentally wrong and we hope that these fans are able to recover their money.

Potential event sponsors should be mindful to ensure that they request and receive written management confirmation of Yaa Pono’s involvement from the promoter before releasing funds as a way of safeguarding their budget and PR when the artist does not attend the event. YAVA Global does not accept any liability for fraudulent 'bookings'.

Any event appearances or music releases that have been confirmed and authorised by YAVA Global for our client will be publicised via Yaa Pono’s various social media accounts: Twitter (@ponobiom), Facebook personal (Yaa Pono), Facebook Fan Page (Pono Biom), Instagram (Pono Biom) and the relevant mass media – TV, radio, online and print. Management contact details are clearly stated on these accounts in order to prevent similar instances. Excuses will not be tolerated.

Whilst we continue to welcome all genuine enquiries regarding our Client via the correct channels, please note that all fraudulent behaviour will be reported to the Police (Ghana and Internationally) for investigation, enforcement and prosecution.
As always, Yaa Pono, Uptown Energy and YAVA Global acknowledge and appreciate the huge amount of love, dedication and continued support shown to Pono by his fans Worldwide. We urge those fans to remain vigilant and report anything unusual to Management for action.

Please see below for the relevant contact details for engaging Yaa Pono.
