Ghana’s most ingenious and biggest urban entertainment radio channel, Y97.9Fm, come Saturday, the 23rd of May, will be introducing a new 30-minute talent-hunt segment on the Party Pressure dubbed, TJDJ’s Fame in 5.
TJDJ has set out on a quest to find budding artistes, and give them a chance to unveil their stupendous acts to the station’s amazingly vast audience, as well as have their songs included in the YFM playlist for promotion.
The maiden edition of TJDJ’s Fame in 5, powered by YFM Takoradi’s Party Pressure, will commence at 9pm, exactly one hour after the main show, Party Pressure has begun. There will be exclusive features of two of Ghana’s dancehall stalwarts, Jupitar and Epixode on the show.
